The Graceland archivist said: “Elvis was driving a Lincoln on tour in Miami when the fans found him at the hotel.

“And they decided they were going to leave messages on his car, which included everything from using lipstick to pens, to whatever they could find to scratch messages in.

“So Elvis wakes up the next day, goes out to the car and obviously cannot drive it.

“It’s completely covered in love notes and graffiti from the fans.”

Angie continued: “So he goes to the closest dealership, which happened to be a Mercury dealership, where they were actually selling Continentals.

“Now this was before Lincoln owned the Continental brand.

“So Elvis traded in that car that had all of the messages on it to the dealership for this Continental Mark II. At the time this was one of the most expensive cars that you could buy.

“It actually cost more than a Rolls Royce, [which were] averag[ing] at about $6000.”
