John Lennon’s Rolls-Royce

John Lennon’s Rolls-Royce was a 1965 Phantom V model that he purchased in 1966. The car originally came in a conservative navy blue color, but Lennon chose to customize it to his liking. He commissioned Surrey coachbuilders J.P. Fallon to paint the car in a psychedelic pattern of yellow, green, and blue with mystical symbols and designs.

The car was also modified with various features such as a television, telephone, refrigerator, and a sound system that could be played outside the car. The license plate read “LMO,” which stood for Lennon, McCartney, and Oasis.

Lennon used the car extensively, including during his time with the Beatles, and it became a symbol of his eccentricity and individuality. It was also featured in a number of Beatles films and music videos.

After Lennon’s death in 1980, the car was donated to the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria, Canada. It was eventually sold to a private collector in the United States in 1985 for $2.3 million and has since been displayed at various exhibitions and events.
