Black and white negative of FBI reenactment of the Kennedy assassination in Dealey Plaza, May 24, 1964. Shows a close-up of the Secret Service officials in the car representing the president's limousine.

The car used to represent the president's limousine in the reenactment was actually the Secret Service car that had been directly behind the presidential limousine in the motorcade on November 22, 1963.

Faintly visible are two marks on the men representing Kennedy and Connally, marking where bullets supposedly struck. A crowd of onlookers is visible in the background.
