SS-100-X

The car shown above is the actual SS-100-X that President John F. Kennedy was assasinated in. It is one of the more popular attractions at the Henry Ford Museum. Some will say, no, that can’t be the car… The car JFK was assasinated in was a convertible, and was blue, not black. Well… apparently the car actually had a bubble top that was often removed due to it being too hot, and after the assassination, president Johnson had the car painted black so it wasn’t visually associated with the assassination during the next 4 years of service (eventually being retired in 1967).
