Sold: Elvis' Car At The Imperial Palace

It was one of the most photographed cars at the Car Museum of the Las Vegas Imperial Palace Hotel, but now it is gone. The King's 1974 Cadillac has been sold to a collector and was taken out of the Imperial's Car Museum. This happened some time ago, but we just found out. Costing $14,409, this was Elvis's last "Vacation Car," and was kept in Denver, Colorado. Elvis would fly into Denver and drive the car to Aspen or other resorts. It has been modified for Elvis with added grille fog lamps, gold covered wheel covers, the initials "TCB" (Taking Care of Business) on the doors, and a radio and TV in the back. After Elvis's death, the car was sold to a trio of Jackson, Tenn businessmen who insured it for $1 million and took it on a nationwide tour. In April 1988 it became part of the Imperial Palace car collection in Las Vegas.
