1967 CADILLAC S&S VICTORIA LANDAU HEARSE We spend nearly 8-14 hours a day constantly searching for really nice , original Classic Funeral Coaches. I actually discovered this Funeral Car about 4 years ago but, after 5 repeated tries to buy it finally gave up. There’s an old saying ‘Nothing Lasts Forever” and, that was the case here: on a whim, I made one last shot and bought the car. This soon to be 48 year old Funeral Coach is- one of a handful OF ‘67 Cadillac S&S Landau Endloader Hearses that still exist, especially in this amazing condition …a very nice, rust-free, 35,500 mile two-owner car that was always garage kept, undercover. Custom built for a Northern PA. Funeral Home by Hess and Eisenhardt , the colors were carefully chosen in a conservative theme. It is finished in it’s original Cadillac color- called “Summit Grey Iridescent” with matching Upholstery in Shades of Gray. The Interior is almost surreal…. in mint, original condition. It retains it’s origin Spare Tire and Jack , still in the box and it’s original Owners Manual and S&S enclosures. The wheels and tires were replaced by the last owner with restored Cadillac Chrome Spoke Wheels and WWW Coker Tires but, due to many folks requesting- the wheels shown are not included, price was reduced and will be replaced with the HD Riveted original’s, appropriate tires and badged Hubcaps. The mileage is original and incredibly low at 35,587 with mileage statement by 2nd owner. It is a ‘Radio Delete’ model with all the usual Cadillac Amenities like Power Steering, Power Brakes, Manual Windows, Heater & Defroster, Reflectors, 3-Speed Wipers & Washers, Custom Heavy Chrome S&S Left Hand Rearview Mirror with Remote Control, Cigarette Lighter with Dual Ash Tray (looks unused), Electric Clock, Cornering Lights, Lights in the Coffin Chamber & Glove Box, excellent Padded Dash, mint Commercial Glass, AAA working “Exten’d Table” and Seatbelts with Retractors. We just contracted a now $10,200 professional paint in Glasurit, all new Brakes & Lines, Tune-Up, Engine Bay Detail, Rust-Proof “Crystaline” Crinkle Top and more. Options weren’t many on these but, this Coach carries an optional Cadillac ‘Firemist’ Color, WW Tires, Krinkle Finish Top, Soft Ray Glass, and, as mentioned: Pull-Out Casket Table. Built on the Commercial Chassis, with the large Commercial Glass Windows, the body carried the Cadillac redesigned Side Panel Contour created to ‘Look Longer’ and having a Lower Appearance. 1967 was the year Cadillac revised the Engine Valve Train and G.M. gave it a new, much improved Carburetor for Better Performance. She carries the 472 c.i. / 340 h.p. V8 w/Rear-Wheel- Drive and 3-Speed Automatic Transmission. The beautiful Hess & Eisenhardt (aka: Sayers & Scovill ) Models carried the Cycas Palm Leaf Funeral Emblem on the Interior, as well, as the Exterior Panels. The 2 pc. Airline Drapes, seen here, were Standard while the Swag Drapes were optional. Back then, you could choose from the Standard Vinyl Top, or Crinkle Top in two different Textures: “Sparkling” or “Crystaline”. It retains the original custom ‘Cadillac’ logo design rubber mats, which still look ‘new’. Priced $429 cheaper then the Crown Version, this model carries the Pull-Out Table, which extends another 24 ” out the rear of the Coach, which was only, an amazing, $186 extra. Only about 256 were ever built, for a grand total of 2,333 for ALL Commercial 158” built by all manufacturers on the Cadillac Chassis. Costing ‘NEW’ : $12,805 + the few options, would have made it exactly TWICE the cost of the 1967 Cadillac ‘Sixty-Special’ Sedan. Buy this 48 yr.old Classic Coach for $44,950. Probably one the Most beautiful Sculptured-Looking Cadillac Hearses of that period to leave the Blue Ash Rd. assembly line. add $4,000 for WWW Coker radials w/ Cadillac Chrome Wire Wheels.
