Throughout history, flowers have accompanied the deceased to their final resting place. In the early 1930s purpose built flower cars began to appear. These flower cars were built on all makes of chassis, including luxury Packards, Cadillacs, LaSalles and Buicks to Pontiacs and Chevy El Caminos.
Featured here, in the only book ever dedicated to these unique professional cars, is the story of the flower car from the 1930s to the long, low coupes de fleur still being built today.
A bonus section features the other workhorse of the funeral home fleet, the Service Car, which transported the deceased from home or hospital to the funeral parlor and moved caskets and other funeral service paraphernalia to the church or cemetery.
