Not only did the ambulance transport JFK following his untimely death, it’s one of the finest examples of an un-restored ambulance from that time period. It’s also one of the most significant and historical vehicles ever offered for sale.
The ambulance met Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington D.C. following President Kennedy's assassination. It transported President Kennedy’s flag-draped casket, his wife, Jacqueline and his brother, Robert F. Kennedy, the U.S. Attorney General at that time, from Andrews to Bethesda Naval Hospital and later to the U.S. Capitol.
