Buy it! Two of JFK’s Lincoln presidential sedans (not this one) are for sale

Two Lincoln limousines belonging to former US President John F. Kennedy are put 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 he was killed in, according to FordAuthority.com.

The black open convertible Continental in which JFK was murdered is in the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan.

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

The white vehicle was loaned to Bill Golightly of Golightly Auto Sales and received a replacement engine and new body panels and paint. However, the red interior should be original.

The second vehicle for sale is a 1960 Lincoln Continental Mark V Executive sedan that Kennedy used when touring Washington. It was built by Hess and Eisenhardt and equipped with bulletproof doors, a partition window, passenger air controls, power steering and brakes, and a two-way phone in the back seat. It has also been fully restored, with the exception of the interior.

These vehicles would look awesome in any car collection even if they were hidden in the back and left. The auction will take place on October 14th and will be conducted by Bonham’s in New York.
