Elvis Presley’s 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood Limo Up for Auction


Who knows, maybe there’ll be a pair of blue suede shoes hidden in the trunk.
Even in his fledgling career The King had a taste for the finer things in life and a penchant for Cadillacs, to the extent that marrying the king of rock n' roll with the standard of the world has become somewhat of a cliché. However, this well-documented black Series 75 Fleetwood eight-passenger sedan is being auctioned by Bonhams so the connection is pretty much indisputable, especially as Presley's signature is on the original owner's manual.
Wait? What?! So Lexus isn't Doing an LFA Successor... Zenos E10 S is a 250 HP Track Toy Could the Volvo XC90 Work as a Pickup?
Repainted black having originally been light blue, the car, bought by Presley and co-signed by his father Vernon, was used to transport Elvis and his band to gigs across the Southern United States before making its way to the Elvis Presley Museum and later the Elvis-A-Rama Museum in Las Vegas. Bonhams estimate it will be sold for between $100,000 and $150,000 when it goes up for auction in California on 12 November.
