JFK Presidential Limousines


white-limo

This white 1963 Lincoln Continental was used to transport President John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, and Texas governor John Connally from a breakfast and speech at the Hotel Texas ballroom through the streets of Fort Worth to Carswell Air Force Base, where they boarded their short flight to Dallas on the morning of November 22, 1963. This car was loaned out by Bill Golightly, of Golightly Auto Sales in Fort Worth, for use by the president while he was in town. The automobile has been painstakingly restored by Lincoln specialist Baker Restoration of Putnam, Connecticut, with the engine having been replaced and body work and paint done as well. Most of the interior, including the red leather seats, is in its original condition.

A black 1960 Lincoln Continental limousine from the Kennedy White House motor pool. Originally built by Hugh, this four-door bulletproof limo features a divider window, passenger air controls, power steering and brakes, and a very uncommon two-way telephone in the back seat. Much of the body has been restored, to the tune of approximately $35,000, however the interior remains in it’s original condition.
