Options Include: AIR CONDITIONINGPOWER STEERINGPOWER BRAKESPOWER WINDOWSBECKER EUROPA RADIO (WORKING CONDITION!) Daniel Schmitt & Co. presents: 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL - Coming up for public sale for the first time in over a decade. is the chance to own one of “The King's” personal automobiles that spent time parked in front of Graceland (as seen in the image above). This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL was purchased new in 1970 in Memphis. Tennessee by Elvis Presley. The “King” of Rock'n'Roll was no stranger to high-end cars; he owned numerous Cadillacs. BMWs. Rolls-Royces. Lincolns. Ferraris. and a few Mercedes.



The 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL for sale here is a top-of-the-line Sedan. which Elvis also purchased from Robertson's Mercedes-Benz and signed for on December 21. 1970. The car left the factory with code 542 (Dark Red) paint. but that color wasn't up to the “King's” standards. He soon had it repainted in Alpha Crystal Blue Metallic. a color suspiciously similar to that of his Powder Blue 1970 Mercedes-Benz 600 Limo. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is one of very few cars that Elvis was seen in on a regular basis driving around Memphis.

After Elvis' death in 1977. his 280SEL was put on display at a prominent museum where it remained until earlier this year. The vehicle is still equipped with its factory options including air conditioning. power windows. power steering. power brakes. and a Becker Europa radio that is still in working condition. This 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is well documented and comes with copies of the title registration. the original title (both of which bear Elvis' signature). a copy of the original Bill of Sale. as well as a photo of the vehicle parked in front of Graceland.
Featured recently in UK's Express and eBay Motors Blog. Elvis Presley's Mercedes-Benz 280SEL is enjoying its share of popularity - "Elvis had a penchant for cars. and while it would be a stretch to call him a driving enthusiast. he definitely collected luxury models like most other people would stack up snow globes or Franklin Mint die-casts. This 1971 280SEL was purchased by Elvis at the tail end of 1970. a period which coincided with the six-cylinder version of the car starting to phase out of Mercedes-Benz dealerships in favor of the upcoming W116 redesign. The 280SEL joined Presley's fleet of Cadillacs. Ferraris. and Rolls-Royces. but perhaps most importantly for Elvis fanatics. it was a car that The King was often seen driving around himself. rather than being chauffeured in.
