Johnny Cash’s 1970 Rolls-Royce up for auction

In 1970, at the height of his career, Cash needed a personal limousine. He turned to Rolls-Royce where he acquired a long-wheelbase Silver Shadow Saloon. At the time the Crewe factory did not produce a limousine, so Cash turned to a local Nashville coachbuilder, gave them his specifications and this is the final product. Cash used this limousine up through 1977 when it was sold to another private owner prior to coming to the Burdick collection.

    Classy-looking car for that period. Looks like the rocker panel chrome strip on the extension section may have aged a bit differently, though. I’ve always loved British “interpretations” of the motorcar concept.
