Given the black paint on the door jam, the deep red crushed velvet interior, what is left of it, and the two cut outs in the floor at the rear, I would be more inclined to believing that this was a hearse, or at best, a combination vehicle, as others have previously said. As for the grab bar at the back of the vehicle, that has me wondering when it was added, or if it originally served a different purpose. Possibly one of our more members with knowledge of the time period that this was built, will have some answers. It was not unusual for funeral homes to give old hearses to fire department for fire equipment cars, once they had served out there original purpose as a hearse, and were no longer needed for services. Back then, in the funeral business, it was all about perception, and a 10 year old hearse looked grossly dated, and to some it gave the impression that the funeral home wasn't doing well financially.
