It sounds like this coach has found a new home within our group!! I will let the new owner tell you all about it when his deal is secure.

Sent a deposit ,so should be a done deal. I have transport lined up but might be a few months. Owner said no problem sitting there until then but would like to get it moved as quickly as possible. I have some options to chk on in the AM and may be can get it moved sooner. If anyone knows of transport in the Grants Pass Oregon area and that would come to So Cal please let me know. Thanks
And a big thanks to Kurt for the post.:thankyou2::thankyou2:

Should be down by this weekend. Big thanks to Huey Wick for taking the time to go up and grab it. It almost was on its way to being a band vehicle. I have a few to many and either the 65 Crown will be sold or this to fund other projects and make room . Once the 72 Olds is done I will be putting it up for sale also . Can not save them all but this was hard to pass up. Need to get a title and few other things so when I get to that put I will offer them up here and see if I have any takers and go from there.

I'll take the 1962 Buick Electra 225 Limo (By Flxible) off your hands, and give it a good home.:thumbsup:

Some paper work was sent ahead of the car, looks like a pretty early 64.

that is interesting the owner brought the chassis and had it drop ship to Eureka. I knew most of the small players would do it either way they furnished the car or you furnished the car. no reason Eureka would do it that way either. one would wonder if the nose came painted in your color choice or not. you'll have to check the engine number to see if they got there chassis or someones elses. but in GM's 2 mouth of production they have run out 32 all ready.

That card would have been supplied to Eureka with the chassis, and when the chassis was completed with the new body, if Eureka knew who the purchaser of completed vehicle was going to be they would fill in the buyers information. If the vehicle was going to a Eureka dealership for inventory, then the name on the card would be filled in by the selling Eureka dealership, with the new owners name. I am assuming that Cadillac Motor Division, would only sell the bare chassis to body builders that they approved of. This assumption comes from the fact that Jack Pinner told me that they couldn't purchase Cadillac commercial chassis from their local Cadillac dealership, and they had to purchase completed standard production Cadillac's and then convert them into funeral coaches.

..... and to think that it's last owner or another prospective new owner may very well have thrown all of that documentation in the trash along with the table itself!

Have not had a chance to clean it out , had to come up with 2 cc wheels and 2 hub caps and a set of tires. Pulled the door lock cylinder had keys made from it .Got lucky as the original ignition tumbler is still in it ,so I now have ignition and door keys and was able to unlock the rear door .

Now that is truly amazing...mimeographed instructions created right there at the Eureka factory and schematic drawings which I would be surprised if they weren't created by Eureka Engineer Walt Cassens, may he rest in peace!!

Congratulations on a fantastic save Dan! I don't think there is any question in that Eurekas had the most beautiful interiors of any coach built while they were in business!

What's behind door #1

There is a cover at the very rear with latches ,wondering what that was about. It is a access panel for the pump motor and in the cover was a pouch that held almost a 3x5 diagram of the table .

that rear sill is the same as this 58 we are trying to get together.

I would be really interested in either the 65 or the 72. I live in northern Florida, any idea of what shipping would cost fro, your location?

This is the kind of restoration work I find most satisfying, removing years of grime and revealing the former luster - Preserving originality rather than re-doing everything.
Eureka chrome cleans up very nicely in most cases, thanks to their use of triple-plated bronze hardware throughout!

It's truly amazing how unmolested and intact this car is. Very few 3-Way coaches have survived complete with all the paperwork.

Keep up the great work Dan, it's wonderful to see this car coming back to life in a matter of days!!:thumbsup:

After weighing all the options I will be selling the 72 C/B and 64 Eureka once I get a title and do some more check out on the 64 . You can shoot me a PM or give me a call at 760-247-3693 .If I miss the call, leave a message and I will get back to you. I have used a friend Leo@1-602-509-7720 for towing give him a call for a quote. Location from here is Apple Valley Ca 92308 Thanks

Just noticed. It's a car with factory (Cadillac) air-conditioning! Now, that's rare on a commercial chassis of this particular vintage.Hope it can be made to work once again. What a wonderful, well preserved example of a fairly rare vehicle. The hardest part of this restoration will be finding the proper interior fabrics and materials to re-trim the seat, door panels and casket compartment.

Also has levelizer. Pump and switches are there but the rams and oil tank are missing.
