Classic Cars Owned By Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley to Be Auctioned Off
Three iconic cars from country music are set to be auctioned off later this week in Las Vegas.
The auction is being held by Barrett-Jackson and will feature the 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow owned by Johnny Cash, as well as Elvis Presley's 1967 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and the Chevrolet Corvette Split Coupe Window from Presley's film 'Viva Las Vegas.'
“You really can’t get more ‘rock 'n' roll’ than Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Las Vegas,” says Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis. “We’re very excited to have three amazing celebrity vehicles ready to cross our auction block at the Mandalay Bay in September. Collectively they represent the high level of fun and energy that Barrett-Jackson brings to every city that hosts our auctions.”
The auction is set to take place Sept. 25-27 at the Mandalay Bay Event Center. Live coverage of the event will be broadcast on the Fox network and National Geographic.
“Las Vegas has a deep connection to many of the most celebrated rock 'n' roll legends of our time,” says Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s only fitting that we have a few of the cars from the biggest names in the music industry represented on our Vegas auction block.”
