You’d think a government would opt for scrapping the car a presidential assassination took place in. Most places would, right? The US of A is not one of them. After President Kennedy was shot on November 22, 1963, the presidential Lincoln Continental, was sent to Hess & Eisenhardt to be modified. There it received a number of upgrades, including armor plating, bullet-resistant glass and a bulletproof permanent roof. Upon its reconstruction, the JFK Lincoln returned to presidential service on this day in 1964. It’d give rides to presidents and their guests until 1978. The JFK car now resides at the Henry Ford Museum near Detroit.
