Elvis' Mercedes for sale: EIN has a feeling of deja vu. From the eBay auction listing: This is definitely a piece of Rolling Art probably better described as Rock and Rolling Art. Elvis purchased this car and titled it in his name. One of the very few cars that were ever titled and registered in his name. This is the one with the famous “Lightning Bolt” in gold leaf with TCB logo on both front doors.
I have copies of the original bill of sale, Elvis’s registration card, the Retail Delivery Statement from Mercedes, the title and the finance contract..Yes. The “King” financed this car placing $5500.00 down payment and 36 payments of $344.44 per month. Amazing! I also have a copy of a great photo of Elvis in a tuxedo getting into the Mercedes.
The owner intends to sell this vehicle and is a serious seller. This will probably be proven to be the Best Investment of the Century for the successful bidder. Not only an investment but a joy to drive. The year before last the owner took his 102 year old mother out for the day and drove it on the Interstate. It runs better, quicker and smoother than any Rolls Royce. This vehicle will attract hordes of people making it a great instrument for promotions, advertising, public relations or fund raising.
Recently over $36,000 was spent covering the brake systems, the air suspension, a new exhaust system, the air conditioning, a new drive shaft, hoses, belts and full servicing plus a totally rebuilt steering box. It is a pleasure to drive. It shows only 59,644 miles which are believed to be correct. (News, Source: Elvis Matters/Elvis News)
