1966-68 Cadillac Hearse
 
I am finally in the market for a hearse. I am seeking a 1966-1968 Cadillac Hearse. My preference is 1968 (in love with the stacked headlights) but for the right car and price i could go above 68 (up to 76)

Im not looking to do a ton of restoration work, but i dont need it to have a pristine paint job. But i do know that owning a hearse means i will undoubtedly have to at some point do some work.

Im looking for something that runs decent, has a straight body and isnt completely rusted out. And i know sometimes that is asking alot.

Its only fair i tell you what i plan to do with it though. Rest assured i am not going to butcher it or mess with its physical integrity like so many sad projects.

First of all if its not black i will be repainting it (professionally, not one of those ugly self sprays).

I will then be having it "spot" wrapped, meaning rather than full wrap im going to apply several vinyl decals on the side. Thats really about it.

I own a christian metal internet radio station, and i hope to use it as an alternative outreach tool at conventions, possibly one day even at hearsecon. No it wont be a vomit-inducing Jesus-mobile. I do have mockup pictures and have had 13 years to plan it, just never had the money till now.

A friend in Southern Minnesota has this '68 M-M and may be interested in selling it. Let me know if it is one that you would like more info on.

Thanks Kurt I would absolutely be interested in more information on this one. I see theres alot of parts in the back. Hopefully the laundaus are back there. Looks to be in pretty good shape.

I'd like to see pics from a few more angles if possible.

Also would like to know if it runs and how well, and on a deeper level how the rust situation is.

The landau bars are in the back. I will connect you with the owner. No sense in my being in the middle of it.

Blake, you may already know, but the 1965 Cadillacs have the same headlight configuration and similar styling as the 66, 67 and 68 Cadillacs... if you need to widen your search...

Daniel, that looks good. I may be interested. I may have to give you a call. I dont own a trailer so my main concern is whether it would be sound enough to drive from Cali to Oklahoma

Almost any car that you purchase that is of that vintage, isn't safe to drive across country, until it is serviced and all systems checked and / or replaced. Unless you are very mechanically inclined, you should have it delivered, rather than gambling on a cross country trek with a 50+ year old car.
