Jerry Lewis’ Rolls Royce
Lloyds Auctions gained widespread publicity when offering Jerry Lewis’ 1977 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith II”. That’s right, the legendary comedian and actor, Jerry Lewis who purchased this vehicle brand new in 1977!
One night after working on the set of his movie for 3 days straight, he left the car engine running all night long and it didn’t start again, so it sat in his garage for 20 years. Due to this, much of the paintwork and upholstery is still in immaculate condition!
Jeff Thomson’s Ford GTHO Phase III Falcon
The previous owner of this 1971 GTHO Phase III, said “This car has a soul. Everybody knows where this car has been”.
There won’t be another car like ‘Big Red’, with such an undisputed history. An important part of its’ history is its previous owner of nearly ten years, legendary Australian cricket fast bowler, Jeff Thomson.
Jeff was the fastest bowler in the world during the early 1970s and the 1971 Phase III was undoubtedly the fastest car of its time, dominating the top 10 of Australia’s Greatest Motoring Race – Bathurst. It was a natural fit; fast wanted fast!
Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Gear
The biggest event to ever hit the Gold Coast was anticipated and celebrated by many, including Lloyds Auctions. We were thrilled to be able to offer the famous gear from all areas of the Games to the public to buy and treasure.
