If you’re a typical law-abiding person, you might not want a way to become more intimately connected with one of the most notorious gangsters of all time, Al Capone. However, if you’re interested in history or true crime, you should check out a classic Cadillac that hit the market. For the low, low price of just $1 million, you can own Al Capone’s custom, bulletproof 1928 Cadillac Town Sedan.

For a closer look, you can head to the Cadillac’s listing on Capone’s Town Sedan boasts a fair number of features that we can safely assume weren’t there when it rolled off the assembly line. To begin with, the windows are made of one-inch-thick bulletproof glass, and the doors are plated with steel armor.

In addition to being able to brush off bullets like a diligent valet brushes away dust, the side windows can be rolled up — not down like regular windows — to open up a two-inch slot through which backseat passengers could stick the barrels of their Tommy guns. The rear window opens as well, most likely for the same reason.

If that’s not enough, Capone also made sure that his Cadillac would be a remarkable middle-finger to law enforcement. It sported flashing police lights, a police siren, and a police radio scanner. As one final dig, he had it painted in the precise black and green color scheme used by the Chicago Police Department at the time.

If the condition of the car is as important to you as its legacy, you can rest easy knowing that it only has 1,111 miles on the odometer, was recently detailed, and lists the condition of all interior and exterior features as “good.”

And, as with any reliable pre-owned vehicle, it comes with a clear title. You can check the sale listing for more information.
