1937 S&S Byzantine Hearse.
This 1937 funeral coach was built by the Sayers and Scovill Coach Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. During the 1937 model year, S&S utilized the Buick chassis for their elaborate funeral coaches however they went to great lengths to disguise the actual chassis manufacturer.
The funeral coach you see here is S&S's top-of-the-line offering for 1937 and is called the Byzantine model. It features a large, three section, arched drapery panel on the sides, dual side mount spare tires, nickel-plated coach lamps, chrome hubcaps with the S&S insignia, a spacious and very ornate casket compartment, and the S&S year marks (also known as "date marks") on the grill.
S&S hearse interior
Walnut and Mohair casket compartment.
The interior of the casket compartment is a masterpiece of gothic design, featuring an eggplant colored mohair fabric and walnut paneling with gothic church-window fabric s. Nickel plated coach lamps illuminate the interior, and a small window is placed in the center of the carved draperies for the display of a Crucifix or Cross. There are extension rollers at the rear loading door that pull out to ease the loading of the casket into the funeral coach.
You would never know this is a Buick. S&S removed all references to the chassis maker, including the glove box door insignia, grill badges, and even the hub caps. The hub caps are engraved with the proud S&S initials in a six-point shield.
