Just what the doctor ordered: Elvis Presley’s Cadillac heads to auction
Bought new by Elvis who eventually donated it to his doctor, and it's not pink..
Put yourself behind the wheel of The King's 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham as one of Elvis' Cadillacs is going under the online hammer.
Fans of The King, who would have been celebrating his birthday this Saturday, can’t help falling in love with the rock star’s 8.2 litre Cadillac
Bought new by Presley himself from Madison Cadillac Inc, as all the paperwork attests, will reassure any suspicious minds. It retains the options such as the sunroof and bonnet-mounted ‘Goddess’ and the star paid $12,512. Cadillacs bought by The King are said to number more than 200 with Elvis keeping them for short time or just giving them to family and friends. This particular car was given to Elvis’s doctor in 1976, two years after he bought it. Dr G. Nichopoulos used the car for the following ten years, when the current owner bought it before selling it in 1990 and then buying it for a second time. Now in Sweden, the owner set to go go separate ways with the car.
Fit for a King...
As well as the car, the buyer will receive pics of the car in period as well as a framed 14k gold key for the car. “You don’t purchase this car because it’s the ultimate example of American automotive greatness in the Seventies,” says Car & Classic editor Chris Pollitt. “You are buying a piece of original history, a period chariot belonging to one of the most famous showmen in the world. Shame it’s not pink.”
