Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 12, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, December 12, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 NEW SUPER LIMOUSINE Trudeau car cost OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau has a new car. It cost more than is equipped with armor plating and bullet-proof glass and has two telephones. The car is his alone. Except in the most unusual circum- stances he will not have to lend it to the Queen or anyone else. Because it is silver grey it probably will become known as the grey ghost or silver dart as it carries the prime minister about in super safety. The 1975 Cadillac Fleetwood appeared this week when the prime minister met the prime minister of Iran who arrived Monday for a six-day visit. It replaces another Fleet- wood, acquired for in June last year. This simple basic black car will go into spare status, being used for visiting Very Impor- tant Persons, such as the Queen, and by the Trudeaus in the unlikely event the new one breaks down or needs repairs. Both vehicles are owned by the RCMP a degree- built to its specifications. Last year the force insisted on this for the prime minister's better protection. Until now the prime minister has had to lend his limousine to visiting dignitaries while he used a simple police car. He mentioned his trans- portation problem in an elec- tion campaign speech in Alberta: "It's not my idea, driving through life with an armored Caddy, like a tank, that I lend to the Queen when she com- es." An official of the Privy Council office acknowledged that the vehicle is built like a tank and would probably get no more than eight miles to the gallon. When the prime minister heard he was to get a new car he said he wanted to know what options were available. He decided to get away from basic black and a vinyl roof, but an official said the new car has only the standard options. However, it does have its own communications system. One telephone hooks into the public telephone system and the other the police radio. The car is equipped so it can be plugged into any police radio in any locality in the country. The official said he does not know exactly yet how much the vehicle cost. But he said with inflation and all it probably will cost more than the last one.
