Elvis Presley’s iconic jets for sale

The "Lisa Marie" jet on display at the Graceland Museum, Tennessee.

The King’s last two private jets, the “Lisa Marie” and “Hound Dog II”, are up for sale after the Elvis Presley Enterprises, which operates the Graceland Museum at Elvis’ Tennessee home, asked the owner of the planes, K.G. Coker, to remove the jets by early 2015.

Symbols of the rock star’s luxurious life, the jets were on display at the Graceland Museum since the 80s until now, when it suddenly appeared for sale on an aviation classified website, local media reported.

The 1960 Convair 880 “Lisa Marie” was used by the King for his tours. It looks like a flying limousine, with a large bed, a conference room and gold bathroom fixtures.

The smaller “Hound Dog II” was Elvis’ “back-up” jet, flown when the “Lisa Marie” was not available.
