A car fit for a king — or the King of Rock'n'Roll's doctor. The finest American car in the '70s was the Stutz Blackhawk, a coachbuilt ultra-luxury machine with Italian bodywork. The car rode on a Pontiac Grand Prix chassis with a 425 horsepower, 455 cubic-inch Pontiac V8. At over 19 feet long and 5,000 pounds, it wasn't burning up the track — it was American luxury at its finest. Elvis Presley bought this Blackhawk in 1971. Elvis owned the car for several years before gifting it to his physician Elias Ghanem, mounting a plaque on the dash that reads "Elias Ghanem A True Friend Elvis Presley". The car is remarkably original throughout, with the wood-lined dash dazzling under thick lacquer. The car goes to auction November 10-12 at Mecum's Las Vegas event.
Elvis' museum and home in Memphis used to be worth the visit. Most of it has been sold off. Sad. The same thing happened to home town celeb Roy Roger's museum. It's now a Honda dealer and Trigger is long gone.
