Guess which of these 3 celebrity-owned cars has appreciated the most – CNBC
A couple years later, an Italian-bodied 1953 Cadillac Series 62 Ghia would sell for about $3,500. There were only two of these particular custom cars made, and one was owned by Rita Hayworth’s husband, Aly Khan. It blended many of the characteristics of an American classic with Italian detail.
Shortly after that, a 1955 Buick Roadmaster also sold for about $3,500. However, Leno said he bought one used in 1972 for $350 and has since modified it with more power and features. Generally, this tends to devalue the car, but that doesn’t factor in the celebrity provenance of Leno.
Watch the video above to see which car has appreciated most by virtue of its famous former (or current) owner.
