Elvis Private Airplane and Car Museum

Monday, November 13, 2017
On second week of October, 2017 we visited Graceland, Elvis’ mansion in Memphis, Tennessee. This post is a continuation of last week post where I shared photos of the inside of Graceland. You might want to click there first if you haven’t already read it. Today I’m sharing some photos from each of the exhibits at Graceland.

Elvis owned two custom airplanes, the Lisa Marie, a Convair 880 named after the rock legend's daughter, and Hound Dog II, a Lockheed JetStar.  The JetStar is quite small allowing visitors only  it has a neon yellow and green interior, but a better tour can be found inside the Lisa Marie. 

The "Lisa Marie", Elvis Presley''s private plane named after his daughter, is on display in Graceland.
Presley bought the jet from Delta Air Lines for $250,000 in April 1975; refurbishing brought the total to over $600,000, and he first boarded the craft in November of that year.

Elvis plane features a red-white-and-blue exterior and gold-plated bathroom fixtures.


A stereo system and conference room.

All seat belts on the plane are plated in gold.

Bedroom and dressing room


An avid fan of Elvis my mom and dad.

Elvis loved cars and he loved giving them away, what a generous guy he was! The cars in this museum collection are ones he personally drove and bought for family members. Elvis Museum, detailing his personal life and life on the road. The following are two of my favorites.

1955  Cadillac Fleet-wood: Perhaps the most famous of Elvis’ cars.  Custom painted pink, this car was first used by Elvis for touring. He then gave the car to his mom.

1973 STUTZ BLACKHAWK: Legend has it that this Stutz Blackhawk was originally ordered for Frank Sinatra, but charmed away from the car dealer by Elvis. This car was presented to Elvis at the Las Vegas International Hotel in 1970 and was the first ever Stutz Blackhawk to be delivered in the United States.
