The private jet of once superstar Elvis Presley can now be all yours.
In 1962, Elvis bought a private jet, a Lockheed Jetstar. He designed the inside himself. Along with beautiful wood paneling, the plane also featured shag carpet and red velvet seats.
After Elvis died in 1977, the plane sat abandoned on a tarmac in New Mexico.
Now, however, the plane is up for auction — so fans of The King can bid on his one-of-a-kind personal plane.
The current owner purchased the jet from the Graceland estate for $430,000 last May. The auctioneering firm that brokered the previous sale, GWS Auctions, Inc., estimated that the plane could sell for millions if properly restored, according to Fortune magazine.
Online auction site IronPlanet is now accepting bids until July 27, 2018.
