Wilson’s Presidential Limousine

Like Taft before him, President Wilson also favored automobiles over horse drawn carriages. While there are many images of Wilson in carriages, he was particularly fond of the Pierce-Arrow limousine that awaited him when he returned from negotiating the Treaty of Versailles. It received its finishing touches in June 1919, and was the 120th of the Series 51 model. Friends of Wilson purchased the car for him when he left office in 1921, and you can still see it today at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library in Staunton, Va.
