I am now 99% certain that the car in Easy Come, Easy Go IS the same one from the BatMan TV series from the 60's. Notice in the below photo that the back seats have the decals at the top of them removed whereas they are used in the Bat-Man episode.

Here's the actual car that was used in Elvis' movie.

P.S. I started a new topic on this so it wouldn't derail David's nice thread.

Looks a lot like it. 60s Batman well before my time and I'm more Marvel than DC, so I don't know.

What a silly car. I like the racing cars of Elvis' movies a lot more. I don't have any information about that.

That sure looks like the same car-if it is it was created by George Barris who made the Batmobile, the Munstermobile, and many many other custom cars for films and TV...he also built the custom Gold Caddy that Elvis had made in the mid 60s.
