C & C Custom Funeral Coach
C & C Custom Funeral Coach, 1970s-1980s; Covington, Kentucky
Associated Builders

C & C was a small suburban Cincinnati based mortuary accommodation company similar to Abbott & Hast in California. C & C stood for Don Catchen & Don Clare, the firms two owners.

This firm's first conversion was of a '73 Olds Custom Cruiser into a service car. It was around into the late '80's, and later offered station wagon conversions with an extended tail and a raised roof. Their 1981 catalog featured standard wheelbase Chevy Suburban and Mercury Marquis Hearse conversions.

Don Catchen Inc. still operates a livery service at 515 Pike St. in Covington and also runs a small chain of funeral homes in Covington and Elsmere, Kentucky with his son.
