Where other, larger, funeral cars end up with funky profiles to fit the body style, this 1940 Ford appears to have a roofline lifted straight from its coupe and thus looks more organic than most Cadillac or Packard-based flower cars. Though, that begs the question makes one wonder: When this was new, who would have chosen a Ford over a Cadillac/Packard/Lincoln to take them to their final rest? Henry Ford himself, as we all know, went to the boneyard in a Packard rather than one of his company’s products. From the seller’s description:
1940 Super Deluxe combo flower/hearse, this is believed to be 1 of 6 flower cars produced by Ford Motor Co. It is a stretch with dual purpose, flower car or hearse with casket rollers and all. This is believed to be the only one to exise. It is in wonderful original condition with 21,839 all original miles. It is all black, and it runs and drives very good. A very rare and unusual car. Whitewall tires, chrome trim rings, side mirror, clock, heater.
