Baler returns Manuel Quezon’s ride for presidential car museum‎: Aquino’s SUV is next

Jul 14, 2016 @ 17:20

The local government of Baler, Aurora has returned the presidential limo of former President Manuel L. Quezon to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP)‎.

Quezon’s ride, a 1937 Chrysler Airflow, was brought to Baler as the centerpiece of the Quezon museum ‎during the town’s 400th year celebration in 2009.

In a report by Philippine Information Agency’s ‎Joselito S. Libranda‎, NHCP Executive Director Ludovico Badoy said: “We intend to include it in the display of the planned Presidential Car Museum at the Quezon City Memorial Circle.”

“Quezon’s car would undergo conservation treatment prior to its inclusion in the display,” Badoy said.

Quezon’s Chrysler was restored by Alfred Nobel R. Peres of the Vintage Car Club of the Philippines.

Apart from Quezon, the planned museum will also showcase the rides of former Presidents Emilio Aguinaldo, Jose P. Laurel, Manuel Roxas, Elpidio Quirino, Ramon Magsasay, Ferdinand Marcos, Corazon Aquino, Fidel V. Ramos, Joseph Ejercito Estrada, and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

NHCP will also ask former President Benigno S. Aquino III to add his presidential vehicle to the museum.
