A favorite of President Roosevelt, the 1939 Lincoln Presidential Parade Vehicle was dubbed the “Sunshine Special” for its convertible top. Built by Ford Motor Company and modified to government specs by Brunn & Company, the limo was originally equipped with a siren, running lights, a 2-way radio, extra-wide running boards, and grab handles for Secret Service agents. A 414-cubic inch, L-head V-12, that produced 150 horsepower, propelled the vehicle. In 1942, it was updated with a new grille. Safety concerns led to armor plating for the doors, bulletproof tires, and storage compartments for submachine guns. With these modifications, the vehicle’s weight ballooned to 9,300 pounds. In spite of these concessions to safety, the President preferred to ride in this limo with the top down on most ceremonial occasions. After Roosevelt’s death, the limo remained in the fleet and was occasionally used by President Truman until 1948.
