It's the guy in the green suit you need to worry about not the car or the bride :rolling:

Priscilla Presley Remembers the Best Gift She Ever Got From Husband Elvis Presley

Image
Priscilla Presley posing with her graduation gift from Elvis, a 1963 red Corvair.
Though Priscilla Presley lost Elvis Presley nearly 40 years ago, the star still remembers the best gift she ever received from her former husband.

In an exclusive new interview with Closer Weekly, the 72-year-old star revealed Elvis once gave her a brand new 1964 Chevrolet Corvair when she was just 17 years old...

And, of course, my wife Tracy and I just celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary this past April.

just for your interest, your corvair is (currently!) the earliest one that I can find that's registered in the uk (although the Oakland number sequence may skew this compared to willowrun)

its also one of 2 that came from Oakland (the other is a 62)

one of 3 1960s

one of 6 sedans

one of 4 500's

I can currently find 13 'mark one' corvairs registered in the uk (i.e cars that have got uk registrations, so I know there is a couple more)
