This 1960 Coupe de Ville registered DFO 301 was offered, complete with items of Presley memorabilia, in H&H Auction’s sale at Buxton, Derbyshire, England on September 12/13 2006. It was formerly owned by
the Yorkshire Car Collection which was first started by enthusiast Peter Black in Keighley.
The description of the vehicle was:
Finished in white with a salmon pink roof and pink / white upholstery, this particular left-hand drive example is described by the vendor as being in "good" condition with regard to its engine, automatic gearbox, interior trim, chassis, bodywork, paintwork and wheels / tyres. Though, he states that its electrical equipment "needs some work". Formerly the property of rock 'n' roll icon Elvis Presley (or so an accompanying State of California Title Document would imply), 'DFO 302' has been in the current ownership since 2002. Tracked down via an article in 'The Sun' newspaper, it is believed to retain its original interior and to have covered just 76,099 miles from new. Said to drive well aside from the wiring maladies, it is offered for sale with sundry paperwork and some Elvis memorabilia. A stunning two-door pillarless coupe from Cadillac's (and Elvis's) golden era, this 1960 Coupe de Ville is not to be missed.
Sale price was 21,000 pounds (AU$52,681, US$39,235). I have doubts that this vehicle is a genuine EP owned vehicle. Firstly as it appears to be badged as the base series 62 model, not the more upmarket Coupe de Ville, also the documentation sounds rather vague.
