R2 D2’s Corniche to Be Sold at H&H

A 1982 Rolls-Royce Corniche Mulliner Park Ward Coupe that was once the property of Kenny Baker, the man inside the much-loved Star Wars robot R2 D2, is to be auctioned at the next H&H sale, Buxton, July 25/26.

The only person to feature in all six Star Wars films, Birmingham-born Baker has appeared in many other productions over the years – invariably in the role of a dwarf, owing to his diminutive height of just 3 ft 8 in.

The pretty blue Corniche shows just over 63,000 miles on its odometer and is estimated to fetch £11,000-13,000. For further information on this or any other lots consigned to H&H’s upcoming Buxton sale, visit www.classic-auctions.com or call 01925 730630.
