John Dillinger’s Getaway Car parked at IND Airport

Dillinger Getaway car at IND s

Thinking of getting away?

This 1933 Essex Terraplane (T8) was owned for short time in 1934 by the notorious criminal John Dillinger (Public Enemy Number One) and used as a getaway car until Dillinger and his brother, Hubert, crashed the car in a farm field.

Between September 1933 and July 1934, Dillinger and his gang went on a Midwest crime spree that included bank robberies, murders and jail breaks that turned the charismatic Dillinger into a folk hero.

Much of the ‘action’ took place in and around Indiana, so it’s somewhat appropriate that for the next few years the flashy car will be on display at the Indianapolis International Airport.

Look for it in the ticketing hall of the airport.
