Default Private Jet Once Owned by Elvis Presley for Sale (Again)

A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley that has sat on a runway in New Mexico
for nearly four decades is back on the auction block.

The online auction site IronPlanet announced this week that the plane with
red-velvet seats had returned the market after its current owner bought it last
year for $430,000.

A previous auction house says Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tone
woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed
Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit.

The plane was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley.

It has been privately owned for 36 years and sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, New
Mexico.

Lindsay Goldstein, a spokeswoman for IronPlanet, said the jet is still grounded
in Roswell and the current owner “has not made any changes to this piece of
history.”

Photos of the plane also show the exterior in need of restoration and seats of
the cockpit torn.

A previous owner disputed an auction house’s claim the king of rock ‘n’ roll
designed its red velvet interior.

Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque he designed the interior himself. McKay
said that when he purchased the jet, it had a two-toned gray interior and “kind
of looked like a casket.”

But then-GWS Auctions Inc. spokesman Carl Carter told The Associated Press the
auction house is confident Elvis designed the interior, which photos show has
red velvet seats and red shag carpet.

IronPlanet also is confident Elvis designed its red velvet interior, Goldstein
said.

Federal Aviation Administration records show no interior changes were ever made
to the jet, Carter said.

IronPlanet is accepting online bids for the plane until July 27.

Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, on Jan. 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis,
Tennessee, with his parents at age 13. He became a leading figure in the
fledgling rockabilly scene by covering songs originally performed by
African-American artists like Big Mama Thornton (“Hound Dog”) and Arthur Crudup
(“That’s All Right”).

His provocative dancing and hit records turned him into one of the 20th
century’s most recognizable icons. Historians say his music also helped usher in
the fall of racial segregation.

Elvis was 42 when he died on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis.

I wondered the same thing about the engines and the nacelles too.

Was never an Elvis fan and just can't imagine undertaking a
restoration on this thing when there are still so many deserving war
birds out there yet to be restored.



....first things first...replace the plushy velvet.

The Jetstar has always been a favorite of mine; just looks good - even
in USAF lizard camo...

The very first - twin engined - Jetstar is being restored for the
Museum of Flight in Seattle.

Interesting. That motivated me to look up the museum, wow, what a
beautiful facility. I have put it on my list of places to visit the
next time I am in that area!


Quite worth it! Don't forget their restoration center a few miles
north at Paine Field. And once you are at Paine Filed, there are
three more (well, 2 1/2...) really nice aviation (and armor) museums.
