The Secret Service quickly took steps to have the vehicle rebuilt so it would better protect future presidents. They returned the car to Hess & Eisenhardt for modifications which included chrome bumper plugs and armor plating. The car was also repainted black at the request of President Johnson. A permanent steel top was fitted in 1964 and in 1967 the rear trunk was reinforced.
The car was in service from 1961 to 1977.
