Buy It! Two of JFK’s presidential Lincoln limousines (not that one) up for sale

Two Lincoln Limousines used by former U.S. president John F. Kennedy are coming up for sale as part of The American Presidential Experience sale.

The white vehicle, known as “Limo One,” was used on Kennedy’s fatal trip to Texas, but was not the car that he was killed in, according to

The black open convertible Continental that JFK was assassinated in remains at the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan.

On the morning of November 22, 1963, the white 1963 Lincoln Continental convertible drove the President, Jackie Kennedy, and Texas Governor John Connally from a hotel in Fort Worth, Texas, to a breakfast where Kennedy gave a speech, and eventually to the airport for his flight to Dallas. Kennedy would be assassinated later that afternoon in Dallas.

The white vehicle was loaned by Bill Golightly of Golightly Auto Sales, and has been given a replacement engine, as well as new body panels and paint; the red interior is said to be original, however.

The second vehicle for sale is a 1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V Executive limo, which was used by Kennedy for his trips around Washington. It was built by Hess and Eisenhardt and fitted with bulletproof doors, a divider window, passenger air controls, power steering and brakes, and a two-way telephone in the back seat. It has also received a full restoration, except the interior.

These vehicles would look awesome in any car collection, even if tucked away in the back and to the left. The auction will take place on October 14, and will be held by Bonham’s in New York.
