Last Ride: Classic Hearses at the 2018 Woodward Dream Cruise

Motor Trend Logo Motor Trend | Slide 2 of 7: Just check out the "drapery" adorning the business end of this baby. It's formed of cast aluminum, and each side panel incorporates a fairly well-hidden door. Yes, that means that for your last ride, you could either be loaded in head (or feet) first through the conventional right-side-hinged single rear door, or if more convenient to the burial location or curbside parking position relative to the church or funeral home, loaded in from either side. This 3-ton leviathan is powered by a Cadillac V-8. Acquired by its current owner in 1999, it has undergone a 10-year restoration, since which it has logged 11,000 miles attending meets. It was originally used by Tull Funeral Home in Toronto (which is still in business) and is believed to have been used as a hearse until 1959.
