Glen Campbell's Rolls Royce Corniche

Post by jay »

On page 63 of Kim Campbell's book "Gentle on My Mind: In Sickness and in Health with Glen Campbell" she states that Glen took her to a house he had recently purchased in Phoenix, Arizona and she observed as they drove up:
A cobblestone driveway passed through wrought iron entry gates where, in the circular motor court, Glen's cream-colored Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible stood, top-down to show off the cranberry leather seats.
This Rolls was reported to be an 80s model.

Update- The last legible letter on the rear of the wagon is "K", making it a Colony Park wagon, most likely a 1968.

Upper mid-level trim (woodgrain sides etc), plus the 'Stang in the picture- the Campbell Clan was doing all right at this point.

Nice little archive image, to boot. Blows up nicely to 8 X 10 if you wish.

Pretty sure the Mustang is a '66. Badging, wheel cover, and the body crease that barely clears the fender well point in that direction.

Not so good on the wagon, but it's certainly a FoMoCo product about the same vintage..

Glen Campbells 1968 Mercury Station Wagon and Ford Mustang

Post by jay »

I am sure it is a Ford Mustang. I am sure it is a Mercury station wagon. I am pretty close on the year model. I am not sure what make the station wagon is, but I will keep looking. It looks like an "E" by the tail light.

Glen Campbell's 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Station Wagon

Post by jay »

Glen Campbell is said to have received this car from Barris Kustom Industries in North Hollywood. It's "Persian Green" and was featured on the 1973 or 1974 edition of Motor Track magazine along with Evil Knievils Cadillac pick up truck. It was built specifically for Glen Campbell and was one of 7 built. There are no pictures available of the car with Glen. It has been sold and reconditioned several times and each time has been linked to Glen.

At one time, Glen owned this beautiful car. It was used in a photoshoot with Glen and Bobbie Gentry.

Glen Campbell and a 1947 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty

Post by jay »

Now, this may have been Glen's car! From all the car pictures we see Glen in, in the late 50's...this is one he may have been able to afford. Many thanks to the folks at the Antique Automobile Club of America for helping me ID it.

Glen Campbell and a 1954 Ford Crestline

Post by jay »

I would love to know more about this picture. Maybe it was taken out by Sandia Mountain? Who was Glen with? The car is as interesting. The Ford Crestline was only made for 3 years. It was the most expensive Ford you could buy from '52-'54.. The picture was taken in 1954.
