Elvis Presley’s custom-designed tour bus, built in 1976, is up for auction today from Julien’s Auctions of Beverly Hills. The bus features spots for nine sleepers and was originally designed for the King’s backup back, the TCB Band — which, of course, stands for “taking care of business.”  The presale estimate for the bus is between $100,000 to $200,000.

Other items being auctioned today include Elvis’ marriage certificate to Pricilla, one of his guitars and Elvis’ 1971 Stutz Blackhawk car, which is expected to sell for more than $400,000. Elvis was the first person to ever buy a Blackhawk car. The King picked up the very first one in 1970, for $26,500.
