“Here is rare opportunity to purchase a 1959 S&S Victoria Cadillac electric 3-way Landau Hearse with Hydraulic leveler! The body is 99% rust free; it is all original steel un-molested and never repaired. There is absolutely no rust in the floors or inner sills on this car! (Unbelievable and they have never been repaired) - being a California vehicle all its life. Would be very easy to make this vehicle an absolute mint vehicle if that’s what you’re into. The care was stripped to bare metal and painted beautiful black in Germany. There is still some work left. This is a super rare collector car.”

Vehicle description

Here is rare opportunity to purchase a 1959 S&S Victoria Cadillac electric 3-way Landau Hearse with Hydraulic leveler ! This vehicle was the most expensive hearse you could buy in 1959, there are other hearses, and the build quality of the S&S is far advanced than Miller Meteor and Superior from the same period. This vehicle was imported to New Zealand from Los Angeles in 2007, it started life in service at Fresno Funeral chapel in Fresno CA in 1959, it remained in service until the early 80"s when it was parked with 58,000 miles. It was sold to a local resident who stripped the Hearse to bare metal, and it sat in that state until the late 90"s when a Gentleman from Napa Valley purchased it and there it sat until it was shipped to a collector in New Zealand in 2007. Vehicle was shipped to Germany in 2019.
The vehicle has been gone through mechanically replacing all fuel and brake lines, shoes, cylinders steering box, ball joints bearings seals and associated componentry. The engine has not been rebuilt but it is a good runner. The transmission shifts smooth and correctly as it had 58000 original miles on the Hearse when it was purchased in 2007 by the previous owner. This Hearse will drive anywhere and is mechanically sound and reliable - NZ has a very tough vehicle testing regime which vehicles are put through every 6 months. This Cadillac has had a new correct L.O.F Windscreen which was purchased from Pilkington classics in the USA in 2007 (apparently one of the last made) and all new EZ eye green tinted glass all round. The front seat has been re-upholstered in correct style and with cool vintage checker silver paneling, the rest of interior needs full restoration but there is enough fabric black and silver to complete the whole interior. I also have all original door cards and trims. The electric 3-way table has been gone through and the motor reconditioned. it is now reliable and operates as it should. The Table is in fantastic condition for its age and is complete. The stainless side molding trim is newly fitted on the car and is immaculate. Has full 2.5-inch twin exhaust with glass packs and flow masters. The Body condition is excellent.
Has a near new set of Coker classics Bias ply Wide Whitewall tires. The body is 99% rust free; it is all original steel un-molested and never repaired. There is absolutely no rust in the floors or inner sills on this car! (Unbelievable and they have never been repaired) - being a California vehicle all its life and it must be the best condition 59 metal wise that I have seen. Would be very easy to make this vehicle an absolute mint vehicle if that’s what you’re into. The care was stripped to bare metal and painted beautiful black in Germany. There is still some work left.
