1960 Lincoln Limo - Elvis Presley
Engine Size: 430
Elvis Presley’s 1960 Mark V Limousine This automobile was special ordered by Elvis in the summer of 1959 while in the Army and stationed in Germany. The Lincoln division of Ford Motor Company sent one of the very first 1960 Lincolns, Serial #32, to Hess and Eisenhardt to be customized for Elvis. They were the world famous company who built the Lincoln X-100 limousine which Kennedy was assassinated in. This auto has only 33,000 actual miles and is equipped with every available option including rear power privacy glass, and two separate units for front and rear air-conditioning. Included with this sale is the complete documentation history starting with the manufacturer’s certificate of origin from Ford Motor Company to Schilling Motors (the Lincoln dealer in Memphis, TN), the power of attorney signed by Elvis authorizing the purchase of the car while he was in service, the bill of sale from Schilling motors to Elvis, the application of title in Elvis’ name, the transfer of ownership after 5 years to Alan Fortas who was a close friend of Elvis’ and an original member of the Memphis Mafia, and the Memphis, TN title to the car which has been in the same owner’s name for nearly 40 years. All this in addition to a photo taken at Graceland of Elvis with the car the day he returned home from service, as well as several other photos of the car while owned by the "King of Rock and Roll". This was known as one of Elvis’ favorite automobiles and he was often seen driving the car in Memphis as well as in California while pursuing his movie career. He owned this car at the peak of his career and this is the first time it has ever been advertised for sale. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of only a few early autos belonging to the “Entertainer of the Century”. This will be a centerpiece of any major collection or museum.
