LOS ANGELES — Kruse GWS Auctions announced that three vehicles belonging to music legend Elvis Presley will be part of its Aug. 31 Artifacts of Hollywood event in Los Angeles.
Hitting the auction block for the first time is Presley’s personal stretch limousine, a white-on-white 1973 Lincoln Continental.
“The stunning limo, personally owned and used by Elvis, was purchased after he saw the car in a movie,” a release issued by Kruse GWS stated, in part. “Most notable of the limousine is the fact that Elvis drove it many times and it was a prominent fixture at Graceland for many years.”
Also up for sale is a custom-painted 1976 Harley-Davidson FLH 1200 Electra Glide, said to be the last motorcycle Presley purchased and sold before his 1977 death. Its prior home of 30 years was the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, S.D.
Finally, one of three 1967 GMC pickups Presley purchased for use on his 163-acre Mississippi ranch — and returned to the dealer two years later — has undergone a “total restoration” and will join the other vehicles and assorted personal possessions on the auction block.
