Barrett-Jackson's JFK Ambulance a Fraud? Blogger Claims Actual Ambulance Was Destroyed in 1986

The ambulance billed by Barrett-Jackson as the one that carried President John F. Kennedy could be a fraud.
About two weeks ago, we reported that at this year's Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, the ambulance that carried President John F. Kennedy after his 1963 assassination would be on the auction block. Today we learned the ambulance getting auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson could be a fraud.

A blogger for the Web site Jalopnik.com wrote a post last night, in which he claims the actual ambulance used to carry Kennedy after he was gunned down in Dallas was destroyed in 1986. That information, he claims, came straight from the United States Navy.

See a letter from the Navy below.

The blogger claims the actual ambulance was crushed and is now in a junkyard in Boston.

The ambulance is scheduled to be auctioned off tomorrow. Representatives from Barrett-Jackson did not immediately return our call this afternoon.

All I can say is if I owned that junkyard and that car came through, I would have at least tried to figure out a way to keep the damned thing. The VIN numbers ought to provide a clue.

Who cares, the guy didn't drive it, fart in it or put out a cigarette in it.

The ambulance that was crushed in Boston is not the Kennedy ambulance. Take a close look at the pictures. In the photo showing Jackie getting into the ambulance shows clearly the door handle BEHIND the window post, but the picture of the ambulance in the junk yard just before crushing shows the door handle IN FRONT of the window post.

What kind of imbecile would pay Barrett-Jackson prices for a 1963 Pontiac Catalina station wagon that hauled cadavers around Dallas, Texas ?What if JFK is haunting the damned thing ? Every time you turn on the radio all you'd get is Marilyn Monroe drunk singing Happy Birthday, Mr. President. I'll buy my shit down on Van Buren 'fore I'd put up with that.

The Navy says it was destroyed -- isn't that like Bush saying "Mission Accomplished" ?
