Hi Keith

I don't know where you got the info about several of his cars being in this movie, but the Internet Movie Car Database has the MGA in Fun In Acapulco noted as a 1956 MGA Mk I. Elvis personal MGA Mk I was bought from the set of Blue Hawaii and is a 1960 model even thoug they look the same.

The Willys Jeep in Fun In Acapulco is a 1959 Willys Jeep DJ-3A Surrey or Gala Edition, while Elvis personal Surrey is a 1960 Willys Jeep DJ-3A Surrey Edition he bought after using a similar one in Blue Hawaii. If you check out the pictures you can see that the 1959 has a combination of white and pink while Elvis' is only pink with a pink and white top and interior.



Yours sincerely

Expertise

I am 38 years old and I have had over 20 yrs of knowledge of Elvis Presley. I was 7 when I first heard of Elvis the day he died to be exact didn't know about the man they called the King of Rock-n-Roll heard Kentucky Rain on the car radio and my father got me my first Elvis magazine (which I have to this day!)and I was hooked! I wanted to be like him look like him and everything that was Elvis. I even was an Elvis impersonator for a while. I did get to meet LisaMarie here in Maine when she was touring with Chris Isaak on her first album. I've been to Graceland and I'm going back someday! So I know pretty much everything there is to know about Elvis. His life, his music and especially the man we call the King of Rock-n-Roll. So I would love to answer any questions about Elvis and for the ones' who are just finding out about him just like I did back in'77.
