Want to buy Jimmy's car?


Recommended Posts


If you are an avid car collector and love rare and distinctive-looking pre World War II cars, we’ve got one taste morsel for you. The at the Coys 'True Greats' London auction that’s going to take place this Wednesday, a rare 1936 Cord 810 Phaeton once owned by Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page has been entered.

The car has undergone a full concours restoration under his ownership and is in near-perfect condition right now. But the history behind this rare cochbuid brand is even more interesting than the idea of celebrity ownership.

Created by the legendary designer Gordon Buehrig, the Cord 810 created a sensation when it debuted at the 1935 New York Auto Show. It quickly grew in notoriety and was named the Baby Duesenberg. More recently, it was named among the 10 most significant cars of the 20th century by the Museum of Modern Art.

This particular example is painted in a lightly metallic shade of Royal Blue with a pleated interior in a matching leather tone.

Jimmy Page and Charlie Watts of The Rolling Stones are two among many non-drivers who have collected vintage automobiles thru the years.

I knew Jimmy didn't drive, but not Charlie. I guess you can still have quite an interest in cars without being able to drive them. Obviously for investment purposes and the resale value.
