"While I was driving a truck, every time a big shiny car drove by it started me sort of day-dreaming. I always felt that someday, somehow, something would happen to change everything for me. I would daydream about how it would be." - Elvis Presley

1974 Cadillac Station Wagon

Elvis bought this new at Madison Cadillac on September 26th 1974, the same day he bought 4 other cars and gave them away. It is probably an American Sunroof Company conversion from a 4 door sedan and cost almost $17,500. Apparently it was sold to a dealer in Alabama less than a year later in July 1975. Next it was transferred to a few different dealers in 1977 and was subsequently sold in November 1977, just 3 months after Elvis' death for $50,000. It was then out of the public's eye until recently (2014). With only 8,000 miles, it is currently at the Volo Auto Museum in Illinois.
