Hearse Used After JFK Slain In Dallas: $160,000

DALLAS (AP) - A white hearse used to transport President John F. Kennedy's body following his assassination in Dallas has sold at auction for $160,000.

The 1964 Cadillac was purchased by Stephen Tebo, a collector and real estate developer from Boulder, Colo., who has property in Dallas. The vehicle was offered Saturday by Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that O'Neal Funeral Home used the hearse to transport a bronze casket to Parkland Memorial Hospital on Nov. 22, 1963, after the shooting. The hearse also was used to transport the casket, with JFK's body, to Love Field for the flight to Washington.

The funeral home in 1968 sold the hearse to Ardeen Vaughan of Alvarado. Tebo says he'll eventually put the hearse on display.
