A private jet once used by Elvis Presley has sold well below its estimate at auction.

The plane sat on a runway for the last 35 years.

The person who bought it and the buyer's plans for the plane have not been released, the Associated Press reported.

Elvis owned the jet with his father, Vernon Presley, and was custom designed for the King including gold-tone hardware, red velvet seats and a red carpet, according to the auctioneer.

The plane, privately owned, had been sitting on New Mexico tarmac for 30 years.

Two other planes once owned by Elvis are on display in Graceland, the late singer's estate: Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II.

Roy McKay told KOB-TV in Albuquerque (https://goo.gl/GpE3zV) he designed the interior himself.
