Want to own one of Colonel Sanders’ suits?

Colonel Harland Sanders is a Kentucky icon. Now, you can own one of his trademark white suits.

Dick Miller, Sanders’ former driver and travel companion, is putting some of the Colonel’s personal items bestowed to him up for auction, including the suit, a watch, belt buckle, Stetson hat, state-issued drivers license and credit cards.

Miller, who met the Colonel by chance while picking up KFC takeout, drove for him from 1970 until his death in 1980, even driving the hearse to his final resting place in Cave Hill Cemetery. After that, he worked at the KFC Headquarters for 28 years.

The auction starts on October 15. If you have your heart set on the suit, you better start saving; the last Colonel Sanders suit that went up for auction sold for over $4,000.

      Yeah, his license was set to expire in 81, which is nine years before he was born. Makes perfect sense !

    if you born in Kentucky then Harland Sanders is your 3rd grandfather. Pay your respects to family and buy some KFC.

    One of his grandsons was my roommate and fraternity brother in college. Great family and amazing childhood pictures. He really did wear those suits everyday. I saw some Christmas photos and they’re opening gifts and he’s got on the white suit.
