Photographic slide of the FBI/Secret Service reenactment of the Kennedy assassination in Dealey Plaza on May 24, 1964. The car representing the president's limousine heads west on Elm Street, toward the triple underpass.

The car used to represent the president's limousine in the reenactment was actually the Secret Service car that had been directly behind the presidential limousine in the motorcade on November 22, 1963.

The driver in this picture, Secret Service agent George Hickey, rode in the follow-up car at the time of the assassination.

The north side of Dealey Plaza is visible to the right. Signs directing traffic to Stemmons Freeway and other highway signs line the right side of the road.

Robin,

Do you happen to know if Forrest V. Sorrels is in any of these reenactment photos?

Thanks,

Nice photos, Robin. Thank you.

Of course, the Queen Mary II Cadillac used in the re-enactment had different measurements than SS-100-X, which had been conveniently shipped out of DC to be stripped down to metal and rebuilt as a bulletproof limo for LBJ.

Hi Thomas.

I don't recall seeing Sorrells name mentioned.

Only Hickey who was driving the Queen Mary during the Re-Enactment.

While i was looking through the 6th floor museum images i noticed this.

Quote:

Tom Dillard image shows the interior of the empty presidential limousine, ready for the Kennedys and the rest of their party to arrive at Love Field and begin their motorcade tour of Dallas.

At far left is Dallas Morning News chief photographer Jack Beers and the tall man beyond the car is Secret Service agent George Hickey.

Dillard image below that i purchased from Corbis ( Half size version )
