Actually, flower cars have been around for quite a while, I've seen them from the 60s and they can be fairly collectable. I always looked at them as a Cadillac El Camino.

The abomination would be why a 4.x powered car with only 107k miles already has a rebuilt engine and transmiision and the other parts listed, lol.

I hate to ask this, but is a flower car what the name implies that it is?

They were built for funerals to move the flowers between the wake/funeral home and the church service and sometimes graveside. I've seen them as far back as the 1940s.

Okay, at least this isn't some redneck project like that 88 Deville.

Watch the funeral scene from "The Godfather". You'll see flower cars in action. They haven't been used widely since the early 60s. I'm surprised they were still being made as recently as 1990.

I have seen that car in use in funerals in Queens, NY in the past.

Nice car. I believe there is a large Korean Presbyterian church right off Northern Blvd, I have seen it there at funerals a bunch of times.

Still in nice shape given the heavy urban use it has had. I wonder what the reserve was...

Wow, get rid of all that boss hog shit, clean it up a bit and you've got the '80s take on the Connie convert.
