I've always loved Elvis singin, specially his gospel songs. But anyway; I found this picture sometime back. http://www.elvispresleymusic.com.au/pictures/...
That's one that disappeared from circulation long ago. Fraid that very car has been sitting on our property deteriorating for the last 30 years or so. Belongs to a neighbor of ours. He keeps saying he's going to restore it and offer it for sale, but never gets around to it.

He bought it sometime in the early 80's with the rumor that it was the one Elvis bought. Just a rumor at that time. He had tried to trace the ownership but hit a dead end because the warehouse that contained the old dealer records had burned down. My brother finally tried calling graceland once and got Elvis' daughter. She took a look in the files and found insurance papers with matching serial number. So it is indeed the right car. But that's the only proof that exists as far as I know.------RT

While the rest of your story may be true, this part is total BS:

If your brother called Graceland, he would not have been speaking with Lisa Marie Presley. As IF she'd take a cal like that.

And it is highly unlikely whoever he spoke to happened to have the insurance details for the car so easily to hand, nor would they have confirmed anything like that over the phone.

Well, I thought it was his daughter he was talking to, but if it wasn't at least it was somebody at the place. And they did look in the files and confirm that there was an insurance record with serial number that matched the car. I do know that much is valid. Later I realized we should have been recording the call, but we didn't have call recording ability. When my neighbor bought it he was told it was the one Elvis had bought new, and that's all we had to go on. And that's all we've been able to come up with for confirmation of it.
