Description

    Elvis Presley Signed Leasing Contract for a Stutz Blackhawk. Produced from 1971-87, the Stutz Blackhawk was a muscle car disguised as a luxury land yacht. Using Pontiac Grand Prix hardware and a 7.5 liter V8 engine, the 2.5-ton vehicle could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 8.4 seconds and had a top speed of 130 mph. Fuel economy was a whopping eight miles per gallon. Elvis was so enamored with the Blackhawk that he bought the second prototype of the design directly from distributor Jules Meyers, and purchased four more over the years. This GM contract, dated September 6, 1974, is written for a black-on-black 1973 Blackhawk III with leather interior, sunroof, wire hubcaps, and 18-karat gold trim, and is signed on the back by Elvis in black ink. Also included is a February 21, 1985, typed letter on Graceland letterhead from Twyla Dixon, verifying that the serial number on the contract matches that of the Blackhawk III on display at Graceland. Both items are in Excellent condition with fold creases and very light wear. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
