Now, we all knew that Elvis Priesley was the king of rock, but did you also know he was the king of the limos? That’s right, the Hound Dog singer actually boasted quite a fabulous collection of cars, said to have owned over 100 vehicles in his time.
But, he was particularly fond of stretched limos, many of which can be found across America on display at museums.
Just this week, it has been announced that one the legend’s motors will go up for auction in California. Presley’s 1967 Lincoln Continental Executive Limousine is expected to fetch a fair whack; mainly due to the Limo’s fascinating backstory.
The beautiful limo was actually gifted to the star and his wife, Priscilla, on their wedding day. The present came from “Colonel” Tom Parker, Presley’s manager, presented to them in the late 60’s.
But, for a limo from that era, it is rather revolutionary. Sporting a variety of modern features, Elvis’ limo has power steering, air conditioning, powered windows; the works!
What’s more is that the vehicle became to be known as Elvis’ family car, used regularly by the Rockstar and his loved ones.
And, whoever picks this car up at auction won’t only be receiving a bit of Elvis history but a rather rare, worthy number plate too. The limo will come with its original plate; “1-Elvis” which could alone be worth millions.
