Elvis’ 1955 pink Cadillac Fleetwood 60 boasted an impressive 250 hp and 345 lb-ft of torque, but it lagged behind in fuel economy, only managing 11.9 mpg.
The singer purchased the Cadillac in 1955 and didn’t have many modifications made to it. He used the pink vehicle for touring and later gave it to his mother, Gladys. It has been on display at the Graceland Museum in Memphis for the last 30 years.
