1. 1968 Cadillac El Dorado Coupe Owned by Elvis Presley

In late December 1967 Elvis traded in a 1966 Olds Tornado Coupe and  purchased this Cadillac El Dorado in Memphis. He drove it on personal business a little more than a year before it refused to start. At this point a frustrated Elvis pulled out his sidearm and fired a shot into its right front fender. Fortunately the shot was not fatal and Presley, thrilled with the recent birth of his daughter Lisa Marie, gave the Cadillac to Priscilla Presley’s stepfather.  The car features Elvis’s Own “TCB” (Takin’ Care of Business) lightning bolt decals on each door.
 
Provenance: Elvis Presley, Colonel Beaulieu (Priscilla Presley’s father), Johnny Mac of Adelaide, Australia (via Jimmy Velvet, Hawaii), Hal Wagner (sports memorabilia dealer, Overland Park, KS).
