The Classic Cadillac Forum Discussion, Capone's '28 Armored Cadillac for sale in Past Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; Supposedly, Al Capone's 1928 Cadillac for sale today...Click the link for the story.
If they want a half a mil for that they better have some good documentation not a bunch of believed to have and rumored to have.
"While there is no paperwork or other evidence clearly tying this vehicle to Capone, RM Auctions president Ian Kelleher said he's sure this really was Capone's car." (from the website) even if it wasn't owned by capone, it's still pretty awesome and unique regardless. also probably worth what it's going for.

"If you want to cut through city traffic, and you don't mind breaking the law to do it, impersonating an officer is probably your best bet.
So this car was painted in the same green and black color scheme as 85 other Cadillacs that were supplied to Chicago police and city officials. It also had flashing red lights behind the grill, a regulation police siren and a police-band radio." (from the website)... so it probably did blend in pretty well...
