Name of Lot: Elvis Presley Owned Stutz Photographs
Brief Description: Elvis Presley personal Stutz Motorcar photos from his personal Graceland office. Elvis’s fascination with automobiles peaked when it came to Stutz’s, of which he owned four and possibly a fifth one, during the 1970’s. These photos were sent to Elvis by a dealer, upon request. When they arrived at the Graceland office, Patsy Presley notified Elvis. Patsy stated Elvis couldn’t get to the office quick enough to get the photos. She said he promptly returned to his bedroom with the photos in hand. Obviously, these pictures influenced his taste in automobiles and his desire to own multiple Stutz’s. After Elvis passed, these photos were gathered with other personal possessions by Patsy upon Vernon’s request. These were sold to our consignor, by Patsy approximately 40 years ago. Ideal for framing with a plaque of the stated story.
