While all of the vehicles are unique historical artifacts, arguably the most recognizable Presidential limo is John F. Kennedy's 1961 Lincoln Continental in which he was assassinated on November 23, 1963. The original vehicle had no armor and several removable roofs, but following the tragedy the existing car (known as X-100) was rebuilt with titanium plating, bullet proof glass, and a permanent roof. This iconic limousine is a must-see at the Henry Ford. Learn more about these historic Presidential Vehicles here.
