1967 Cadillac Miller Meteor Embassy Flower car. 1 of 6 made by Miller Meteor
This Fleetwood was born straight from the factory with commercial chassis and is only 1 of 2 remaining. The only one made in Venetian-Blue and is believed to be #3. At some point it was repainted black and last owned by Wanton Horne Chapel of Peace in Cleveland, Ohio till 2003. Own a piece of Funeral Coach history. This car is truly a scarce and unique vehicle. The flagship of any funeral fleet is the flower car that would lead the funeral procession. Though the traditional flower car is still made today, numbers are less than 20 units for the whole US. These are typically seen with Hollywood and Mob funerals. All of the flowers would be placed and secured on the stainless steel deck and lead in front of the hearse. This version has the enclosed rear section known as the Eastern version. A casket could also be placed in the back that is wall to wall and floor to ceiling stainless steel also. Other things could be placed in the rear such as chairs and other cemetery items.
I have owned this car over 7 years and have kept it in a garage the entire time. If you want something that no one will have or ever see….. this is it. This beauty needs FULL and COMPLETE restoration of the body, floors, engine and frame. This is a rare project. There is rust holes in the floors, doors, frame and body as it sat outside in wet conditions for many years before I bought it. It does run and move on its own but is not street legal. It has its original 429 V8 with automatic transmission. I have 2 extra convertible doors and a 1969 solid condition hearse frame that will go with it for an easy frame swap and help aid in restoration. The glass is all there. The windshield does have a crack in it. I replaced the front and rear bumpers and found the rest of the pieces of the flower deck that were missing.
