Devilleamino – Because those Hearse Kids Need their Lunch Money Stolen

Frequently ‘amino-ed cars come with a story along the lines of “Cletus bet me I couldn’t…”, but this one’s pretty straightforward. It’s a 1962 Cadillac-based flower car…basically a hearse-amino. The body’s rough and the interior’s shot, but it looks like it’s all there, mechanically speaking. Apparently flower cars are super-rare, so the $3,950 asking price could be an easy price of entry for someone willing to take on a big project with a big reward.
That, or you get the bench re-done in TJ, run some straight pipes and call it a day. Either way, check it out at AutoTrader Classics.
Thanks to Matt for the tip!

    This is such a sweet set of wheels. If I had the disposable income available, I'd have one pissed off wife and one less garage spot.

    Cadillac Floweraminos are just the most bitchin' thing going. Hearses are pretty cool, but kinda creepy unless you use one to haul band equipment. My old limo was a blast, even though it was problematic as hell. This thing would be just too much fun to play around with.
    Team Police Brutality need one of these to match their Cadillac LeMons car. I was going to say tow, but I'll bet that that car gets to the next race under it's own power.

      Most of the benefits of a hearse without felling like you need to walk around wearing a black trench coat.

    Thank goodness this is in Maine. It's too far away to temp me. At first I thought it would be awesome to restore and make all pretty and shiny… then my darker side won out with his yearning for merely a more even coat of flat black. Maybe polish the chrome up a bit and then call it a day. It's listed as "Finished"… so I guess the seller agrees with my dark side.

      It's in Maine?
      Fuck fuck fuck. That's a lot closer than I'd like, considering that if you handed me four grand in cash right now there're only one or two things that would come before this.
      And I agree that this needs to remain flat black.

    Projects like this will either strengthen your marital bond or alleviate that "wife" problem completely. I gained a garage spot and a lot of sanity after ridding myself of my wife problem though… sometimes it's a tough call.

    I like the way you think acarr! Matte black with satin finish trim, slammed down over a set of Torq Thrust wheels and blown Cadillac V8 power. Maybe a nice skull hood ornament, too.

      Now we're talking! We could own Billetproof… at least in our minds.

    It's sad that most people (at least in my area) have no idea what a flower car actually is, and most of there reactions are based upon the idea that they are some sort of hillbilly creation. Personally I like flower cars, and would have one if my situation permitted it (i.e lots-o lottery winnings and a huge-normous warehouse). This one is priced very well for its vintage, providing its not rotten. These old hearse-type vehicles were known to develop swiss cheese floor boards.

    This looks evil. Don't be evil.

      Now that's just taking all the fun out of it. It's fun to do bad things.

    I've got 8 mostly good years under my belt so far. I love cars, but don't want one to be the demise of my marriage. Well, maybe if it was a mint condition 356A…

      There, fixed it for you.

    It’s funny just how many different sites the internet has on this subject I don’t know if I’m ever going to have to be back here, but it’s awesome to know I stumbled upon the one that offers a little valuable stuff if this comes up for me another time
