JOHN F. KENNEDY MOTORCADE LIMO FOR "PERSONAL USES." A beautiful motor pool limousine, with an excellent association to President Kennedy. The first owner after it's lease to the government, James C. Walsh, attested:

"I spoke to Mr. Campbell Schmidt Jr. ... an official of the Washington office of the Ford Motor Company. He told me that President Johnson had switched all the White House cars ... As a result the Ford Motor Company was going to sell this car and at my wife, Mary's, insistence I purchased it on the spot ... The late president had been exceptionally gracious to our son ... who had attended the White House school ... It is because of this association that I had the opportunity to meet the late president and to know in fact that he did use this car for his own personal uses in contrast to the official use of the larger White House limousine."
