Make, Model, Year of Project

1965 Cadillac Superior Landaulet Hearse

What stage is this in?

Somewhere between complete and not sure if it will ever get finished

When did you purchase it and for how much?

I purchased it in February of 2019 for $9,000.

Why did you choose this vehicle?

It is Quirky with beautiful lines

I want to convert it to people and parts hauler with style.

What sort of condition was it in when you started the project, what was wrong with it, etc.

It had some rust, issues with the power steering pump and brakes

The interior needed love.

What, specifically have you done, or had done to it?

I have stored it due to other projects.

I pounced in it when I saw it knowing it may take a few months or years before I would get to it.

Can you list any and all parts that you have put in?

I did not put it in, but it has a Kenny Bell Buick 455 on raised intake with dual 4bbl carbs

The hood sports a scoop.

Side exit exhaust.

Where have you purchased your parts?

Caddy Daddy


Rock Auto

Auto zone

What about you?

I am a physician by day, mechanic on my free time that likes weird things.

Any stories regarding this project?

None yet, however, there was a rumor that a young guy bought this from Hollywood, CA and had it shipped to WI where he lived north of Greenbay.

I have found pics of it before this trip and it was very nice.

The story continues that the guy was driving it one day and it overheated the transmission and he was near a lake with a floating boat dock

He decided to cool the transmission by driving the hearse onto the dock, which in turn, sank enough to submerge the bottom of the car. When that cooled the transmission, he drove back off the dock.

Eventually, the hearse was parked outside a family farm.

No one in the WI area would touch it when it went for sale due to the story.

I have inspected the underside and floors and do not believe this story. It’s actually very solid for such an old car.

Any garages, parts stores, fabrication shops, etc you want to call out specifically?

Not yet.
