JFK Hearse To Be Auctioned At Barrett-Jackson In Scottsdale

JFK Hearse To Be Auctioned At Barrett-Jackson In Scottsdale

November 22, 1963 was a very dark day in America’s history. John F. Kennedy, who was America’s 35th President, was shot and killed while his convoy made way through the heart of Dallas, TX.

On this fateful day, the ambulance that took his body to Air Force One, is now being auctioned off at the 41st Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, in Scottsdale, AZ.

While the incident took place in 1963, the vehicle used was titled as a 1964 Cadillac Hearse. This hearse has the chassis number 64Z000050 and was built by the Miller-Meteor Company. The hearse, which was owned by the O’Neal Funeral Home, was called to the task to carry the President’s body.

This vehicle is given the lot number 1293, and it will get auctioned between Jan. 15 – 22 at West World of Scottsdale. Last year, a Pontiac ambulance which transported President Kennedy’s body from Air Force One to Bethesda Naval Hospital was sold at Barrett-Jackson for $120,000, despite many believing it to be a fake.
