The last Cadillac purchased by Elvis for his personal use — and the last Cadillac known to have been driven by the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll — will be sold at the first-ever “Auction at Graceland” on Aug. 14. That Cadillac is a maroon-and-silver 1976 Seville with wire wheels, a painted roof (slick top) and an aftermarket grille.

Cadillac and Elvis fans, fear not (or want not) — the sale will not include items in the Graceland Collection, which continues to be the property of Lisa Marie Presley and contains Elvis’ famous 1955 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special and 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz.

The momentous auction will be held right at Graceland, America’s second-most famous residence, and feature one of the world’s most acclaimed Elvis Presley memorabilia collections.

The Cadillac Seville is just one of many select pieces in this auction, all of which have been authenticated and certified by the Graceland archivists. Other notable pieces include a Martin D-28 and Elvis’ copy of the original script for his first film, “Love Me Tender.”

LiveAuctioneers will provide the Internet live-bidding services for the sale. The online catalog will be available to view on Aug. 1 at www.LiveAuctioneers.com. The official print catalog is now available for ordering at Graceland.com/auction .
