Barrett-Jackson Auction Co says the 1964 Cadillac hearse will go under the hammer on January 21.

O'Neal Funeral Home of Dallas used the hearse to bring a bronze casket to the hospital on November 22 1963, the day of President 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 president's body from Air Force One at Andrews Air Force Base to the Bethesda Naval Hospital.
