Brooklin 1934 Miller-LaSalle Hearse

Brooklin 1934 Miller-LaSalle Hearse

For 1934, custom body manufacturer Miller introduced an “Art-Carved” Funeral Coach with a curved arch and supporting columns extending the full length of the body. The ornate “carving” was stamped metal, patterned to look like drapery panels. The body was offered on several chassis, but none was more unusual than this one, on a stretched 1934 LaSalle. This second full-sized hearse from Brooklin’s “Community Service Vehicle” line has the real car’s slender vertical grille, biplane bumpers, and “shielded” porthole louvers exactly right. The glossy black paint has some minor surface ripples, with the long, textured roof insert and accurately reproduced carved panels in contrasting flat black. Separate chrome-plated windshield molding, handles, side trim, and semi-trimmed portholes make this one fully detailed on the outside.  The driver’s compartment has an accurate, but overpainted dash; likewise the instrument details and seat upholstery. The door panels are plain, and it’s hard to see inside the rear compartment, but there’s roller detail on the platform, though some unpainted metal can be seen on the sides. This big beauty makes an impressive addition to any hearse or GM collection. — Wayne Moyer
