Papal Escort up for grabs
A 1976 Ford Escort 1100GL MKII, the very last vehicle driven by Pope John Paul II, is slated to sell for more than £200,000 at auction. The car will be sold at Sotheby’s in London on September 5. It was bought for £550k by the current owner shortly after the pope’s death in April 2005. Many people question whether the price expected will be reached.
