"My Way" singer Frank Sinatra's 1985 Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country Station Wagon, believed to be his last vehicle, will be on sale in an online-only auction.
Along with a Fiat 124 Spider and a restored vintage 1961 Jaguar XK150, Sinatra's car will be sold to the highest bidder in H&H Classics' online auction on Feb. 19. It was said that the Ol' Blue Eyes drove around Las Vegas with this vehicle, or his chauffeur Nathan Golden behind the wheels, to avoid paparazzi.
"Accompanying paperwork includes an old US Certificate of Title signed by Frank Sinatra and Warranty Documents in his name," H&H explained on its website.
Frank Sinatra Used Last Car For A Decade
Many note that with Sinatra's style when it comes to cars, his last was certainly unexpected. According to the auction site, the Chrysler LeBaron was one of his favorites and which the star used in his last 10 years.
Meanwhile, rumors said Sinatra favored the car because he wanted to blend in by opting to go low-profile. As a nod to this, his last car was heavily tinted, hinting his desire to steer clear from the spotlight when driving or being driven for around town.
A Fan Of Chrysler
In addition, legend has it that the Sultan of Swoon was an avid fan of Chrysler, an Italian-American automobile manufacturer. This was fueled by Chrysler's gift of a limited edition Imperial coupe to the singer decades ago. The vehicle came in the singer's eye color and had 16 cassettes of his songs inside.
Another rumor states that Sinatra was actually discovered not because of his voice but because of the Chrysler he owned. As for the Chrysler LeBaron, he was allegedly a fan of the "Woody" wagons that date back to the 1940s.
Meanwhile, Sinatra's last car was rumored to fetch $32,000 but of course, this could still soar because of the celebrity factor. Judging by the late singer's other vehicle estates sold in auctions, this may be true. Other documented vehicles from Sinatra's garage include the 1989 Jaguar XJ-S that was snatched for over $140,000 and his 1956 Ford Thunderbird, for more than $130,000.
