Default Henny motors flower car/hearse...?

This belongs to a friend of mine. It was an uncle's, and after his passing, they're trying to sort out a title with the state of IL. Neat old car, not much to say, just thought you folks might appreciate seeing it...

Would be cool to see it come back to Freeport and join the Stephenson County Antique Engine Club's HENNEY's but sadly we're way short on volunteer labor anymore for fixing things up like they should be.

I'm not sure what year HENNEY signed an Exclusive Contract with Packard to use Their Chassis Only, but whatever year that was that one predates it.

Looks to be a Straight Hearse, but could pull double-duty in a smaller city and be a combination Hearse/Ambulance along with transporting flowers to the grave-site.

Dedicated "FLOWER-CARS" were cut down in back like a pick-up truck.

The last picture is of another "Flower-Car" I found on Facebook last year, but it's the only shot I have stored on my newer computer showing it from the rear.

The uncle who had owned it was adamant that it had been the flower car for someone local. But I can't argue that fact anymore without an oija board. It's a good looking old car. And I'm sure they'd love to see it go to someone that would care for it. And if that someone would do the leg work on the title, that they would make a square deal. I'll talk to him and see what the story is. If anyone wants to go that direction, perhaps you should pm me, and I can put you in contact with him.

It may Very Well have been Used as a Flower Car, but it was built as a Hearse.

A Couple Options on the title would be apply for a Lost Title, which would be sent to the last registered owner, (the Uncle) or whoever is picking up his mail, or apply for a Bonded Title which I Think is around a hundred bucks and good for three years, allowing that much time for someone with the original title to come and claim ownership, then after that 3 years the bonded title is traded for a Clear Title.

If you go for the Lost Title in the Uncles name then you also need a pile of paperwork to go with it including a Death Certificate and Power-of-Attorney, and a couple/few other forms allowing it to be sold.
