About the Curator of HearseForSale.org
I can vividly recall the first time I laid eyes on a hearse. I was only 8 years old, riding to church with my family, when I noticed a unique vehicle driving alongside us. Curiosity got the best of me, and I turned to my dad and asked, “What kind of car is that?”. Little did I know, it was a hearse. I immediately exclaimed, “I want a hearse!”. My dad quickly responded, “Hearses are used to carry dead people to their graves! You can’t have a hearse!”. However, my fascination with hearses persisted as I grew older. I embarked on a journey to find a hearse for sale, dreaming of making my first car a hearse. The allure of owning a hearse and the endless possibilities it presented captivated me. I reached out to mortuaries, visited numerous locations, and scoured the web for hours on end until, finally, in 1998, I stumbled upon a hearse collector in Long Beach, California. This collector had a dozen hearses available for sale, and one stood out to me – a 1959 Cadillac Superior 3 Way Coach. Unsurprisingly, that hearse was not for sale. I ultimately purchased a 1978 Cadillac S&S Coach, which had a striking blue-gray exterior, a blue interior, and that distinctive “hearse” smell.
Before I even acquired my hearse, I encountered skepticism from friends who believed special licenses were necessary to drive a hearse. However, that is not the case, and it is important to note that it’s “hearse”, not “hurst” or “hearst” (common misspellings or mispronunciations!). Furthermore, there are no legal restrictions on anyone owning a hearse. Unfortunately, just two days after becoming the proud owner of my beautiful hearse, it was rear-ended, causing extensive damage to the rear bumper and rendering the vehicle ‘totaled’.
Although the damage resulted in a total loss of the hearse, the silver lining was that hearses do not have a Blue Book value. Being custom-built by funeral homes, their worth is not easily determined. The settlement I received for the original hearse allowed me to purchase a white 1976 Cadillac Superior Combination/Limo Style Hearse. This particular hearse had jump seats, a glass partition, removable panels, and a vintage gurney. I cherished that Cadillac hearse, but unfortunately, due to financial constraints (gas prices exceeding $500 per month in 1999), I had to sell it.
I truly do miss my 1976 Cadillac Superior Hearse…
