The final Barrett-Jackson event of the year and what better way to kick it off than with a Cadillac? Not just any Cadillac, mind you, but the very one that Elvis and Priscilla Presley honeymooned in late in 1967.
Here is the description from the Barrett-Jackson docket:
“Elvis Presley's 1967 Cadillac Coupe De Ville has been a part of Mike L. Moon's private collection since 1979 and has been on display at the Elvis Presley Museums in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and Niagara Falls, Canada ever since.
“This red Caddy purchased by Elvis on September 15, 1967 had become widely known as ‘The Honeymoon Cadillac’ as he and Priscilla were often seen driving it around Memphis and to his Circle G ranch shortly after they were married. (EIN notes, that is odd as they were married in back in May '67!)
“Documentation includes copies of the original Bill of Sale and title as well as the original Protect-O-Plate showing the name Elvis Presley and listing the address of Graceland. Also included are newspaper clippings and a copy of the book ‘Hurry Home Elvis’ in which the Cadillac is mentioned on page 118."
The Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction takes place Sept. 25-27 in Sin City.
