Beginning as station wagons from the likes of Ford, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick-and now the car of choice, Cadillac- and converted into emergency and professional service vehicles, professional cars have become recognized as visual icons. Having only commercial chaissis and the front and rear clips in common, each is unique with ornately carved pillars , body length windows , and custom mobile casket tables. Author Greg Merksamer compiles this photographic history of hearses, flower cars, service cars, ambulances, limousines, sedan ambulances and hearse-ambulance combos. More than 500 clear, large photos on over 300 pages, along with technical specifications, pay tribute to the cars used in professional service and the coach makers who built them.
A must-have for any hearse owner/lover!
