Elvis 1962 Ford Thunderbird

Knowing Elvis’s penchant for cars and hearing comments that “this is a car Elvis might buy”, salesman Ernie Barrasso visited Graceland on a Sunday and dropped off a brochure (shown here). The next day, Elvis drove to the Ford dealership in one of his Cadillacs and bought the T-Bird on the spot, waiting for it to be prepped so he could drive it home. He later sent someone down to pick up his Cadillac.

    This pic is from 1957. Elvis did not have sideburns from 1958-1967. He bought Graceland in 57 so it cant be earlier, and the sideburns tell me its before 1958. So def. 1957
