A truly rare car on the Cadillac commercial chassis for 1953, by one of the "big four" funeral car builders: Hess & Eisenhardt, Superior, Meteor and Eureka. My guess is that each of them built fewer than 50 units each year. There's not enough detail in the pics to determine which one did this car.

On the 3rd pic of the thumbnails in the comments the "Eureka" label is visible ;) (well, we can guess it is that)

Here we have a link to show that it is Eureka:

I am not too happy with the classification as "Pick-Up". This is certainly not wrong, but could we add the classification "Hearse"?

In this movie it seems to be used more like a pickup than a hearse :D
Maybe we should add a category "hearse". But then I'll also add "ambulance"

Done :)
I called this category "Funeral" (since there are at least hearses and flower cars) but I accept any better suggestion. In French I called that "Véhicules funéraires".

Skidmark, How long have you owned this flower car? And what condition is it in now? If it's for sale, I'm interested! Please email some pics if possible. fltwd57@yahoo.com Thanks!

skidkmark- I envy you! I just saw the movie again last night on a cable movie channel that shows 'classic movies' and fell in love with the car. It's so unusual! In much of the film it looks as though it may be outfitted with seats or at least padded sides in the rear compartment, but toward the end they actually use it for toting a coffin. I did notice during that sequence there is a closeup of the windshield, and you can clearly see 'Flower Car' as either a decal or etched into the glass at the lower corner of the passenger side of the windshield. I didn't know this was the model name. Also in several shots the Cadillac ensign is clearly visible on the hood.

It's a fascinating looking car, and I'm sure you're proud of it.
