As “Clyde” Frazier’s lore for living the good life on the east coast was legendary, so was “Big Nate” Thurmond’s on the west coast. Nate’s thirst for dressing to the nine’s, enjoying nightlife and driving fancy cars made him known not only for his basketball prowess. We are offering here Nate Thurmond’s classic 1965 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III. Nate is only the second owner of this car. Believe it or not, the original owner was country music icon Glenn Campbell. Nate has owned it since the late 1960s. The lucky winner of this famous vehicle will also get to have dinner with Big Nate and meet the legend himself, which will give you the opportunity to learn all the ins and outs of your new California classic car. On May 6, 2004 this car was professionally appraised at well over the Reserve bid. As you know, quality antiques such as these invariably increase in value. The automobile has several unusual features and Nate has installed a custom sunroof. It has factory air and was special ordered to US specifications.

The winner will also get to keep Nate’s custom “NATE 42” California license plates and there are several maintenance records are included as well.
