'Money Can't Buy Me Love' but enough of it can persuade even the most traditional coachbuilders to indulge a star's eccentric taste in paintwork.
The purists were horrified but Beatles fans saw it as another example of Lennon's fondness for cocking a snook at the establishment. Ye gods! The pinnacle of British engineering and he's made it look like damned carnival float! Which, of course, was the whole point. The antithesis of discretion and anonymity, 'Lennon's Roller' attracted stares and crowds wherever it appeared.
Apparently John was spectacularly bad behind the wheel so a chauffeur or one of the Beatle's entourage usually took the controls.
Which could mean that the original of this brilliantly detailed and psychedelically coloured 1:43 scale model was the inspiration for 'Baby You Can Drive My Car'.
Approximate measurement 6".
