Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-1969): Lincoln Continental Convertible -- and a few others

Possibly the car most associated with LBJ, the long, white convertible often carried visitors for a tour of his Stonewall, Texas ranch. The ranch, now part of the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, houses the 37th president's blue Amphicar -- one of only 3,878 and the only "civilian amphibious passenger automobile ever to be mass produced," reports the National Park Service -- and his Jolly 500 Ghia, a gift from the Fiat Company.
