ᗩᒪ ᑕᗩᑭOᑎᕮ’S ᗷᑌᒪᒪᕮT-ᑭᖇOOᖴ 1928 ᑕᗩᗪIᒪᒪᗩᑕ
Nearly 100 years after his gangster heyday Al Capone’s name still gets pulses racing.A bullet-proof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan that belonged to the infamous mobster prior to his 1932 incarceration is currently up for sale.
Of course, if you want to get your hands on the historic car in addition to its nefarious roots, its also believed to be the oldest surviving armored vehicle prepare to cough up $1,000,000.
The Cadillac’s armor protection may be its most impressive attribute. While it no longer features the 3,000 pounds of asbestos wrapped steel plating it once did, it still features nearly inch thick glass throughout the vehicle.

Thanks armeek. I’ve lived long enough to remember those old cars..not THAT old, but so old that a bent fender got no filler. They were so thick that they were beat out almost completely smooth, and finished with a grinder, file, and sandpaper. I did a few like that. Of course no self respecting Rolls owner would put plastic filler in his car, even now. No masking tape…either….until 1925. Absolute works of art. Better than the Mona Lisa. Every city should have an extensive auto museum.
Well said my friend…If you are ever in Montreal I have a few rides from the hay day you might enjoy….Stay healthy.
