Beginning as station wagons from the likes of Ford, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Buick, and the car of choice, Cadillac, and converted into emergency and professional service vehicles, professional cars have become recognized as visual icons. Having only commercial chassis and the front and rear clips in common, each is unique with ornately carved pillars, body length windows, and custom mobile casket tables.

&break;&break;Author Greg Merksamer, prolific automotive journalist, compiles this photographic history of hearses, flower cars, service cars, ambulances, and hearse-ambulances. More than 500 clear, large format photographs, combined with technical specifications, pay tribute to the cars used in professional service and the coachbuilders who made them.
