Elvis Presley’s Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham on the Auction Block

Elvis Presley’s Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham on the Auction Block

Published: January 13, 2022 | By: American Luxury Staff

If Cadillac is the king of American cars, then this example on the auction block currently is the King’s king, which would make it an example of compound pop-cultural royalty. With just 1,725 miles.

A rock-and-roll cream puff — and in custard yellow, no less — the Fleetwood Brougham rolled out of the rust belt and into a Memphis dealership in 1975. Elvis purchased it in the late summer, after the successful tour earlier that year. The car is being sold with full documentation from the sale; Elvis shook loose of $12,512 for the low rider.

The car packs a 500 cubic inch v8 engine, and it’s outfitted with a sunroof, which in 1975 was something of a treat on a passenger car. Its more purple-robed accoutrements include, to quote the auction information, five Vogue tires and a bonnet mounted ‘Goddess’ . The ‘Goddess’ is the hood ornament, which looks to have been borrowed from a Cadillac of an earlier era.

The car is currently located in Sweden; British outfit Car & Classic is handling the auction, which concludes on January 15th, 2022.
