Legendary Gangster Al Capone’s Bulletproof 1928 Cadillac For Sale

It’ll cost you a cool $1 million dollars though.

Capone’s 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan is on the market and it has only 1,111 miles on the odometer and the V8 was modified to boost its top speed to 110mph. It has one-inch-thick bulletproof glass windows all around. But that’s not all, the side windows can be cranked up, allowing a two-inch gap at the bottom for gunmen to shoot a submachine gun and the back window opens to allow rear-firing. Talk about an old-school mob ride.

The doors are plated with steel armor and the car features a police siren, police lights, and a police radio. Capone had the car painted in an identical color to the local law enforcement vehicles at the time, which made it that much more difficult to tell the difference between gangsters and officers.

Aside from the fact this car was owned by Capone, this Cadillac is one of the first armored cars known to have been made. Capone kept this Cadillac hidden away in a Chicago garage.

The original listing states the car was purchased from a sales agent in Chicago thought to have been selling the Cadillac for Al Capone. A family purchased the car intending to use it as a rolling exhibition to make money, but the plan fell through. So the infamous Cadillac then lived a quiet life in the Niagara Falls Antique Auto Museum through the 1960s before heading on to other museums.
