AL CAPONE'S CAR was at the forefront of armored car history, being one of the first built. It weighed 7,000 pounds and modified to run 110 mph (a stock, two-ton Caddy struggled to hit 100), Capone's Caddy had other special features such as regulation police siren and radio to help his henchmen breeze through traffic and evade the law.
HERE IS A RECREATION OF THE FAMOUS BULLET PROOF AL CAPONE CAR
Born in 1899 in Brooklyn, New York, to poor immigrant parents, Al Capone went on to become the most infamous gangster in American history. In 1920 during the height of Prohibition, Capone's multi-million dollar Chicago operation in bootlegging, prostitution and gambling dominated the organized crime scene. Capone was responsible for many brutal acts of violence, mainly against other gangsters. The most famous of these was the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in 1929, in which he ordered the assassination of seven rivals.
