Elvis Presley’s Stretch Limo, Harley and Pickup Are Headed to Auction
You can’t help falling in love with ... this Lincoln limousine
If you’re going to pair Elvis Presley with one car, it’s a Cadillac. Specifically, a pink 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood. But when you’re the King, brand loyalty doesn’t apply to you, as evidenced by three vehicles owned by Presley that are headed to auction this summer.
The highlights of Kruse GWS Auctions’ “Artifacts of Hollywood” sale are a Lincoln stretch limousine, Harley Davidson motorcycle and GMC pickup, all of which were Elvis’s personal cars, according to the Associated Press. The auction will take place on August 31st.
No other details about the sale are available at the time of the announcement, which means the estimated selling prices are anyone’s guess. As for the vehicles themselves, here’s what we know:
- 1973 Lincoln Continental: The white-on-white stretch limousine comes with “a fully documented history including original photos of Elvis with the car,” writes The Drive. Those photos, according to AP, show Presley in Memphis in 1976.
- 1976 Harley Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide: The auction house notes this particular motorcycle was with Presley for many years, only being sold off three months before he died in 1977.
- 1967 GMC 1500: While the other two vehicles are, as far as we can tell, in fairly original condition, this shortbed pickup truck has since received a full restoration. But there are two others just like it out there — in 1967, Elvis bought three of these GMC pickups at the same time for his Circle G Ranch in Mississippi.
