Nice new one. Tough to say. It's Linda in the front seat. Based on what Elvis looks like I'd guess '75 or '76.

Is that Esposito behind Elvis in the patched shirt? I am sure I have seen that shirt in other pics. And the other passenger looks to be suited and bearded: perhaps its related to the time of the Presley Centre Courts fiasco.

It's probably circa 1975-76, but the key to getting a more accurate date is to identify the vehicle.

bripet56 is very good at this. Hey, Brian, chime in!

The car appears to be a Lincoln Mark IV, judging from the side mirror and the general timeframe. The Mark V did not come out until 1977. Just my $0.02 worth...

Also it looks like Elvis is wearing his '77 DEA jogging suit.

But it´s Linda who is sitting beside, so it´s not 1977. He doesn´t look that bad. May it be 1975?

Looks to be from the same day Elvis went car shopping in a jumpsuit at IIRC Madison cadillac.

Looks like Billy sitting behind him.

I also thought that he might be wearing the White Eagle jumpsuit.

Yeah and Linda is wearing the same dress and Billy the same shirt.

Given FrankieRider2's observation, we may now identify the car:


1976-lincoln-mark-iv-emilio-pucci-designer-edition_100178226_m.jpg
1976 Lincoln Mark IV Emilio Pucci Designer Edition
http://www.thecarconnection.com/image/100178226_1976-lincoln-mark-iv-emilio-pucci-designer-edition


Since new 1976 vehicles first became available in late 1975, perhaps we can assume this shot is circa late 1975-early 1976, and probably in Memphis.

Whoo!

This is June 1, 1975! He's in his Silver Pheonix Suit here. Just like the other pic we have of him from that day.

It's unclear what he has on in the OP's photo, but on 6-01-1975 Elvis was busy doing an afternoon show (AS) and an evening show (ES) in Huntsville, AL.
