Here’s a 1963 4-door Lincoln Continental convertible that the seller claims was once own by Elvis Presley. Now, as you probably know, the King – befitting his position and wealth – owned a lot of cars. He was also not above trashing them, having once shot up his Pantera when it left him stranded. It’s unlikely however that he would have let any of his cars reach this one’s level of decrepitude. I mean, it looks to be in such rough shape that any part that Elvis might have touched will probably need to be replaced, or at the very least be attended to by a Haz-Mat team. Here’s the copy from the ad:
Lincoln Continental 1963 convertible 4 door. owned by ELVIS, especially built for “The King”, how RARE! The LCOC has documented this vehicle’s previous original owner, this is an original car that needs restoration and detail work. The museum that this rare car came from was asking five times this amount for it. The identical car to this one has been owned by two former U.S. Presidents and it’s now shown in a southern museum. This is your family heirloom. priceless. $66,000
Now the pics in the ad have a time stamp almost a decade ago. That could indicate one of two things; either this car has been in this condition for that long, and has been declining like the King did in the seventies, or the seller doesn’t know how to set up his camera. Either way, the asking price is $66,000, which is a lot of do-rey-me for an old Lincoln without such provenance. This one supposedly is documented by the Lincoln Continental Owner’s Club, and if it proves to actually be an Elvis-owned car, that will of course add to its value. But $66,000? What do you think?
