The private jet, which has been sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, N.M. for more than 30 years, was the featured item in a celebrity auction event held in Agoura Hills.
Still, the auction house says the jet could make the new owner millions of dollars if the plane is used as an exhibit.
Untouched since Elvis owned it, the jet is the only plane once owned by the legendary singer that is privately owned.
The plane, a 1962 red Lockheed JetStar, sold without an engine.
The jet was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley, Liveauctioneers.com says.
The plane sat on a runway for the last 35 years.
Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque (https://goo.gl/GpE3zV) he designed the interior himself. McKay is rather saying that he designer the interior of the jet and that when he purchased the jet, it only had a two-toned gray interior and "kind of looked like a casket".
Federal Aviation Administration records indicate no signs of interior changes, Carter said.
Presley was born in 1935 in Tupelo. Two other planes owned by Elvis are now on display at the Elvis Presley Museum in Memphis, Tenn.
