Lincoln Continental In Which JFK Was Shot
The Lincoln Continental in which JFK was shot in is currently on display at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
After that tragic day, the limo received various modifications, including full armoring, bulletproof hardtoop and a new interior.
It was used as a Presidential limo until 1977 after serving no less than four other Presidents after JFK.
