Description
Lot #329 - This car has 67,000 original miles and was purchased from Jimmy Velvet, of the Elvis Presley Museum, in 1982. At that time, it had just 21,000 miles on it. It was then brought to Arizona from Tennessee where it has remained until now. It includes the service history and records on the car starting in 1982. This rust-free original car is ready to drive anywhere and has been driven, showed and enjoyed by the seller for the last 34 years. It was driven from 1982 to 2008 when it was placed in storage and only driven occasionally for shows and special events. 1976 was a special year for the Eldorado convertible because Cadillac said it would the year for a convertible. That sent these cars into immediate "collector car status" with people buying and saving them. It would be many years before Cadillac introduced the Eldorado convertible again. Here is a piece of the 1970s at its finest, when Cadillac was at the top of the car charts. This car has a trunk-full of Elvis photos that come with the car. The photos were not commercially taken, but were taken by someone inside his entourage and were acquired with the car.
