On January 30, 1947 Al Capone´s boxed casket was placed in the Philbrick's "Cathederal sided" Cadillac hearse. It was named as such for the arch like Cathederal faux side windows made of solid wood.
Two Rago drivers took turns for the expected 48 hr drive to Chicago. A decoy empty coffin was placed on a train to Chicago to ward off the press. The body arrives on Feb.1,1947 where a service at Rago's chapel is given. Notables like Tony Accardo, Willie Heeney, Charlie and Rocco Fischetti (Capone cousins) and Rocco De Grazia were in attendance along with the Capone family.
