In an exclusive new interview with Closer Weekly, the 72-year-old star revealed Elvis once gave her a brand new 1964 Chevrolet Corvair when she was just 17 years old.
“Elvis gifted it to me as a [high school] graduation present in 1963. I loved it! Can you imagine? It was my very first car and the fact that he gave it to me made it very special,” Priscilla told Closer.

“It was such a beautiful car… Cars were larger in those days so this was the perfect car for me,” she continued. “It was sporty in look and feel. There weren’t many around.”
“I remember taking Elvis for a drive in it, but only around the circular driveway at Graceland,” Priscilla told Closer. “He didn’t want to be seen with a girl driving him around!”

Elvis and Priscilla first met in September 1959 during a party at Elvis’ home in Bad Nauheim, Germany, where he was then serving in the Army. Though Priscilla was just 14 years old at the time, the two hit it off and later began dating. They tied the knot in Las Vegas in May 1967.
“We literally lived in a bubble,” Priscilla once said of her six-year marriage to Elvis. The pair divorced in 1973 — five years after they welcomed their only child, daughter Lisa Marie Presley — and Elvis tragically died at age 42 in August 1977.
