Good Day.... Can someone, please, recommend (or privately
email/send message) where I can locate a precisely scaled schematic
of the 1956 Cadillac DeVille convertible (nicknamed the "Queen Mary")
that the Secret Service was driving behind President KENNEDY in
Dallas on 11-22-63? (the car was originally brought into U.S.
government service as President EISENHOWER's presidential
limousine)

Thank You, very much, for your time and help.

Best Regards

I have looked and found a total lack of information. If you can find out the name of the Limo Conversion Company; Perhaps: Syaers & Scovil (Also called S & S), Miller-Meteor (M & M), Superior... That's all I can think of off the top of my head that were big in that time period. I have the addresses and numbers of the Limo and Hearse conversion companies. that might give me something to go on... I enjoy a challenge. Thanks for the opportunity.

These two White House security Cars were built by Hess & Eisenhardt of Cincinnati, OH. I doubt you will find schemtics for them anywhere (Government security). They were built on the regular Cadillac commercial chassis with a wheelbase of 158". You can read all about these cars in my "Cadillac Database" [ www.car-nection.com/yann/Dbas_txt/prof56.htm ].
