Default For Sale: 1949 Superior Landaulet Combination Car

For Sale: 1949 Superior landaulet style combination car,
an unusual style with very limited production. Superior manufactured 625 of the total of 2,853 professional cars manufactured by all of the professional car builders in 1949. This vehicle is not restored but a very well preserved original that has been refreshed as necessary. I purchased this vehicle in 1990 in Florida. The body was then stripped and painted. The work done has been documented with photographs. Much chrome has been replated. The engine has been rebuilt. The interior of the driverís compartment has been redone with the exception of the headliner and the door panels. The interior of the casket compartment is about 95% original and nice. As a combination car, it should have a removable attendant seat. The seat is missing, however I recently learned of the location of one which is available for sale. The rear compartment would also have had a removable carpet which snapped in when in use. This carpet is long gone, however the snaps are in place in the floor. The car, known as Morticia, runs and drives very well with her three speed standard transmission and 331ci OHV V8. Having retired from funeral service last year, I believe it is now time to pass her on to another custodian, hopefully in PCS and hopefully so she can continue to be used on occasion for the purpose for which she was built. Please call me at 860-428-7639 (prior to 9:00pm Eastern) for a full description and details. Price $37,500.00. Paul Cichon.

Beautiful car Paul. I also wish it a good new home. Would be a strong addition to a funeral home fleet.

It would've had two attendant seats.

I have had the privilege of seeing this beautiful car in person. The only way I can describe it is that it is breathtaking. I would love to own this car, but I already have one vehicle and that is enough.
It would cost a lot more to find one and bring it to this level, Good luck with the sale. I hope it gets a good home.

What a shock to see this car for sale knowing how much the owner adores the car.

The car is stunning and well taken care of.

Amazing for almost 70 years old.

Wow,
Darren

The 1494 model number in the Superior book designates it as a straight endloading hearse also. But the rear heat, mounts for attendant seats, snaps for floor covering point to combo.

Paul, I would be interested in seeing the fixed chair style attendant seat though, I need one for my 49 S&S
