Default '11 Hunt: '36 Siebert & '48 Packard

I don't always scout coaches that need work. Earliest Siebert Ford I've had the pleasure of viewing in person. Since it is displayed with a casket and I didn't know how that would go over here...



Before restoration:



The '48 is 100% original, unrestored(!) that runs/drives:

since this web site is not a PCS meet who cares if it has a box in back. none of us are that sensitive. the no casket rule is for displaying a car at a PCS event. how you want to run aroud town with a car is your busness. these are two sharp a set of cars not to share

Default Red light?

Is the Ford a straight hearse? Just curious about the red light on the bumper...

The museum is under renovation. '36 was purchased be Seagle Brothers Funeral Service to replace its 1907 horse-drawn funeral coach. When this combination was in ambulance form, it was the first to serve Pulaski, VA. Retired and sold in '53. The late Oscar Seagle (son), purchased the coach in '90 before restoring and showing at the PCS Pittsburgh meet in '94 - where it took a 1st place in class for combinations.

Funny enough, there are no indicators currently (other than bumper mounted red light) that this coach is anything but a straight end loader. There is a removable panel that goes over the rollers for ambulatory use not on display.

The Siebert is on loan to the museum. My understanding is that it can be available through proper channels. Other than needing exterior paint refreshed to show, the rest has held up very well.

Additional shots of Packard.




Cunningham is an 1895 model. I particularly enjoyed the detail - and ice compartments under floor for ice to preserve body.
