Default spotted in a parking lot...

Hi Everyone!

A friend in Florida took this photo and sent it to me figuring I would find it interesting, and of course he was right!!
As most of you can identify, this is a 1969 S&S Victoria 3-Way hearse (that is if "I" am identifying it properly!!) looks like well worth restoring, seems to be sitting with no rear license plate??
What I find interesting is the forward roof treatment. I do not know if you can see it in the picture without enlarging it. I have seen half roofs and such before but this one is inboard of the drip rails by a few inches above the rear side doors before it goes across the top. I don't recall seeing one like this before, was this done when built or maybe sometime afterwards??
anyway, just thought it was interesting and figured I would share!!

That coach I believe belongs to Jen & Nick Mullins, and was shown at the 2012 International Meet. Even though it has suicide doors on the sides, it is described as being an end loader.

Paul, what the Hell is that all about? Never mind, I really don't care to get in the middle of a love story.

Dont recall ever seeing this type of roof treatment, but that dont mean it was not done. Also the car was originaly grey or silver. S&S always color coded the landau bars the same as the body.

Welllllll, here is the photo I took of Jen Mullins' car at the Daytona meet. Clearly, it's not the same car that's in Dana's photo. The Mullins' car is a '69 S&S, but it doesn't have the same roof treatment, and has standard (not suicide) doors.

So we still don't know about the one in Dana's photo. It might indeed be a 3-way.
