The Documented Harold and Maude Hearse

Site under redo, trying new design...

When you think of Hearses, you can't help but think of the beautiful 1959 Cadillac Superior used in the classic "cult" film, Harold & Maude.

This hearse has been claimed to be owned by many individuals, from a gentleman in Southern California, to the now deceased actor Brandon Lee.

Unfortunately, none of these funeral cars had any sort of documentation, and the original remained horribly missing in action.

I had almost given up looking, when I was contacted by a man who lives in the Northern CA area.

He claimed to own the hearse, and that he actually had documentation.

He invited me to come view the hearse, and inspect his paperwork. I was skeptical at first, but I'm not anymore....

Here's why...

The Proof

The letter from April 10, 1975 from the California Department of Motor Vehicles
stating that the vehicle in question, according to the paperwork,
one 1959 Cad, lic. plate 504 COO, vin # 159602L324
was owned by Collin Higgins/Mildred Lewis,
with dates appropriate to the filming of the movie "Harold & Maude".

This hearse's Vin # & plate correspond with that of the letter, and also the movie.
Also, the bill for the four year history provided by the DMV.
This is of note due to the matching unit reference # ma-14.

The Pictures

Several Pictures of the 1959 Cadillac Superior Hearse,
with the CA plate 504 COO clearly visible.

Also, for you to enjoy, a picture taken during the filming of the
funeral scene filmed in our own Palo Alto, CA.

The Owner

Please take a few moments to read a statement from the owner of the
1959 Cadillac Superior Hearse, who's decided to go "semi-public",
in order to get his hearse the credit it so rightfully deserves.

Harold Quote:

Psychiatrist: Tell me, Harold, how many of these, uh, "suicides" have you performed?
Harold: An accurate number would be difficult to gague.
Psychiatrist: Well, just give me a rough estimate.
Harold: A rough estimate? I'd say... fifteen.
Psychiatrist: Fifteen?
Harold: That's a rough estimate.
Psychiatrist: Were they all done for your mother's benefit?
Harold: No, I would not say "benefit."

Maude Quote:

"A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they're not dead, really.
They're just... backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt, even!
Play as well as you can. Go team! GO!
Give me an L! Give me an I! Give me a V! Give me an E! L. I. V. E. LIVE! ...
Otherwise, you got nothing to talk about in the locker room."

- Maude (Ruth Gordon), Harold and Maude
