1947 Pontiac Hearse
I've got a more recent vid that doesnt show up in the searches, I dont know why. This is a video of my 1947 Pontiac Hearse, made by the Superior Hearse Corp. It is a landaulet. My wife and I bought this for our first wedding anniversary, (Awwwww!) That was 6 years ago. Thats the babe in the video, btw. Nobody apparently knows how many (of the hearse) were made as the records were apparently destroyed in a fire. The best estimate I got was under 75 from "the oldest person we could find" that was working at Superior a few years ago. The car was a total disaster when we got it, but fortunately most of the parts were there, even if they were not attached. "Hey" I thought, "How hard could it be to find another bumper for a hearse???" I bought this car because I didn't know how to work on cars and was sick of paying people 120$ an hour (while getting screwed in the process. ) to do things to my car that I could learn how to do myself. I figured that I could buy a car that I would enjoy working on instead of waiting till my daily driver breaks down and I have to fix it under pressure. Doesnt that sound like a good idea?!? Hah hah hah! I am largely self taught. We're nearly finished and are looking forward to cruising the streets looking for victims. Apply with photo.. ;-) If you know anything about the history of this car, or other cars like it, in any condition, please contact me. Special thanks go to; My grandmother, Kathy My Wife for all the help and patience The Guys at the 40's Pontiac UK board for answering a "tyreless" stream of stupid questions and patiently helping though the hard stuff. The ever-friendly staff at Santa Cruz Auto Parts for their help answering questions, sometimes several times, their enthusiasm and support. If you need someone that will help you make a vehicle look beautiful, they are it. You guys rock!
