Yet Again, An Attempt to Sell the Hearse That Took Kennedy From Parkland to Love Field
So, then, once more with feeling: On January 21, in Scottsdale, Barrett-Jackson will yet again attempt to move the Hearse that began as the prized possession of Vernon B. O'Neal and the O'Neal Funeral Home. Here's the listing, along with look under the hood. From the release, a little history-of:
The hearse is chassis 64Z000050, which was mated to body #64001. It was built by the Miller-Meteor Company in time for display at the National Funeral Home Directors Association Convention that took place in Dallas in October, 1963. At the close of the trade show, the hearse was purchased by the O'Neal Funeral Home in Dallas. A few weeks later on Nov. 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was mortally wounded and taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The O'Neal Funeral Home was summoned to supply the finest casket it had available, as well as an appropriate conveyance.I'll have to pass; maybe Gordon Keith's interested? But this looks nice.
The hearse then made the historic trip carrying the President's body as well as the First Lady from Parkland Memorial Hospital to Love Field, where Air Force One was waiting to transport the casket to Washington, D.C.
