The 1955 Cadillac Series 75 Fleetwood limousine that Elvis Presley used to transport his band to shows all over the Southern United States went up for auction at Bonham's Classic California sale yesterday. The new owner paid 172,000 $US for the car, including the Buyer's Premium. Pre sale estimates had the Fleetwood selling somewhere between $100,000 and $150,000.
From the catalogue: This well documented car was purchased by the King in January of 1956 and immediately repainted Black. He may have died a very rich man, but in '56 Elvis still needed his father to co-sign on the car.
Unlike many older Cadillacs that head to auction with questionable Elvis ties, this Limo is a well documented car with clear proof it was owned by Presley.
