Elvis’ Pink Cadillac at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee

The King of Rock and Roll fancied fancy cars. You can admire over 20 of his former rides – including cars, motorcycles, a dune-buggy and go-cart – at the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum at Graceland. The most famous is this 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood. Elvis purchased his first pink Cadillac in 1955 at the age of 20. The car was destroyed by fire a few months later. The replacement Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 was blue. He soon commissioned a custom paint color called Elvis Rose. He then gave the now iconic Caddy to his mother Gladys. She appreciated the gesture but never drove the luxury, four-door sedan because she did not have a driver’s license. Before Elvis died, he bought around 200 Cadillacs and gifted most of them to family and friends.
