We’re not sure why, but some guy ended up submitting the winning $132,000 bid on a 1963 Pontiac ambulance that supposedly carried the body of President John F. Kennedy after his assassination. The ambulance was auctioned off at the Scottsdale, Arizona Barrett-Jackson auction but the authenticity of the vehicle is still in question.
McKeel Hagerty, president of the collector car insurer Hagerty Insurance, said that the Pontiac Ambulance could have fetched a several hundred thousand more if there was no doubt that the vehicle actually carried JFK’s body.
The Barrett-Jackson organization said that it was amble to prove that the vehicle was indeed an authentic 1963 Pontiac Bonneville ambulance but was unable to prove that it ever carried Kennedy’s body.
“Based on all research and our conversations with experts around the country, we do not believe there is a person alive who can answer this question with certainty,” Barrett-Jackson said in a statement.
