Elvis Presley’s remarkable musical career and unique voice captivated millions of people throughout the globe, but he was also well-known for other things.

Additionally, he had a sharp eye for style and food (blue suede shoes, anyone?).

However, some people may be unaware of the rock icon’s apparent ability to decorate mystically. An excellent example of this is the famous private jet that the King of Rock owns.

Elvis had a Lockheed Jetstar model to be made to his exact specifications in 1962. It had plush crimson velvet couches, mahogany woodwork, and plush carpets. Even the most discriminating reviewer would be amazed by the interior’s beauty. After Elvis Presley passed away in 1977, his airplane sat idle for more than 30 years before being turned into a well-liked tourist destination in Roswell, New Mexico.

But it was just sold at auction in Florida for an astounding $260,000 to a phone bidder who identified himself as an Elvis fan. This aircraft came to represent the King of Rock’s legacy and his impeccable taste in fashion. When Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley, first took to the sky in their private plane, they must have been overcome with happiness and grandeur.

Every cost has been considered to deliver the ultimate travel experience. Yes, Elvis showed off his amazing design skills and attention to detail even in the skies. It should come as no surprise that his plane lived on long after his passing. In a secluded area of New Mexico, Elvis Presley’s aircraft, named Lisa Marie after his daughter, has lain idle for more than thirty years. The plane’s exterior has turned a light red color and lost its glitzy attractiveness, but despite the passage of time, it is still in very good condition.

As soon as one walks inside this unique aviation history, they are struck by how lavishly decorated it is. Traditional oak paneling covers the interior walls, and the most opulent crimson velvet possible is used to cover the seating. It’s impossible not to picture the King of Rock himself sprawled out in one of these chairs, opulently bathed in luxury and sporting a beautiful pair of sunglasses. There is plenty of space for passengers to stretch out during a trip thanks to the spacious and cozy seating area.

Behind the main eating area is a small kitchen. Despite its small size, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare dinner, even a retro microwave. It is impossible not to picture Elvis making one of his signature sandwiches—a strange mixture of peanut butter, mayonnaise, bacon, and banana—and reheating it in the microwave before indulging in the delicious treat.

Elvis established a legacy of unparalleled luxury and style with this album, cementing his status as the undisputed king of rock and roll!

Although the aircraft bathroom is gorgeous, it may use more tasteful touches like velvet and a more sophisticated sink. Still, it’s a huge improvement over the cramped restrooms on charter planes. It was made better by the fact that, while searching for the bathroom, I happened to spot Elvis looking festive. On January 8, the aircraft was put up for auction at the Mecum Kissimmee Collector Car Auction in Florida, where a $260,000 winning offer was placed.

The new owner chose to put their bids over the phone anonymously. This sale represents a significant milestone for the aircraft, and we are excited to see where it goes next.
