SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — A limousine built for Elvis Presley will be auctioned off at the annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction this month. The limousine, a 1960 Lincoln Mark V, could be one of the top five cars sold in a year when several vehicles have the potential to sell for multimillion-dollar prices, said Craig Jackson, president and CEO of the Scottsdale-based Barrett-Jackson Auction Co.

The vehicle was customized by the same company that built the limousine President Kennedy was assassinated in. The Elvis limo has only 33,000 miles on the odometer, and there are documents and a photograph that traces it from construction until it was delivered to “The King.” Elvis purchased the car at the height of his career and used it regularly in both Hollywood and Memphis, said Steve Davis, executive vice president of Barrett-Jackson.

"With the exception of the legendary pink Cadillac Elvis gave his mother, this is as good as it gets," Davis said.
