NEW YORK (AP) — A 1941 Cadillac custom-built for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor is to be auctioned in New York City.
Dubbed "The Duchess," the limousine features rose-colored broadcloth upholstery, four jewelry cases and three cigar lighters.
It's estimated to fetch between $500,000 and $800,000. It's being sold Nov. 21 by Sotheby's and RM Auctions.
General Motors delivered the limo to the Windsors at the Waldorf Astoria, where they had a suite. The duke paid $14,000 for it.
One of the first Cadillacs to have power windows and is fitted with satin privacy curtains.
It's being sold with the car title bearing the duke's signature.
The current owner is an Alabama food critic and Cadillac collector. Morgan Murphy found it in a barn next to a tractor in Texas in 2005.
