Description
This car is 1 of 3 fully armored Presidential Parade Series cars. This is the only one in private hands as the other two are still owned by the US government. One car is still retained by the US Secret Service and the other is on display at the William Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, AR. The car is 270″ long, on a wheelbase of 167.5″, the roof is raised 3″ from standard to maximize visibility of the Head of State. At night, a special fluorescent Halo lighting system aids occupant visibility.  The modifications are extensive, and add significantly to the weight of the car, requiring a unique chassis and drivetrain. The engine is a hand-built 454 cid by Jack Roush made specifically for this car. This car weighs over 12000 lbs. and is fully armored and blast proof to level B6 standards with an onboard oxygen system, fire suppression system, run-flat tire inserts, Federal Signal emergency lights, siren, and public address system. This vehicle has never been owned by the US Government. Less than 500 original miles on the car. **MAY NOT BE EMISSIONS COMPLIANT IN ALL 50 STATES**
