There is also an interesting back story to this car. This historical account has been passed from the second owner, as been consistent over the years, nd has remained with the car today. Fans know that Elvis Presley loved Cadillacs, nd he really loved flashy Cadillacs. He also made sure they were modified to his taste. Everyone has heard the true story of Elvis and June Juanico flying to a Houston, X. Cadillac dealer June 12, 956, and buying a white 1956 Eldorado Biarritz convertible with black interior. He immediately turned it over to his customizer, immy Sanders, f Memphis. He squashed a handful of grapes on the fender and told Jimmy that was the color he wanted. Hence, is purple convertible came to be. He also changed the interior to white roll and pleated leather.
The coupe in this ad, ccording to verbal history, as purchased and given by Presley to his manager, olonel Tom Parker. The car was an unimpressive green and white with green and white interior. Presley bought the car, hen stipulated that it be repainted red and white and a red and white interior installed.
