Henney was a leader in coachwork for "professional cars" [i.e., hearses, flower cars, ambulances and limousines] from the beginning of the 20th century until the early Fifties. In the 1920's the company built a few very high quality phaetons and sedans to individual clients' orders. Henney’s were not custom-bodied commercial chassis, but instead were built on unique Henney chassis and powered by Continental 6-cylinder and Lycoming 8-cylinder engines. The last Henney sedans were delivered in late 1931 but the styling and elegant design continued into the 1932 Model 10 Hearse seen here, one of very few funeral cars offered by any American builder on its own unique chassis. The style seen here with three large side windows and a high body waist line was typical of the era but carried to its most opulent extreme by Henney. The double side doors on both sides were part of Henney's "Nu-3-Way" design which adapted the coach to funeral and ambulance duties. This splendid example is finished in Dark Blue with Black fenders, Blue cloth covered roof, Gold coachlines and Dark Blue cloth upholstery. Its features include a Lycoming L-head inline eight cylinder engine, dual side-mounted spares, wire wheels with chrome lock rings and wide whitewall tires, cowl lights, depress beam headlights and a split windshield with opening panels. It has been restored to very high standards and is a shining example of the very best quality professional coach from the early Thirties.
