ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO (FOX BUSINESS) – A custom jet once owned by Elvis Presley is up for sale, just a year after fetching nearly half a million dollars.

The unrestored plane, a 1962 Lockheed Jetstar, has hit the auction block through IronPlanet, a seller of used heavy equipment and government surplus.

Presley’s Jetstar sits in a boneyard in Roswell, New Mexico, where private owners have stored the famous plane for more than 35 years. Its current owner acquired the jet for $430,000 last year, according to Robb Report magazine, despite estimates that it could change hands in a multimillion-dollar sale.

The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll fitted his jet with unique features like gold-plated accents, red velvet seats and red plush carpet. But images on IronPlanet’s website Opens a New Window. show that the jet has aged considerably since being retired.

The vintage plane is being sold as-is, and it’s missing engines and cockpit components.
