NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City auction is offering Elvis Presley fans the chance to own his custom-designed tour bus featuring nine sleeping berths.

Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills says the 1976 bus is among 200 Elvis-related items at its May 16 "Music Icons" sale at the Hard Rock Cafe New York.

The presale estimate is $100,000 to $200,000. The bus comes with copies of the $25,000 check Elvis wrote for the down payment.

He bought the MCI Crusader Bus for his backup singers, the TCB Band. TCB stood for Elvis' slogan "Taking Care of Business."

Other highlights include Elvis' 1971 Stutz Blackhawk car. The luxury two-seater could fetch $400,000 to $600,000.

The King of Rock 'n' Roll was born Jan. 8, 1935. He died in 1977 in Memphis, Tennessee.
