Chronicling 157 years of professional vehicle progress as well as telling the story of the illustrious firms and the dynamic, innovative people behind their success, this book documents the ups and downs of a relatively obscure segment of the North American automotive industry highlighting the milestones in the development of these special, purpose-built vehicles. As is amply illustrated, over the past century, the development of the funeral car and ambulance has closely followed that of the passenger car with significant, but interesting, deviations.
