Pagoda at Graceland

You will find a Pagoda at Graceland. Elvis gave it to Priscilla, and it’s on display.

Looks to be sitting much too low in the front.

I saw that car many years ago.  I have to believe given the mild climate and low miles it must have been driven that it would be a great car to document for originality.

The ghost of Elvis is sitting on the hood.

If it’s the ghost of Elvis at age 42 the bumper will be near the ground

No I think it’s the ghost of Elvis lying under the rear end. The rear is too high. BTW 1969 280SL, not concour but a nice example.
