1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III Sedanca De Ville

William Gardner worked for Marion Davis ( a movie star, as well as William Randolph Hearsts’ mistress for some 30 years). Joe Kennedy was JFK’s father who was a movie producer in Hollywood during the 20’s. When JFK got married to Jacqueline Kennedy they honeymooned at Marion’s house in Beverly Hills where Bill had gotten a Job:
