Car description

[zipedit] 1972 Cadillac DeVille Station Wagon ~Owned By Elvis Presley~ VIN #: 6949R2Q163176 Own a piece of Rock ’n Roll history with this one of a kind collector! You’re probably familiar with Elvis Presley’s iconic pink Fleetwood and infamous gold El Dorado which inspired Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. But did you know that his favorite car was a little more down to earth. and arguably more unique by virtue of its details and history? By the summer of 1977. a 42-year-old Elvis Presley had purchased hundreds of Cadillac’s dubbing the King of Rock as also the King of Cadillacs. He considered them to be the ultimate symbol of American style and luxury. And despite owning a fleet of fancy and expensive vehicles. in the last years of Elvis’ life. his go-to automobile was a 1972 Custom Cadillac Sedan DeVille Station Wagon. That's right! Cadillac custom made only two of these station wagons. the other which they gave to Dean Martin which has since disappeared. This station wagon is one of the rarest cars on earth. It has 24kt gold spokes. 24kt gold Cadillac badge. and probably more importantly it had a lot of room for Elvis’ friends and luggage to fit comfortably. The 37-year-old Elvis originally purchased this Station Wagon as a gift for his manager Colonel Parker. but drove it himself so frequently from his home in Beverly Hills to his sold out shows in Vegas that Parker surrendered it back to Elvis who gladly took it back. After wrapping up his show in Vegas. Elvis packed up his home in California and drove cross-country to his mansion in Graceland in this station wagon – this would be his last road trip – a pastime which was known to be his favorite. Elvis drove this car until he died only 4 months later at 42. Since then. Elvis’ Cadillac station wagon could be viewed in the Elvis Presley Museum (the car is still titled to the Elvis Presley Museum) until now as it has been moved back to its original home – sunny Southern California. This car is truly one of a kind. If you're interested. or have further questions about this extremely special car. please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks. and good luck!
