'Parkland' Movie Cars to Be Auctioned in Dallas Nov. 23

Cars custom built for assassination day movie



    Two cars custom built for the historical film "Parkland" will hit the auction block next Saturday.

    The movie, which opened in limited release in October, recounts the events around and after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas.

    Two of the cars used in the film, a 1963 Lincoln Continental used as the presidential limousine and a 1956 Cadillac limousine serving as a Secret Service follow-up car, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Saturday at Market Hall at Dallas Market Center.

    Coincidentally, perhaps, the Trade Mart at Dallas Market Center was the original destination of Kennedy's motorcade before being diverted to Parkland Memorial Hospital following the shooting in Dealey Plaza.

    Aside from the two cars used in the film, Leake Auction Company will also be auctioning off 598 other cars over the Nov. 22-24 weekend. Admission is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and military with an ID and $7 for kids under 12.
