Yep, that's Harry S Truman's car. Parked outside in the detached garage is the car that Truman purchased six months before he died, a 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal. Truman had his license plate from the presidency “5745” – the number for V.E. Day on May 7, 1945 – transferred to the car. #linkinbio

From the Collection: This demitasse is one of a set of twelve given to President Truman in appreciation for his assistance to the German people by the Mitterteich Chinaware Factory of Bavaria in 1951. Truman initiated the Berlin airlift in June 1948 after Soviet forces cut supply routes for goods to and from West Berlin. The airlift successfully delivered
2.3 million tons of supplies to the area over one year.
