Presidential Limousine
This Lincoln Continental Presidential Limousine was first used by President Nixon. It was later used to provide refuge for President Reagan in 1981 after he was shot by would-be assassin John Hinkley.

Using the lessons learned from President Kennedy's assassination, the car was completely armored, had a closed body, and a permanent roof and bullet-proof glass. In a concession to the presidents' desire to be seen, a sunroof panel can be opened for two people to stand up with their upper bodies outside the car.

The car was used by Richard M. Nixon, Gerald R. Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.

The car is powered by a V-8, overhead valve engine that displaces 460 cubic-inches and produces 214 horsepower. The weight of the vehicle is 13,000 lbs and cost $500,000.

Special features for this car include a bullet resistant glass, a rear bumper that folds down to provide a platform for the Secret Service men, a handrail that rises out of the rear deck lid for the Secret Service agents, and tires that have a 'run flat' design (the inner rim allows the car to keep running if any or all tires are flat).

Additional special features include a pair of two-way communication system, the sunroof panel, a PA system for the president to be heard without leaving the car, and fluorescent lights inside which allow occupants to be seen through windows.
