Janet Sumner and Laura Chavis, of Fayetteville NC, have their first hearse a 1978 Cadillac Superior endloader.
Interior needs some work to restore her to her finest condition slight body damage with rust around the vinyl but slight, Passenger door panels need replaced and scrolls on both sides of coach are missing, small hole in exhaust but have gotten nec material to patch, attaching a picture.  If you want a funny story try this one!  IN NC they seize vehicles from Drunk Drivers and yup this one was seized.  I don't believe she was in impound for quite 4 months from a receipt that we found in the back from 5-7-02, so there isn't too much exposure damage.  I picked it up at Auction at a remarkable price, and drove it off the impound lot that day. In less than a week we have come to love our beautiful lady and have named her Morgana.  Any help we can get in locating parts to restore her to her original beauty would be greatly appreciated as well as general knowledge about her and other hearses.  Perhaps someone could instruct me in how to get her history?

We have a recently aquired 1952 Plymouth Cranbrook right-hand-drive rear-loading hearse. 9 foot glass windows along the side (no side access doors aside from the front 2). Side opening rear door. It was last used as a bush-bashing rally car (for a charity bash) in 1989. For the low, low price of $100 Aussie dollars (about $50 U.S dollars), it needs a fair bit of tlc (and donor parts from our other plymouth - hehe) to get it on the road again, but its a long awaited aquisition, so it will all be worth it.
