COMES WITH ANIMATRONIC ELVIS WHO TELLS THE STORY OF THIS AWESOME CAR!
The story behind this car is well known and it has an incredible history. Elvis Presley spotted this Topaz Gold Firemist beauty parked outside a Memphis Cadillac dealer showroom on December 28, 1967 and decided on the spot that he had to have it. He immediately made it his daily transportation and reportedly used the car for approximately thirteen-months. At one point the car would not start and Elvis furthered his reputation for shooting displeasing inanimate objects by deploying his side-arm and plugging the car in the right front fender. The bullet hole still remains there today. Elvis drove the car until February 1969. A short time afterwards, Elvis gave the Cadillac to the stepfather of his wife, Priscilla Presley, as a gift. It saw very little use until being purchased by a Mr. Johnny Mac who imported it to Australia and used it for promotional purposes. It was then purchased by four Australian business men in 1987 who put the car on display as part of an Elvis Presley Exhibition, together with records and other memorabilia, near Perth, Australia. In 1994 the entire exhibition was sold to the Memphis Rock Cafe in Queensland, Australia where the car was on display in an air conditioned glass enclosure until late 1998. In March of 1999 the car was sold in Melbourne, Australia. The car then came back to the U.S. where it has remained since then. We are very pleased to be able to offer this incredible piece of history to the most discriminating collector, or Elvis super fan.
