Olivia de Havilland recently passed away at the age of 104. She was one of the last living legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood. During those golden years, she owned a Buick that was a blockbuster convertible. It was a 1935 Buick 66C convertible that she owned and drove during her time at Warner Bros.

A Vanity Fair article recounts the time that De Havilland drove her Buick to a clandestine meeting at MGM. The meeting was actually a discussion of her role in the 1930s film Gone With the Wind. De Havilland’s vehicle was just one of 111 66-Cs built in 1935.

The starting price for the model was listed at  $1,495. It included a 100 hp straight-eight engine, 3-speed manual transmission, and rumble seat, according to Fox News. The Buick offered three different shades of green for their vehicles. Since the photos of De Havilland with her car are all in black and white, many speculate that her car’s color was the light Runnymeade Green.
