"While I was driving a truck, every time a big shiny car drove by it started me sort of day-dreaming. I always felt that someday, somehow, something would happen to change everything for me. I would daydream about how it would be." - Elvis Presley

1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special Sedan

In early March 1955 Elvis had bought his first Cadillac. It was a pink and white 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special Sedan (similar to the black one pictured) and provided transportation for Elvis and the Blue Moon Boys for about three months. [Read More]

1954 Convertible

Elvis purchased a yellow 1954 Cadillac convertible around August or September 1955. A Continental kit was added sometime before March 1956. Click here to see a (b&w) pic of Linda Wheeler and Kay Wheeler (the first Elvis Presley Fan Club President in the world) on the back of the 1954 convertible, taken in Fort Worth Texas in 1956.

1955 Fleetwood 60 Special

Elvis's love affair with this 1955 Cadillac was well documented and his reputation for collecting cars was well deserved. Though he owned and gave away many different kinds of cars to friends and total strangers, this 1955 pink and white Cadillac Fleetwood (originally blue in colour with a black roof) is said to have been his favourite and the one car he never sold or gave away.

1955 Series 75 Fleetwood Limousine

Elvis bought the 1955 Fleetwood Limousine in the background of this picture just before going on a tour in it in March 1956. This picture was taken (probably) in May of 1956 at the house on Audubon Drive. They had obviously either just returned from a tour or were leaving on tour that day, since the instruments were stowed on the roof rack. [Read More]

1956 Cadillac Eldorado

Elvis and June Juanico flew to Houston to purchase this car on June 12, 1956 at a cost of $10,000. Originally white with a black interior, Elvis squashed a handful of grapes on the fender and told the customiser, Jimmy Sanders of Memphis (who also customised the pink '55 Fleetwood), that was the colour he wanted.

1957 Cadillac Eldorado Seville

This 1957 Eldorado Seville is believed to have been purchased by Elvis late in 1956 while living at his Audubon Drive home. [Read More]

1957 Cadillac Seville

This 1957 Eldorado Seville with the chopped top was NOT one of Elvis's Cadillacs, but has been included here for informational purposes, as it is probably one of America's most photographed cars and people get their pictures taken in front of it all day long. [Read More]

1957 Cadillac Limousine

During 1957 Elvis owned a 1957 Cadillac Limousine. I have heard from someone who in 1974 got to sit in the actual car. His old high school friend had acquired it from his Aunt who used to work for Elvis, and recalls that it had goat skin carpeting and a telephone in the back seat. [Read More]

1958 Cadillac Limousine

Elvis owned a black 1958 Cadillac Limousine (similar to the black one pictured) around 1958/1959. I have had emails from a couple of different people who think they may know of a 1958 Cadillac believed to be once owned by Elvis according to "local legend." [Read More]

1959 Cadillac

I have been asked many times if Elvis ever had a big-finned 1959 Cadillac, the model that is so collectible today. As far as I can tell, no he did not, probably because in 1959 he was stationed with the US Army in Germany. [Read More]
