Want to ride like The King and his queen?

A 1967 Cadillac Coupe De Ville originally owned by Elvis Presley is being auctioned later this month, fittingly at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas event.

According to the seller, Elvis and his new bride Priscilla were often seen driving around Memphis in the car, which was bought not long after their wedding in 1967, earning it the nickname “The Honeymoon Cadillac.”

The red two-door features a black roof and interior, is in good condition, and has been on display in Elvis museums for the past 35 years.

According to the Hagerty Price Guide, perfect examples of the model are worth as much as $30,000, but the celebrity connection could bring a jackpot with it. Proof of its provenance comes in the form of a bill of sale and title featuring Elvis’ name.

Elvis owned over 30 Caddys during his lifetime, but for true romantics this could be the only one.
