LBJ’s Presidential Limousine
The President's limousine is on display in our lobby and is one of the first exhibits visitors will experience. This custom built Black Stretch Limousine was used by President Lyndon Johnson beginning in 1968 while he was in Austin, Texas. Weighing 5,100 pounds, the limousine is equipped with a TV, telephone, and reserve gas tank. There is a specially designed communication system within the car for contact with the Secret Service. However, the vehicle is not armored, bullet-proof or bomb-proof. Click the first image to view the entire slideshow.
