Vehicle History Report

Vehicle Overview

THE MOST SIGNIFICANT PIECE OF JOHN F KENNEDY MEMORABILIA EVER OFFERED FOR SALE

Who could ever imagine that a single object can represent such a significant piece of American history?  Even more amazing is the raw emotion that this object evokes from every man, woman and child who was alive that very fateful day on the 22nd of November 1963.  This 1964 Miller-Meteor hearse arrived in Dallas on October 1963 for the national funeral directors association convention.  It was the display vehicle as a new model year introduction for the 1964 and its body # 64001.  It was purchased by the O'Neal Funeral Home located in Dallas when the convention ended.

History collided with this hearse that unforgettable day at Parkland Memorial shortly thereafter.  There are hundreds of different theories, conspiracies and stores that are argued to this very day but there are certain known facts that are undisputable.  The Lincoln convertible that the president rode in has been reconfigured at least once and no longer retains its originality and is located in the Henry Ford Museum.  The ambulance that carried the president in Washington D.C. just recently appeared out of nowhere.  The pedigree and originality of this car is impeccable and without question.  This hearse has only changed hands 2 times.  The first titled owner was O'Neal Funeral Home, the second owner was Arrdeen Vaughan and he has owned the car for over 40 years where it was kept in a private collection. It is titled to us and we have copies of the previous titles.

It carried the President and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy from Parkland Memorial Hospital to the airport at Love Field as the entire world stopped in its tracks and watched in shock, horror and disbelief.  It not only carried away the President for the last time, it signified the end of the age of innocence, the end of Camelot, and the end of so many hopes and dreams for one of the most beloved Presidents of all time.  Upon arrival at Air Force One, Vice-President Johnson was sworn into office and became the new President of the United States.  The O'Neal Funeral Home supplied the casket and their new hearse for this unprecedented event.  It was sold a few years later to another funeral home (Vaughan) to be kept in a private collection where it has been for over 40 years.  This is truly a unique opportunity to acquire a moment in time that defined an entire generation and beyond.

Aubrey Rike worked for the O'Neal Funeral Home and was the driver of this car that fateful day in 1963.  The O'Neal Funeral Home had the contract with Parkland Memorial Hospital for both the hearse and ambulance service.  Aubrey Rike had spent much of his life lecturing nationwide and wrote a book about his role along with this Cadillac from his perspective called "At the Door of Memory".  Aubrey Rike Passed away in 2010 and unfortunately I never had the chance to reunite Mr. Rike with the hearse that changed both his life and American history.   

I did have the opportunity to meet with the director of the 6th floor museum at Dealey Plaza which is the largest museum focused on the assassination of President John F Kennedy and is located in the 6th floor of the Texas book depository where Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shot from.  While on my trip to Dallas I registered the hearse at motor vehicle and the famous WC*609 license plates have current 2011 Texas registration stickers and has the plate number listed on the title as well just to add even more pedigree to the lineage of this hearse.
