Lot No. 480 -
1982 Rolls-Royce Corniche FHC - ex Kenny Baker
Formerly owned by the late Star Wars star Kenny Baker...registered on the 17th May 1982 this right-hand drive fixed head coupé was bought by the diminutive screen actor on the 6th June 2002. Birmingham-born Kenny, who died on the 13th August 2016, rose to prominence playing R2-D2, the robot sidekick in six of the Star Wars films, and acting as a consultant in the latest film. Presented to auction with a comprehensive history file and MOT until July 2017, this 76,500-mile luxury coupé will need some corrective work to the sills and bodywork.
This delightful article from The Guardian gives an insight to Kenny's day to day experience of his Rolls: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2016/apr/10/meeting-kenny-baker-the-man-behind-r2d2
