This 1964 limousine is on the cover of Jim Reid's book "Fond Memories of Elvis" see cover here and here The VIN is 64S016270. Originally black as in the pictures (and verified by the body plate numbers) it has been resprayed to it's current silver colour. It is believed to have been Elvis's Las Vegas car, and there is some evidence that it belonged to Elvis, but there is no documentation to prove this without a doubt. The story goes that a funeral home purchased it via a broker from Graceland.
This has been recently confirmed by the elderly widow of the funeral director. The limo was then sold through Action Auction (now Dorfman Auction Company) to Stan Miller of Stan's Limousine Service in California. The current owner, Jeff Smith of Calistoga California, bought it from his friend Marv, and has an original letter from Dorfman Auction Company that reads "October 1, 1983. To whom it may concern: Stan Miller purchased a Cadillac limousine from Action Auction (now Dorfman Auction Company). This car, according to the previous owner had belonged to Elvis Presley. To the best of our knowledge this is true. Sincerely, Bonny Dorfman."
Jeff also has business cards from all the previous owners (except Elvis) and has talked to each of them (except Mr Miller who he has been unable to contact). However Elvis's long time right hand man Joe Esposito does not recall the car.
