Jet owned by Elvis auctioned after sitting 30 years

Jet owned by Elvis auctioned after sitting 30 years

Untouched since Elvis owned it, the jet is the only plane once owned by the legendary singer that is privately owned.

The 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has sat on a runway in Roswell, New Mexico for 35 years and has no engines and an unrestored cockpit, GWS Auctions Inc. said.

According to The Telegraph, the jet's previous owner hosted some tours, but none in the last five or six years.

A private jet, former property of King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley, has been auctioned off for $430,000 at Agoura Hills, California. The jet no longer has an engine and its cockpit needs fix.

Auctioneer Brigitte Kruse said the jet still has original woodwork, inlay, red velvet seats and red shag carpet and portions of the interior were custom created to Elvis' specifications. McKay is rather saying that he designer the interior of the jet and that when he purchased the jet, it only had a two-toned gray interior and "kind of looked like a casket".

The plane's interior was designed by Elvis Presley, with gold-tone, woodwork, inlay and red velvet seats and red shag carpet.

Presley was born in Tupelo on January 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13. Historians say his music also helped usher in the fall of racial segregation.
