Proper his condition as America’s initial rock celebrity, Elvis Presley lived big. Amongst his lots of extras, Elvis was popular for his respected new-car acquisitions. Primarily, it appears the King preferred Cadillacs as well as Lincolns– although, throughout his Military job in Europe, he got a BMW 507 roadster. Below we have something various from the Elvis Presley canon: a 1967 GMC pick-up. And also this GMC will certainly be going across the block at the GAA Standard Cars public auction on February 27.
This GMC is just one of 3 that Elvis bought from Man Caldwell Motors in Senatobia, Mississippi, virtually specifically 54 years ago: on February 7,1967 He got a red one, a blue one, as well as this eco-friendly one for usage on his Circle G Cattle Ranch in Horn Lake, Mississippi.
According to a badge on the glovebox door, this pick-up is a GMC Cheyenne Super, which seems like a fancy-pants trim degree, although the vehicle still looks quite simplistic to our eyes. The steel wheels have dog-dish hubcaps, as well as the grille as well as bumpers are repainted white instead of chrome. It’s a standard-bed half-ton pick-up as well as is powered by a six-cylinder engine with a three-on-the-tree column-shift handbook transmission.
The vehicle invested simply over a year on the cattle ranch prior to being sold. It after that experienced a collection of proprietors as well as a number of gallery jobs. Amongst the documentation consisted of with a sale is a letter from Elvis Presley Enterprises verifying that a GMC pick-up with this VIN number was acquired brand-new by Elvis.
It has actually currently been brought back, so there should not be an entire lotta shakin’ taking place. The vehicle has actually been painted eco-friendly, although the side mirrors are various than what’s displayed in a classic image, as well as the chrome trim along the sides is missing out on. Much more significantly, we wish to see the “Circle G Cattle ranch” logo design it as soon as endured its doors be included.
No pre-sale price quote is offered. The last hammer rate for this GMC will certainly depend upon the level to which prospective buyers are all shocked at the possibility of having among the extra uncommon Elvis Presley automobiles.
