Elvis' Cadillac Estate Wagon is up for auction and stands at only $30,000. It is cream with a brown vinyl top, light leather interior and has a small gold plaque on the passenger side door engraved with 'TCB'. Elvis owned it from 1972 until his death.
The car has the original Tennessee title, an insurance document signed by Elvis and a letter from Jack Soden President of EPE describing a colourful story about the history of the car. Apparently Col Parker's widow said that Elvis owned the car and gave it as a gift to Colonel Parker. The car was in Las Vegas and Elvis would "borrow" the car for trips to Los Angeles and his home in Palm Springs. Col Parker got tired of tracking the car down, so he told Elvis to take the car back.
After Elvis' final Vegas season in December 1976 the car was sent back to Graceland where it was used to haul around Elvis and his friends. After his death the car was relegated to the staff at Graceland to run errands. Copies of all the original 1999 Guernsey Auction documents and appraisal comes with the car. Unlike other cars Elvis owned this one has never been titled to anyone but Elvis (when alive) and Elvis Enterprises (after he died). So far the auction has had only 1 bid for US$30,000. The reserve has not been met. Item number: 280068090720 and there is one day to go for bidding.
