Elvis Presley’s Cadillac car, his U.S. Army papers, and rare footage of his final ever performance are to go up for auction.

The classic 1972 vehicle is among the top lots at a Presley-related sale at The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California later this month.

The auction also includes rare photographs, documents detailing The King’s induction to and discharge from the U.S. military, and more than four hours of film and audio footage of Presley performing shortly before his death in 1977.

The film, which also includes scenes backstage and in the Hound Dog hitmaker’s dressing room, was shot as part of the U.S. TV special, Elvis In Concert, which was broadcast shortly after his death, but has never been officially released for sale.
