Dear Tony Trout,
We don’t authenticate items not from our own collection including the bus that is now on sale.
We do not know the current location of the bus. Elvis bought it 11/29/65 and sold it in 1968 to entertainer Herb Shriner. Mr. and Mrs. Shriner were killed in a car accident in 1970, leaving behind three children including their entertainer sons Wil Shriner and Kin Shriner (Scotty Baldwin on “General Hospital”) It was part of the probate of the Shriner
estate and then sold several times. Following a fire, the interior was redone. Later, it was loaned to Graceland for tours and remained here a number of years even though it had been redone and changed from the days of Elvis owning it.
Then when the loan was up, it was returned to the owner who has since died and what became of it after that we don’t have a record of. I had heard since that it was destroyed in another fire some time later but can’t attest to that as being fact.
