At first I was thinking more like 1960 but when I got to study his hair and sideburns closer and going thru my booktext for 1957-58 I changed my mind.

Elvis had a haircut shortly before he went into the army and his sideburns and hair looks much like in this pic. On March 21 he presented Anita Wood with a Ford as a going-away present.

Could be that this pic is from that day.

Two questions - Is the 'Plymouth' a car from the FORD company!? The reason I say it, is Elvis and Anita are clearly shown (in the #2 image) walking away from a Plymouth sign! Also is that the 'EP' logo printed on the left hand side of his shirt (partly visible underneath his jacket)!?

Funky, I can't answer your first question. I was also wondering if the Plymouth is a Ford company car.

However, the answer to your second question is a YES. That is the shirt with the EP initials. Elvis used this shirt from around August 1957 and then we see him wearing it again in 1960 when he broke his little finger in October.

The Freeman/Hazen book "Memphis Elvis Style," indicates that Elvis and Anita are leaving a Union Avenue Plymouth dealer, but didn't date the photo. It looks like Elvis might be wearing the white shirt with the script "EP" on the left breast, the shirt which he was wearing at the time of his football injury to his left pinky finger.
