Halloween Hearse: 1966 Cadillac S & S Hearse

Happy Halloween, everyone! Here’s one (just one!) from Scotty G for today’s holiday; I promise not to go overboard. Speaking of going overboard, this 1966 Cadillac Hearse is from the “Queen Mary’s Shipwreck” promotion so it’s in Huntington Beach, California. It’s listed on eBay with a Buy It Now price of $3,300 – a drop-dead deal!

This is an S & S Hearse conversion and it’s a “double-loader”, meaning that there is a side door in addition to the usual rear door for making things as easy as possible during thee hardest possible time for most people. The electric coffin table works great! There’s a new battery and it has a rebuilt engine and transmission, headers, and it’s also been lowered for a more sinister look, if that’s even possible. There are no photos of the engine, unfortunately but they say that it has never left them stranded in 15 years. The coffin can be included for an additional $300! That’s a heck of a deal.. which I never thought I’d say about a coffin.

The interior will need a bunch of work if a person was thinking of restoring this one, although I’m not quite sure why they would. But, I’m not one to put down anyone’s automotive passion and I know that there are actually hearse collectors out there! If there was ever a cooler interior fabric I don’t know what it would possibly be, this pattern is killer! This hearse even has a fogger on it for creating even more of that creepy aura that so many Halloween and/or hearse lovers are in to. There is some rust work to fix on this ride and lots of interior work, but it sounds like the drivetrain has been solidified, so to speak, so you can drive it while you’re fixing it up. I have no clue what the actual shipping cost would be for something like this. I clicked on the U-Ship link and it spun for quite a while before coming up with $836 in shipping to Minnesota, which of course is cheaper than it would cost to ship a Yugo here (now that’s really scary!), so that’s not correct. What would this look like on a car transport heading across the country? Weird and scary. Are there any hearse collectors out there?

    I briefly had a ’68 Victoria Coach in my youth. My girlfriend refused to ride in it, and called me a ghoul. A fresh coat of black paint, & I sold it to a funeral home looking for a vintage last ride. They were Irish, & promptly painted it AGAIN, in Emerald Green.

    Decent old coach, but I don’t like them being treated like that. You can blame the Ghostbusters craze on that.

    This Victoria is not a “double-loader”. It’s a three-way coach.

    In our area KCMO we have a Halloween car show every year which was last Saturday and it’s the last big car show of the year and we get around 300 to 400 cars. This would be a great show stopper there. Here’s a picture of one entry.

    This needs to be fixed up to be a newer style companion to the Munster Coach, upholstery done to match and the engine chromed.

    Thanks, Gerald. Now I am going to hum that Munster’s theme song every time I scroll past this car.
