The interior of Elvis Presley’s 1962 private jet is incredible; it has finally sold.

Elvis Presley was well known for more than just his incredible musical career and unique voice, which wowed crowds all over the world.

He was also a culinary and fashion expert (blue suede shoes, anyone?).

It’s possible that some people are unaware of the rock star’s expertise in design. Consider the well-known King of Rock’s private jet as an example.

1962 saw the purchase of Elvis Presley’s plane, which he had customized to his tastes.

The space’s opulence can already be seen in the carpet, mahogany paneling, and crimson velvet chairs.

Until his death in 1977, Elvis didn’t fly the Lockheed Jetstar model airplane he had owned for almost three decades. Then it was placed as a tourist stop on a highway close to Roswell, New Mexico, in the United States.

In contrast, a telephone bidder who claimed to be an Elvis fan recently purchased the plane for $260,000 at a Florida auction.

The interior of Elvis Presley’s 1962 private jet is incredible; it has finally sold.

After Elvis tragically passed away more than three decades ago, the plane is still in the same place in New Mexico. You’ll notice that the plane’s exterior has a subtle red tint if you look closely. The plane is actually in surprisingly good condition for its age, though.

I don’t mind a long flight in this jet, to put it simply. Have a look inside. I knew exactly how the King of Rock would dress.

The walls are paneled with wood, and the seats are upholstered in plush crimson velvet.

The seating appears to be of excellent quality, and there is plenty of room for people. Behind the main room is a tiny kitchen.

As an illustration, think about the microwave. Given how old it is, I have serious doubts that it is still usable. The fabled Elvis sandwich, which consists of peanut butter, mayonnaise, crispy bacon, and a banana, is made by Elvis by getting up from his chair, going into the kitchen, and putting it in the microwave.

At the moment, $260,000 is the winning bid for the plane. On January 8, the auction took place at the Florida-based Mecum Kissimmee Collector Car Auction.

Anonymous phone bids were placed by the new owner.
