There are thousands of websites on the internet about Elvis and about Cadillacs, but only one about Elvis's Cadillacs. You've just found it! In the fifties, few things symbolised success and the American dream more than a magnificent automobile. Elvis Presley's affinity for Cadillacs was real. He was not only the King of Rock 'n Roll, he was also the King of Cadillac buyers, purchasing at least a hundred during his life. Here is some information on a few of them.Welcome
In early March 1955 Elvis had bought his first Cadillac. It was a pink and white 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 60 Special Sedan (similar to the black one pictured) and provided transportation for Elvis and the Blue Moon Boys for about three months. The car went up in smoke when a brake lining caught fire, near Fulton on the road between
Hope and Texarkana, Ark. on 5th June 1955. See picture here.
