JFK Ambulance on Block at Barrett-Jackson Auction
Wanna go for a ride?
Anyone in the market for a morbid piece of history is in luck: the ambulance used to drive President John F. Kennedy following his assassination is for sale.
The Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, to be held later this month, has added the JFK ambulance to the inventory of cool cars to be auctioned off at this year's Scottsdale auction.
The ambulance is the same vehicle that carried JFK's body on November 22, 1963 after it was flown to Washington D.C. from Dallas.
The ambulance also moved Kennedy's casket, as well as his wife Jackie and brother Robert, to the U.S. Capitol Building where Kennedy lay in state after the assassination.
It's unclear what the opening bid for the ambulance will be, but, like most things Barrett-Jackson, you probably won't be able to afford it.
The auction is scheduled for January 17 through January 23. For more info click here.
