Services in New South Wales & ACT

Representing all the elegance of the 1930's, our superb 1937 Cadillac La Salle Hearse is the finest way to say goodbye in style.  Providing a service to  New South Wales and the ACT, this fully restored hearse is the pride and joy of Mr Stuart Rowe.

Originally exported from the United States as a commercial chassis, this La Salle hearse was fitted out in Australia with an engine (a side valve V8 engine which originally saw service powering a Cadillac tank), panels manufactured by Holden, whilst the coachwork was completed by Oldings Coachcraft, in Glebe. It has a floor mounted, three speed transmission.

Restoration has taken approximately 3years to complete with virtually all systems, be they electrical or mechanical, being completely rebuilt or replaced.
