ELVIS PRESLEY'S PERSONAL LIMOUSINE

Elvis Presley’s car that is incredibly documented from new.This is definitely a piece of Rolling Art probably better described as Rock and Rolling Art. Elvis purchased this car and titled it in his name. One of the very few cars that were ever titled and registered in his name. This is the one with the famous “Lightning Bolt” in gold leaf with TCB logo on both front doors. I have copies of the original bill of sale, Elvis’s registration card, the Retail Delivery Statement from Mercedes, the title and the finance contract..Yes.The “King” financed this car placing $5500.00 down payment and 36 payments of $344.44 per month. Amazing! I also have a copy of a great photo of Elvis in a tuxedo getting into car. Elvis used this car when he was honored and received the Jaycees Outstanding Man of the Year Award. After owning it for several years he gave this car to his friend the famous Jimmy Velvet somewhere between 1976 and 1977.

I intend to sell this vehicle and have a very reasonable reserve. This will probably be proven to be the Best Investment of the Century for the successful bidder. Not only an investment but a joy to drive. I just took my 96 year old mother out for the day and drove it 90 miles an hour on the Interstate. It runs better, quicker and smoother than my Rolls Royce. This vehicle will attract hordes of people making it a great instrument for promotions, advertising, public relations or fund raising.

Recently over $36,000 was spent covering the brake systems, the air suspension, a new exhaust system, the air conditioning, a new drive shaft, hoses, belts and full servicing. It is a pleasure to drive.It shows only 59,544 miles which are believed to be correct.

The silver finish looks better than most cars under ten years old let alone one on a 33 year old car. The interior is wonderfully original with plush black leather seats that look like they are only a few years old. Even the leather door panels are terrific. These seats have not been dyed. They are great, same for the carpeting and headliner. The Zebora wood on the dash is lovely however the varnish on the wood trim door mouldings show signs of varnish discoloration from the sun. I love originality or would have spent two days to easily refinish the wood. That is your choice. I wouldn’t do it to a piece of Chippendale furniture nor would I refinish this.

Please if you are interested, you may come and inspect the car yourself before you bid. I am located near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Like any other car over 30 years old this car is being sold as is with no guarantees.

Best of luck.You will be getting a great car with a great provenance.

Note this is the silver Pullmann, the black Pullmann (which he bought 6 month's earlier) can be seen below (he also bought a red version in 1974):

Thanks for the post E-Cat... sounds pretty intresting.

Here's also a better version of the Jaycees picture, if

EPE should buy these one of a kind cars.

Along with the yellow Pantera, the Pullmann editions were unique cars..
Would make a great addition to the car museum in memphis.

Cheers, RJ

Yes there is a red version, the 'Red Baron'. Haven't seen a good quality picture to upload. Someone else perhaps...?

I think you are right Robert.

BTW: I think Elvis owned 4 instead of 3 Pullmann's (as commonly assumed).


1- there is a dark one - 6 doors no TCB logo- see Elvis pictures above
2- there is the "Red Baron'
3- there is a silver one as being offered on Ebay now - 4 doors with TCB logo on door - see pictures above
4- ...and there is the one below: 4 doors blue - no tcb logo

Though the last 2 cars (nr3+4) seem to be different, both advertise that the car was used to accept the Jaycees award. That does not seem to be correct, does it..?
Anyone with more info perhaps...?

Looking at the pics posted, I'd agree that the blue one seems to be the one used to accept the Jaycees award - by Elvis.

However, look in the background of the pic, and there seems to be a second, lighter Pullman behind the blue one. Perhaps the second car, the one for sale, was used by the guy?

Personally, i don't like the TCB logo on the door - it looks a little tacky, but each to his own, I guess!
