That looks like a convertible right hand drive Jaguar E Type to me.

Like this: [www.collectorscarworld.com]

... but, with the addition of a luggage rack.

Well the car for sale is a left hand drive Pontiac...Rockman yours is what looks like a right hand drive jag. Different car...but both gorgeous. If I had a spare £20,000 I would buy it....just think of all the rock royalty's backsides that have been in there. I reckon if you dig down in the seats there could be all sorts of hidden treasures!

The Pontiac looks like this: if Keith owned it at Nellcote there surely ought to be one or two pictures of it about?

There's a photo of Keith etc in car outside Nellcotte in what appears to be same model of car, but the interior is different colour to the one up for sale.

Keith's old Pontiac car from Nelcote days goes up for sale - yours for a cool £22,000!
Posted by: Silver Dagger ()
Date: April 2, 2012 15:29

Here's the full story from today's Daily Mail (UK).

If cars could talk, this Pontiac once owned by Keith Richards would likely have many tales under its bonnet.

Now the soft-top, bought by the hell raiser when the Rolling Stones relocated to the South of France in the 1970s, is expected to fetch £22,000 at a Bonhams auction next month.

Richards used the 1950 Pontiac Chieftan Silver Streak motor during the bands' recording of Exile on Main Street, which includes the track Stop Breaking Down.
The 68-year-old loved it so much he kept the American-made vehicle until 1985 when it was sold to the present owner.


The Stones arrived on the Cote d’Azur in 1971 and were joined by a steady stream of visitors from novelist William Burroughs to singer Gram Parsons.
At one point during recording at the villa 'Nelcote' Richards was found asleep on his bed with a needle still poking out of his arm.

The band moved there to avoid tax and produced a double album that many fans consider one of their finest.

The car, which is left-hand drive and automatic, is being sold by Bonhams at the RAF Museum, Hendon.


John Polson, from Bonhams, said: 'It is a great piece of Americana which is also associated with the Rolling Stones during their most creative period.

'It is suitably wacky and outlandish and rather matches the personality of the band at the time. Keith Richards must have liked it because he didn’t sell it until 1985 when it was bought by the current British owner.

'It has never done a great deal of work and is in a lovely condition with the original paint and trim.

'It is not particularly economical but makes up with that in its coolness. And whatever happened on the back seat is best left to the imagination.

He added: 'It is hard to quantify what difference its link to a celebrity makes so we have estimated it just as a car and will leave it up to the market to decide.

'There has already been a great deal of interest and excitement.'
The sale takes place on April 30.


Richards kept the car until 1985 and then sold it to its present British owner. It is in a lovely condition with the original paint and trim, according to Bonhams

Made me laugh, they emphasised 'Stop Breaking Down' twice. Now are they trying to be funny cos it's a car, or is it because they just picked a random song from Exile to highlight, and if the latter, why would you pick that song as good as it is, there are many more which are better known.

The car in the Daily Mail's picture (648 YUH) is not the same one as the Bonhams picture (UXL 7). Any guesses which is the genuine article?

Keith Richards’s Pontiac, Bugattis Join Chinese Art at Auctions
Posted by: rlngstns ()
Date: April 3, 2012 14:14

By Scott Reyburn
April 3 (Bloomberg) -- A Pontiac convertible formerly owned
by Keith Richards may fetch as much as $35,000 as Rolling Stones
fans and car collectors are lured by a U.K. auction.
The dark blue 1950 Chieftain Silver Streak was used by the
guitarist as the band recorded “Exile on Main Street” at his
home in the south of France in the early 1970s.
The car, with an estimate of 18,000 pounds ($28,850) to
22,000 pounds, stars in the Bonhams April 30 auction at the RAF
Museum, Hendon. It is being sold by a U.K. classic car and
Stones enthusiast who acquired it directly from Richards in the
mid-1980s, said the London-based auction house.
The left-hand-drive convertible was originally supplied by
the now-defunct Pontiac marque specifically for the European
market and was Richards’s runaround when he rented Villa
Nellcote, near Villefranche-sur-Mer, in 1971.
Richards acquired it second-hand from a neighbor of the
U.K. novelist Somerset Maugham, said Bonhams. The band worked on tracks including “Rip This Joint,”
“Happy” and “Shake Your Hips” in the basement of Nellcote.
Beat novelist William S. Burroughs was among the visitors.


Denmark Bugattis




Two 1930s Bugattis will be included in an auction of more
than 175 autos from a classic-car museum in Denmark in August.
Offered without reserves, the cars from the Aalholm
Automobil Museum will be sold by R.M. Auctions on Aug. 12. The
event, featuring mostly vintage and prewar models, will be held
in the grounds of Aalholm Castle, a fortress overlooking the
harbor of Nysted.
The event has a total estimate of about 4 million euros
($5.3 million), the Canadian-based auction house said.
“It’s the first time we’ve offered a museum collection in
Europe,” RM’s German-based specialist Annette Abaci said in an
interview. “We’re normally associated with Ferraris and this
sale will be a chance to develop our market in Scandinavia.”
The museum was founded by auto enthusiast Baron J.O. Raben-
Levetzau in 1964 using the castle’s own 1911 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost “Roi des Belges” tourer as the starting point, RM said.
The Rolls-Royce will be included in the auction with an
estimate of 220,000 euros to 300,000 euros. The Aalholm Castle
estate was sold to Stig Husted Andersen in 1995 and the museum
closed in 2007 following Andersen’s death, said dealers.
A 1938 Bugatti 57C Stelvio Drophead Coupe by Gangloff has
been in the collection since 1965. It will be valued at 240,000
euros to 280,000 euros. A 1931 Bugatti Type 40A Tourer, one of
32 built, will be priced at 50,000 euros to 70,000 euros.
Many of the Aalholm museum’s more valuable cars were sold
by Sotheby’s in October 1994. That earlier auction, which also
included autos from other sellers, raised 865,778 pounds with a
top price of 83,172 pounds for a blue 1929 Mercedes-Benz 630K
tourer.
