(CNN) - A plane once owned by Elvis Presley will be on the auction block this weekend.

GWS Auctions incorporated is set to auction off a 1962 Lockheed jet Saturday.

The king of rock and roll personally owned the jet with his father Vernon Presley.

Portions of the plane's interior were custom designed to Presley's specifications, including gold-tone hardware, red velvet seats and red shag carpet.

The jet has not been restored since Elvis last owned it, and is supposedly in the same condition he left it in.

Don't expect to leave the building in full Elvis style. The plane has no engine and the cockpit needs to be restored.

The starting bid for the plane is $10,000 dollars, but liveauctioneers.net has the highest bid at more than $151,000.
