Darling Buds of May Rolls Royce up for auction

The yellow Rolls Royce from the original Darling Buds of May television series is up for sale.

The Park Ward Landaulette was driven by Pop Larkin – played by Sir Davd Jason – in the comedy-drama that ran from 1991 to 1993.

The show gave Catherine Zeta-Jones her big break playing his eldest daughter Mariette.

The 20hp was last under the hammer only two years ago.

It fetched £100,00.

However, this time round, auctioneers H&H Classics had pitched the estimated price at £50,000 to £70,000.

The car is for sale at the Imperial War Museum, Kennington, south London, on November 17th.
