Johnny Cash’s 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow For Sale

If you consider fuel economy, crash safety, and cabin tech to be distant runners up to a car’s cool factor when determining its value, get that piggy bank ready right now.

This is Johnny Cash’s onetime 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, a gift he received from the ABC network as a show of appreciation for The Johnny Cash Show. This legendary ride is up for auction at Barrett-Jackson, and it’s loaded with throwbacks to the man in black. It was clearly built to order, as evidenced by the gold “JRC” initials on the rear doors, and the long wheelbase and long door options were included so the singer-songwriter could ride in style from gig to gig. The electronic privacy partition also probably came in handy when Johnny’s driver wanted to talk about politics after a long show. And it’s still a Silver Shadow, so there’s plenty of Connolly leather, wood on the dashboard, and a V8 that cranks out 190 hp. [Purchase]
