This new book documents the history of one of the nationís largest and most admired professional car manufacturers, Miller-Meteor.
The Complete Illustrated History is the story of two of the most illustrious names in the North American funeral car and ambulance industry that merged into the front rank of this specialized, highly competitive niche.
The A.J. Miller Company, founded in 1853 by Amos Miller, began making a wide range of handcrafted buggies, surreys, wagons, hearses and other horse-drawn vehicles before evolving into an automotive body builder and later one of the most prolific manufacturers of funeral cars and ambulances in the country. Miller-built funeral coach and ambulance bodies graced the chassis of some of Americaís most famous brands including Buick, Cadillac, Chrysler, LaSalle, Nash, Oldsmobile, Packard, Pierce-Arrow and Studebaker. Inspired styling and mass-production techniques made Miller funeral cars and ambulances among the most popular in the country.
