Default 1964 Pontiac Superior Hearse For Sale

Not mine. I have no affiliation with the seller. Am familiar with the car due to https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sfg...de-3212137.php & I follow @grimrides on instagram. This morning she posted that the vehicle is for sale. Wanted to let members of this forum know.

Bright car, sharp. And yes you'll hear this, remove the side pipes.

One wonders were people get there facts. I did not realise that 64 was such a poor selling year for superior. Its a wonder they survived to build a 65.

You're right Ed. One has to wonder from where these people derive their information. Superior's sales from 1958 through 1965 were in an upward trajectory - increasing each year. In 1963 the company delivered 1,624 Cadillac and Pontiac-based vehicles. In 1964 there were 1,671 new Cadillac and Pontiac professional vehicles sold, built and delivered. In the record-breaking 1965 model year, Superior produced a total of 1,824 Cadillac and Pontiac funeral cars and ambulances. Superior sold and delivered 450 Pontiac coaches in 1963, 448 in 1964 and 500 in 1965. This doesn't indicate to me that the company was having hard times or that Pontiac sales had decreased in any substantial manner in 1964 - unless you count two less cars sold and built as being a substantial decrease. No, Superior was at that time the undisputed style and sales leader in the American professional vehicle industry. Again, one wonders where people get their "facts".

When one looks at the pictures you see why the pearls and base clear doesn't work on the older cars. The stright on side shot in the bright sun reflects each angle with a different color. As you go around it it looks like you painted each panel separate out of a different mix. The bigger flakes and the clear coat really bring it out.

Beautiful color, I do agree that the side pipes could probably be removed

It is a beautiful coach, but that is the first thing I would do, if it were my car.

Side pipes need to go, needs to be re-painted, needs new drapes.........
Like all of them, a long list of "needs"!
