    A white 1964 Lincoln Continental convertible used by President Lyndon B. Johnson has been put up for auction in Texas.

    Dan Kruse Classics has announced the March 3 sale of LBJ's personal vehicle, which the former president drove until his death in 1973.

    The auction will benefit the LBJ Foundation, which owns the luxury car.

    An auction spokeswoman said Tuesday that the convertible is currently on display at the Central Texas Museum of Automotive History, founded by collector Dick Burdick.

    The auction will take place at the museum in Smithville, located about 35 miles southeast of Austin.
