Visitor Tips and News About JFK's Autopsy Ambulance
JFK's Autopsy Ambulance
This is the ambulance and gurney that carried JFK's body from Air Force One to its autopsy at Bethesda Naval Hospital. Or maybe it isn't -- which is why the new Allen Unique Autos Museum was able to buy it for a tenth of its expected auction price. Some believe that it's actually the decoy ambulance that was used to fool the press in 1963. Others think that it's the original and that the decoy ambulance was the one that the Kennedy family mistakenly ordered crushed into a cube years later.
Either way, the slate gray 1963 Pontiac Bonneville Navy ambulance is as close as anyone's ever going to get to the real thing. Also on display at the museum: Sonny and Cher's Mustangs![RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 04/18/2011]
