The late star has owned several Cadillacs during her life, including a particularly colorful one she nicknamed “Parakeet”.

The Seamist Green 1977 Seville was a surprise gift from her husband Allen Ludden which she drove for a quarter of a century.

The loaded sedan features a white vinyl roof, white leather interior, and an advanced AT&T-era car phone installed during its possession.

The well-known animal lover kept the Caddy until 2002, when she donated it to raise funds for the LA Humane Society. It was then handed over to the AACA Museum in Hersey, Pennsylvania., by owner Nicholas Ferrantino and remains in the collection today, according to the Executive Director of the Vintage Car Museum, Jeff Bliemeister.

“I loved this car so much and it was hard to part with it,” she wrote.

“I’m so glad to know where he is and that he’s in good shape. Please give him my love.”

Fans will be able to show their love for White and view the car at the museum on January 16 at a public event that was previously planned as a 100th anniversary celebration before his death and will now serve as a memorial to his life and career.
