SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — An auction house specializing in collectible classic cars plans to auction the hearse used to carry the body of President John F. Kennedy from a Dallas hospital to Air Force Once.

In a statement issued Monday, Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. of Scottsdale, Ariz., announced a Jan. 21 auction of the 1964 Cadillac hearse.

O'Neal Funeral Home of Dallas used the hearse to bring a bronze casket to the hospital on Nov. 22, 1963, the day of Kennedy's assassination, then carried the casket containing the president's body to Love Field.

Earlier this year, Barrett-Jackson auctioned the ambulance used to carry the slain president's body from Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base to the Bethesda Naval Hospital.
