H&H Classics, the specialist auction house dedicated to the sale of collectors’ vehicles, will launch its first online live auction on Feb. 2, 2019—and the most exciting item is shaping up to be a 1985 Chrysler Le Baron Town & Country Turbo “Woody” Estate car once owned by Frank Sinatra.

According to rumor, the car is the last vehicle Sinatra owned and surprisingly, given its unglamorous look, one of his favorites. He reportedly was often chauffeured around Los Angeles in the vehicle during the final decade of his life.

The car comes with the certificate of title, featuring Sinatra’s name, signature, and an address of 70855 Sinatra Drive, Rancho Mirage, CA 92270.

“This first live online sale at H&H presents a unique opportunity to bid for a car from one of the biggest stars of the 20th century, which would be the center of attention of any collection or museum,” H&H says in a press release.

Past sales of cars owned by “The Voice” include a 1989 Jaguar XJS fixed-head coupe and a 1956 Ford Thunderbird.
