VIDEO: Elvis Presley’s BMW 507 restored to former glory

BMW Classic has fully restored a 1957, 507 roadster that once belonged to Elvis Presley. Driven by King of Rock n Roll in the late 50s while he was carrying out military service in Germany, its was once thought that chassis number 70079 was lost for good.. until it turned up, in an old pumpkin warehouse in 2009 in California. The 507 was sprayed red at Elvis’s request to stop girls writing notes on the car in lipstick and was found minus its engine and gearbox. After a two year, true-to-original restoration no salvageable part was replaced - with the car now purring again to the sound of a 3.2 litre V8 rebuilt from spares.
