1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham

This 1975 Fleetwood Brougham was a gift to the infamous Dr Nick. It has been shown through Europe, this photo being taken in Sweden in 1989

Before being displayed around Europe, the 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham went through a major restoration in Switzerland.

In 2012, the Elvis Museum arrived to Split, Croacia. According to CarsGuru apparently bystanders helped to maneuver the Cadillac to the museum.

1975 Cadillac Seville

Elvis purchased this 1975 Cadillac Seville for Colonel Parker at Jack Kent Cadillac in Denver. It is blue with a blue interior and has a Tennessee license plate that reads "Admiral." It was auctioned by Guernseys October 7th-8th 1999 at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas for $93,750.

In August 1975 Elvis gave his friend Marty Lacker a burnt orange coloured 1976 Cadillac. One time, Joe Esposito was given a white on white Eldorado convertible, and on another occasion a brand new Seville.

When Elvis's Dad Vernon separated from his second wife Dee in 1975, she received a baby blue Cadillac Eldorado convertible with white upholstery from her estranged husband.

1975 Cadillac Eldorado

One of Elvis's back up vocalists, Myrna Smith of the Sweet Inspirations was presented with a brand new Glacial Blue 1975 Cadillac Eldorado and bore the plates LDY BLU (Lady Blue). This car was bought from Myrna by Peter Lembo of Boston, Massachusetts, who had it shipped from California to Boston. When registered in Massachusetts it bore the plates ELVIS 9. Peter later sold it to Fred Bramante of Durham, NH in 1991 for about $10,000 (the same amount the King paid when new). It was restored over a 2 and a half year period up to July 2001 by the inmates of the New Hampshire State Prison. The car resided inside the theatre at Canobie Lake Park in New Hampshire (part of the Matt Lewis Tribute Show).

In January of 2017, Dusty Old Cars of New Hampshire auctioned Mirna's old Cadillac on eBay. The starting bid was $139,999 and the mileage was only 8,195 miles. Unfortunately, the car is in rough shape and needs a good restoration. Besides that, it was interesting to learn the VIN number: 6L47S50285831 and some other technical information.
