A piece of rock and roll history is up for grabs as Elvis Presley’s old car is put up for sale, along with a collection of memorabilia from the King of Rock and Roll. The 1977 white Lincoln Continental Mark V, a gift from Elvis to his fiancée Ginger Alden, is a highlight of the collection.

This vintage automobile, which can reach speeds of up to 116mph, has undergone a complete restoration. It was previously showcased at the Elvis Presley Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. The car features a full-grain white leather interior, a red dashboard, and carpeting, and includes luxury additions such as a Cartier clock and high-gloss woodgrain insert interior.
