Walt, the Tour Guide, in a Horseless Carriage

From a vintage publicity photo:

6/8/64—ANAHEIM, CALIF.: President Savepalli Radhakrishnan of India appears to be enjoying his tour of Disneyland as he is driven through the famous amusement center by his host, Walt Disney (R). The 74-year-old Indian leader is on a three-day visit to this area.

The last time I saw this vehicle was about 2 years ago; it was on display in Fantasyland for the D23 One Year Anniversary event.

Unfortunately, the fringed top was nowhere to be seen.

I believe there were several of these machines. I remember seeing them back stage.
