Elvis Presley's 1977 Cadillac Seville Isn't All That
Elvis Presley was a larger than life character, what with all those sequins and capes and the kung-fu moves he liked to bust out on stage. You'd expect that his Cadillac would be equally impressive, but, it's kind of underwhelming. The car is currently on display at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu in the UK where one Lady Fiona Montagu, wife of the museum's founder, posed with the car on its arrival. She is a huge Elvis fan and even put on a fancy spangled Elvis outfit that outshines the actual car. RELATED: See Elvis's 1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V Limousine
The 1977 Cadillac Seville V8 Automatic was purchased by Elvis in 1976 as his personal car and has power windows and mirrors, as well as wood grain interior accents. He picked out the burgundy and silver color scheme himself and it's still in its original condition as it was when he was behind the wheel. It's even got the CB radio he had installed so he could communicate with the kitchen at Graceland, and also to let them know to open the gates.

The car was auctioned off for $101,500 to a private collector back in 1994 and came up for auction again this past August during Elvis Week at Graceland. The owner at this point was Greg Page of The Wiggles who is a huge Elvis fan with a vast collection. The car fetched $81,250 and was purchased by Steve Horn as a gift for his wife. Horn and his wife have loaned Elvis's Cadillac to the museum because they wanted to share a little piece of Elvis history with his fans in the UK.
