Elvis Presley was renowned not only for his amazing music career and unique voice, which wowed millions around the world.

He also had a keen sense of taste in cuisine and fashion.

But not everyone is aware that the rock icon also seemed to have a sixth sense regarding interior design. The King of Rock’s iconic privately owned jet aircraft epitomizes this. MecuAuctions


Elvis bought his plane in 1962 and had it custom-built to his specifications.

A glance inside reveals the stunning wooden panels, carpet, and red velvet seats.

Elvis possessed the Lockheed Jetstar model for over 35 years before abandoning it when he died in 1977. It has since been transformed into a tourist attraction on the road in Roswell, New Mexico, USA.

But, after all these years, the aircraft was auctioned off, and an Elvis fan recently purchased it over the phone for $260,000 at a Florida auction. MecuAuctions

Elvis was in the aircraft with his father, Vernon Presley, when it lifted above the clouds.

The plane stayed in a special location in New Mexico for over 30 years after Elvis’ death. If you gaze closely at the plane’s exterior, you’ll notice the red color is somewhat washed out. Nonetheless, for its age, the plane is in excellent condition.

Examine the interior. I wouldn’t mind taking a long journey on this aircraft. It’s precisely what I imagined the King of Rock’s style to be like.

The walls are paneled with wood, and the chairs are upholstered in soft crimson velvet. MecuAuctions

Of course, a ‘high-tech’ television is fitted. The aircraft is mostly comprised of a single large room.

The seats appear very comfortable, and there appears to be plenty of space for guests. A tiny kitchen is located behind the main room.

Simply glance at the microwave. After all these years, it’s likely that it no longer works. Simultaneously, imagine Elvis getting out of his armchair, going to the kitchen, spreading peanut butter, mayonnaise, crispy bacon, and banana on a classic Elvis sandwich, and then heating it in the microwave.

Check out the restroom! Of course, there will be more velvet and a more abundant sink. When compared to the limited space available on charter aircraft.

Isn’t that great? I’m so glad I saw Elvis’ ultimate traveling style.

The aircraft was auctioned off for $260K today. On January 8, it was auctioned off at the Mecum Kissimmee Collector Vehicle Auction in Florida.

The new owner placed bids over the phone and has not been named.
