From a solid gold Cadillac to a powder blue speedboat, Elvis Presley knew how to travel in style.

Now modern travelers can get a taste of The King’s iconic, over-the-top aesthetic by bidding for one of his original luxury private jets.

Elvis’s 1962 Lockheed Jetstar was designed by the legend himself, from the woodwork to the red velvet seats and red shag carpet. The plane was especially dear to the musician as he shared it with his father, Vernon Presley.

For the past 35 years, the jet has sat abandoned on a tarmac in Roswell, New Mexico.

If the winner of the auction ever wants to fly the aircraft, they will need to do some work: The plane has never been restored and it is currently without engines.

However, the winning bid will also receive original paperwork, signed by Elvis Presley himself, detailing his plans for customizing the interior. The external painting, detailing, and interior have not been touched or altered since Presley's day.

Elvis had two other private planes in his lifetime, both of which are housed at the Elvis Presley Museum in Tennessee.

The aircraft is expected to sell for between $2 and 3.5 million when it goes to auction on Saturday, May 27. The current bid is already at $126,000.

Fans who don’t manage to snag the plane can also bid on Presley's custom-designed 14k-carat yellow gold ring with a 4.5-carat diamond, estimated to sell for $55,000. Still out of your price range? You can stay in his Guest House for $159 a night.
