Elvis Week to feature concerts, auction, candlelight vigil

The jet has been sitting on a runway in Roswell, New Mexico for over 30 years with red velvet seats and a redshag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engines and needs a restoration of its cockpit. The intricate wood inlays, shag carpet and red velvet seats transport you all the way back to the 60s.

A previous owner of a private jet also once owned by Elvis Presley is disputing an auction house's claim that the king of rock "n" roll designed its red velvet interior.

The jet will be auctioned off next week at an event in California with other "celebrity memorabilia, including handwritten notes from The Beach Boys and lost photos of the late R&B singer Aaliyah". It's quite reasonable, given that, as the website emphasizes, the jet "could potentially earn its new owner millions of dollars in exhibit, or entry fees as an attraction".

Elvis Presley's last privately-owned jet is up for auction.

However, Stark did reveal that the current owner of the plane did allow Elvis Presley's 1962 Lockheed Jetstar to be used for occasional aviation events, as Fox News report.

Elvis Presley traveled in style, needless to say.

"It's been five or six years since there have been any tours of it", said Stark.

If you've ever wanted to get your hands on some Elvis Presley memorabilia and you've got $3.5 million cash to spare, this could be your lucky day. The Lisa Marie plane, for example, can be seen at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee.

It's said that the plane was "One of the first Elvis owned... he spent hundreds of thousands modifying it".

Presley was born in Tupelo on January 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13.

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