This Pontiac hearse was built by the Eureka Company, a coach builder who has been building professional cars, limousines, hearses, and flower cars, since 1871. From 1980 through 1989, the company was operating out of Toronto, Canada, mainly due to advantageous exchange rates between U.S. and Canadian money.  Through 1986 they built their hearses on the Pontiac Parisienne platform, Pontiac’s top-of-the-line nameplate in Canada.  The Parisienne was a full-size, rear-wheel drive Canadian Pontiac built from 1958 through 1986. The Parisienne was powered by a 5 liter, V8 engine that produced 140 horsepower. The economic advantage to building their professional cars in Canada made them the largest North American manufacturer of professional cars, producing over 600 coaches during the mid-to-late 1980s.
