Equipped with a V12 engine, Panasonic RM-710 Cockpit overhead console car audio system and very early GE car phone. The car also includes window sticker, owner’s manual and original sale paperwork plus the car’s California title, signed by Sinatra. Of course, the Jag has its documentation on file from new and confirming Mr. Sinatra’s ownership of the car.
The other car, a gift for his wife, is a 1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I. This car features Peacock Blue with Beige interior piped in Surf Blue and a console specially covered to match the rest of the upholstery.
