It is there. Second one in the listing. Not yet available. Coming soon.

No photo posted yet.

Doug lists them as he is getting them ready to sell.
He goes over them before selling them.

It says BLUE interior. That's enough to not look any further for me.

Sounds like a great car otherwise.

It has a gray blue shade interior ,it actually looks fine not a bright blue at all. Now if I could convince some to buy my 65 I would have a space for the 69.:)

I feel like this might be the 69 Superior that was for sale in Massachusetts recently. If so then yes its very nice. I was interested in it but it was slightly out of my price range.

I do have one picture of it on my phone. But then again it may not be that car

This is a ca coach. Has been with the second owners from about 1974.

Doug recently contacted me, asking if I'd be interested in this hearse. As always, he provided an extremely thorough description and some nice photos. Upon learning that I'm not interested in this one, he asked if I'd help spread the word, so here are some photos.

Wow that is superb. I'm afraid to ask what hes asking. I have no doubt that will sell fast.

If you are buying one to "use" for anything other than hauling caskets, you will not want a 3-way. 3-ways are not very good haulers. If you would even consider taking the table out, you are on the wrong site and you will not want to mention it on this site.

Im not interested in this hearse, just noting that it looks very nice. And i have no intentions of removing the table in any hearse i buy. Im all for keeping it original, all im adding is a door decal

This coach obviously spent a fair amount of time outside, based on the numerous water stains and fading on the upholstery. The drapes must have gotten bad enough to where they were taken out.

Darren Bedford

The water stains could be from washing it a lot too as over time the coaches seem to leak a bunch. If it was washed often in use and they never dried them the water would sit and soak in. 3 ways may leak more than the others.

Sometimes it is possible to steam clean the water marks out but fixing the problem of them leaking is the solution in the long run.

Looks like nice paint for sitting out in the California sun.

I'm sure the description will tell if there are big issues. Doug is good at being fair and writes decent descriptions of the cars he sells.

Still to BLUE of an interior for me. I have one with a 3 tone blue. One with blue is all I can take.

Did you get a asking price from Doug ?

No. I suggest that anyone who is interested in purchasing the car contact Doug to discuss price.

Rocker moldings would really dress this coach up!

And get rid of that tint in the rear side and loading door windows!

I lost contact with Doug Scott when I retired to AZ back in 2007. When I lived in So. Cal. from 1989 until that time, I took many short trips to Burbank to see his various offerings of older procars, even though I was not in the market for another collector vehicle at that time.

We did purchase a few late model funeral coaches for our mortuaries from him over the years, and always found him to be honest in his descriptions, reasonable in his prices, and a pleasure to do business with. All of his newer coaches could have proudly been put back into service the same day they were delivered. He didn't deal in junk.

Doug Scott came all the way to Pennsylvania many years ago to purchase a 1941 Buick Limited division window limo from me. A beautiful original car I had known from childhood He put a tag on it and drove it away to Ca. those were the days no carriers. Very nice guy.

The interior sun fading is probably a bigger issue than the water stains.

If this had been anything other than a 3-way, it would be in my driveway by now! I've been sitting here for years waiting a nice '63/64 or '69/70 Superior landau Cadillac to come up for sale...

First and last I had an opportunity was two years ago on a combination in black primer that popped up on eBay. Was outbid when it started going passed reasonable price, as it became apparent the other bidder didn't care about spending the money (come to find out he showed up to buy it and low balled the seller with half the price claiming it was misrepresented and not worth it). The seller, ie sucker, caved and let it go. Found out last month the new owner has basically butchered and bagged it :(

It's been a while since I've seen anything that old on Doug's site! =)

When I bought my 1994 coach back in 2009 Doug had a 1973 Cadillac three-way and a 1976 Cadillac Limo style combo in stock ( Both were absolutely clean and looked as showroom perfect as a used car could be), but as I recall they were never on his website. I think some of his cars are advertised locally and perhaps on Autotrader.com or at least he used to. I still fondly think of that 76 and wish I had bought it at the time. I know the 73 had a potential buyer coming to look at it later that day.

I tried to buy the 76 M-M limo style, which was on the site. But I snoozed and loozed. I did buy my very first car ever from Doug. A '69 M-M Landau Traditional and had a very good experience.
