Hearse archival, NOT for sale:
1968 Cadillac Funeral Coach Superior Sovereign Landaulet Combination. This hearse has a clear NJ title, freshly printed this year. It runs very well, has four new tires, has been rehabbed, including carburetor rebuilt and tune up, rust repair in the rear quarter panels, extensive cleaning and painting, and an amateurish satin black paint job that could simply be touched up and left as-is for events. The hearse leaks transmission fluid as it sits in storage. You have to check the level before you drive it or it won’t move. It needs a new power steering pump reservoir, leaks from a bad weld on the filler neck. It has soft/weak brakes, likely due to a faulty master cylinder. I have determined that the master cylinder is a misapplication, not correct, lines exit right not left possibly a mismatch with the vacuum booster also. Update 4/25/17 An eBay member helped me with the right part number for the master cylinder, I ordered one last night and will have it this week. It does not have the two combo panels with the hearse bars; they are lost. This 1968 Cadillac Hearse has a sticky gas pedal, so you have to be mindful not to go blasting off into interstellar space by accident, especially without good brakes. I would love to take this hearse out for a real spin, but the brakes worry me. The rims on this combination hearse are likely from a truck and do not accept the hubcaps. I will grab four authentic Cadillac rims off the car at the salvage yard. Various eBay members say that the convertible wheels are riveted only, and not riveted + welded, so keep that in mind if you intend to do any jumps, stunt driving, or hauling too many coffins at once in this vehicle. The front windshield has a crack on the lower passenger corner. Would pass inspection here in PA, due to its age no inspection is required in many jurisdictions. I have not driven this hearse but 50 feet, from the alley to my garage. The hearse is 21 feet long and weighs about 5500 pounds. The garage door closes with an inch to spare. This Cadillac hearse would need a full restoration, including rust repair to the undercarriage, or used as it is as a Theater or Halloween prop. The funeral coach does look impressive and could be driven short distances to events.
