Aretha Franklin being transported in vintage white hearse used by Rosa Parks

  • Following a week of mourning in her hometown city of Detroit, Aretha Franklin will be transported to her final resting in a hearse as glamorous as the Queen of Soul herself. The vintage two-door 1940 Cadillac LaSalle is known for transporting notable figures - including Franklin’s own father, Reverend CL Franklin in 1984, the Temptations baritone David Ruffin in 1991 and civil rights icon Rosa Parks in 2005. For Swanson, who was also behind the wheel of the vintage car for Franklin’s father, it has been a “privilege” to transport the Queen of Soul, who died earlier this month at the age of 76.
