Whoa! It’s as big as Elvis!

Four months of repeatedly viewing a handful of digital images from the seller was my only perspective. Standing alongside the vintage behemoth brought his stage presence into reality. In a word, ginormous.

Complete gutting of the interior was never a question, but no amount of inspection short of tearing off the skins could reveal the mess underneath. Frankly, he towed back to Tennessee like a dream, straight as an arrow. With only one weight distribution bar, no less.

These photos include the first shots of Elvis from the previous owner and some taken during the recovery process from their Texas backyard.
