I'm very seldom right about these rare candids, but I'll give it a shot. Graceland, 1973.

I'll take a shot and say 1973, also.....


What do I win? :P

The first pic is a pic from Elvis buying his 2nd Stutz (1972 model) in April '73.

The second pic is from another date while leaving graceland.
It's probably taken between July and December '73.

Here some other pictures:

Anyone know what became of this vehicle?

Didn't he gave the white Stutz away to dr. Elias Ghanem?And on the picture where you can see the Stutz in front of Graceland you can also see another Stutz with the split window. That was the first model bought in 1971.

The car he gave Dr. Ghanem wasn't this one, but a white 1971 convertabele model instead.

This picture is from an Canadian Elvis Magazine from 1977:

This picture has always been dated as April 1973, but that is impossible because Elvis is wearing the gold bolo chain he received as a present from the Hilton on September 1st, 1973. So this must be a post September 1973 picture.

I believe you are right Leroy. Also, looking at Elvis appearance (face, body, hair), the pic looks like it's been taken around his divorce (October 9th 1973).

So I suggest that this pic is from October then. Leaves the question what Jules Meyer, the Stutz sales-man, is doing in the picture when Elvis purchaged the car in April (see 1st pic).

Could it be possible Elvis is not buying this car for himself but as a present to someone else? Also the license plate on this car spells STUTZ 3 while the licence plate on Elvis' white Stutz spell just STUTZ.

Superb pictures! Here's two from 1971.
The first picture can be found from Paul's Elvis Page. I've also added another photo from the same occasion.

Here's one more 'alternate' picture from the same date as the ones on the post above.

I think this is also a rather cool candid shot.
April 12, 1976.

J, thank you ever so much for such an awesome candid! I just love looking at a new unseen (by me) candid :lol: !

The last photo, from ' 76, was taken outside a pet store in Memphis, where Elvis purchased several animals. I know I have the name of the store somewhere, but can't seem to find it. Anyone ?

That last photo is from in front of Kilgore's Pet Shop at Southland Mall in Memphis on April 12, 1976 at 5:35 p.m. Elvis was shot by Ruth Auchter Daniel when he was leaving the pet shop. I have another one taken inside her car which was just ahead of Elvis' Stutz. Elvis can be seen in the drivers seat in his car.

Sorry guys, no new scanner yet so can't scan it.

Sincerely

I recall a shot (Funky, you'll have it) of EP & Linda getting back into the car after the pet store ncident, I think they're loading the boot/trunk and EP is waiving.
