If you’re going to dress up as Elvis for Halloween, you should know a little about his personal cars

Elvis Presley’s 1971 Mercedes 280SL

Elvis Mercedes 280SL

Elvis bought this 1971 Mercedes 280SL roadster for Priscilla around Christmas 1970. Reportedly she claims it has always been her favorite car. It’s not hard to imagine he saw a tiny bit of the ’58 BMW 507 convertible he had leased when stationed in Germany.

    As an insurance adjuster in Southern California in 1979, I handled a claim on this vehicle. It was apparently stolen, then recovered with moderate damage – wheels/tires, stereo, some trim damage, etc. Never did talk to Mrs. Presley, though.
