BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – A piece of presidential history arrived in Colorado on Wednesday.

The hearse that carried John F. Kennedy’s body after he was assassinated is the newest addition to Stephen Tebo’s private car collection.

Late Wednesday afternoon Tebo took delivery on the 1964 Cadillac. He then drove it into the building in Longmont where he keeps his collection of 400 cars.

The Boulder real estate developer paid $176,000 for the famous Cadillac Miller-Meteor. The collector says he, like many Americans, vividly remembers Kennedy’s assassination, and later watching the images of the president’s body being moved in the hearse.

“To be able to own this as a piece of history like that is very amazing for me,” Tebo said.

The Kennedy hearse will join other famous vehicles, including many that were owned by famous people or featured in Hollywood movies.
