AceShowbiz - Elvis Presley's two private planes are put on the market. Both are not operable, but have been on display at Graceland for more than 30 years. They are being sold as one lot, and bidders will have the option to buy land next to Graceland and open their own exhibit of the jets.
One of the planes is a Convair 880 jet purchased by the late King of Rock N' Roll in 1975. He spent $300,000 to add a bathroom with gold taps, a stereo system with 50 speakers, and a master suite with full-size bed and conference room.
The customized jet was named after his only daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, who was born in 1968. The last flight it took was to take his former wife Priscilla Presley and actor George Hamilton to his funeral in 1977. It was sold by his father Vernon a year later.
The other plane is a Lockheed JetStar named The Hound Dog II. It was also bought in 1975 for the late musician to use while the Lisa Marie was being refurbished.
