The Interior Of Elvis Presley’s 1962 Private Jet Is Incredible; It Has Finally Sold

Elvis Presley's fame extended far beyond his extraordinary musical talents and captivating voice, captivating audiences worldwide.

He also displayed expertise in culinary arts and fashion, as evidenced by his iconic blue suede shoes.

Some might not realize the rock star's prowess in design. Take, for instance, the private jet of the renowned King of Rock.

In 1962, Elvis Presley bought a plane that he customized to his liking.

The opulence of the space is evident in the carpet, mahogany paneling, and crimson velvet chairs.

Elvis didn't fly his Lockheed Jetstar model airplane until his death in 1977, even though he had owned it for almost three decades. After his passing, it was placed as a tourist attraction on a highway near Roswell, New Mexico, in the United States.

On the contrary, a telephone bidder, who professed to be an Elvis enthusiast, recently acquired the plane for $260,000 at an auction in Florida.

More than three decades after Elvis's tragic passing, the plane remains in the same spot in New Mexico. Upon closer inspection, you'll notice a subtle red tint on its exterior. Surprisingly, considering its age, the plane is still in remarkably good condition.

Simply put, I wouldn't mind a lengthy flight in this jet. Take a peek inside. I had a clear idea of how the King of Rock would style it.

The walls are adorned with wooden paneling, and the seats are draped in luxurious crimson velvet.

The seating seems to be of premium quality, and there is ample space for passengers. Adjacent to the main area is a compact kitchenette.

For instance, take the microwave. Considering its age, I highly doubt it's still functional. Elvis famously prepared his signature sandwich, comprising peanut butter, mayonnaise, crispy bacon, and a banana, by rising from his seat, heading into the kitchen, and popping it into the microwave.

Currently, the winning bid for the plane stands at $260,000. The auction took place on January 8 at the Mecum Kissimmee Collector Car Auction in Florida.

Anonymous phone bids were placed by the new owner.
