Default 64 Hearse photo-FINALLY!!

WOW! I finally figured out how to do this! Thanks to aviator327 and all others.
For those who are interested, "Bonnie" has a 389 4 bbl. superhydramatic tranny, 73,000 mi. Made by Superior Coach. She was used for "removals" and not actual funeral use since it has no casket rollers in the rear and a slightly shorter wheelbase than a full size hearse; which is good because it probably would not have fit in the garage if longer!! I'll post some better photos soon. Hope you enjoy! Frank

Default Thanks for response!

Thanks! I found "Bonnie" on the Professional Car Society web site with a link to the Ohio chapter. The previous owner works for the mortuary that bought her brand new. They used it for body removals, flowers,etc. not funeral processions. They sold it to him around '97. Always well maintained and garaged. He had it for sale "make offer" and I went to see it and we worked out a deal. I got it for less than he wanted because he saw it would go to a good home. She needs some interior work, but the outside paint and chrome is incredible!! Built by Superior Coach about a week after JFK was buried in '63!
It is not my daily driver, although it is capable. I put new water pump, hoses, antifreeze on her. Needs new floorpans. Tooled around town a couple times and did a couple graveyard shots that I hope come out OK. Plan to fix it up some and put in local car shows, parades,etc. Frank
