Of the 516 Rolls-Royce Phantom Vs produced between 1959 and 1968, this is most definitely one of the most interesting of them all. This Phantom V was produced by Rolls Royce with coachwork completed by Mulltner Park Ward and originally finished in Valentines Black and delivered to John Lennon in 1965. Over the next year he spent so much time in it that he added many modifications, such as a radio telephone, a double bed, a custom sound system, a television and even a refrigerator. Always one for change, Mr. Lennon had the entire Phantom V painted matte black, and even the radiator and chrome trim were painted to match! Eventually he tired of this too and went searching for an alternative. In 1967 he found the artwork he was looking for, and after the rather intricate paint job was finished the car remained painted in this fashion for the next forty three years, retaining its striking appearance to this very day.

Sometime in 1970 the car was shipped to the U.S. and was loaned out to various rock stars such as Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. Eventually Mr. Lennon placed his psychedelic Rolls-Royce in storage, and it sat there for seven years until Mr. Lennon found himself in trouble with the United States Internal Revenue Service. Luckily, he was able to work out a deal to donate the car to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City for a tax credit of $225,000. Since then the car has changed hands a number of times and is currently under the care of the Royal British Museum in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
