History of the Kennedy Limousine

Summary

Arguably, no presidential limousine is as widely-recognized as the 1961 Lincoln Continental in which John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963. When originally constructed, the car had no armor. After the tragedy, it was thoroughly rebuilt with titanium plating, bullet-resistant glass and a more powerful engine to handle the added weight. This film tells the limo's remarkable story.
