John F. Kennedy’s Hearse Can Be Yours — For the Right Price
Attention, ghoulish shoppers! If you want a one-of-a-kind memento, get those checkbooks ready — the hearse that drove the body of slain President John F. Kennedy to the airport after his assassination is currently being auctioned off.
The Barrett-Jackson car auction company has what it claims is the white 1964 Cadillac Hearse that transported JFK and Jackie Kennedy from the Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas to the city’s Love Field Airport, where Air Force One later took the president and first lady back to Washington, DC.
The O’Neal Funeral Home bought the car just one month before JFK’s 1963 assassination, and while it’s changed hands several times since, Steve Lichtman of the Professional Car Society (PCS) says that he and the society’s other members are convinced the hearse is authentic.
The auction is going on now in Scottsdale, Arizona and will continue through January 22.
