Most limos in the US are stretched versions of standard vehicles. I've seen limo Continentals, Hummers, Lincoln Navigators, Mercedes, and a few others I can't remember.  Your modeling skills, budget, and kits available are the limitations.

When I was in secondary school in the 60s I saw a '59 Chevy limo with 5 doors on each side and a luggage rack. There's a challenge for you.

There have been quite a few diecast limos made over the years, from presidential cars to modern civilian models. The newer ones have pretty good detail, and can be modified like any plastic kit.

Cadillac was the last US automaker to produce a true limousine, the Cadillac Fleetwood 75, which went away after 1987.  All subsequent Cadillac limousines are standard Cadillac 4-dr sedans, stretched by any one of a number of limousine builders.

Most likely an Armbruster-Stageway, built for airport and hotel services.

When I was in my last three trimesters of college, I was a driver for my college's minor sports team--5-door '66 Pontiacs, stretched by Stageway.  Believe me when I say that driving that pig took LOTS of planning beforehand!

those were airport cars ! I've seen a few in fields , but never restored or on the road . 

"rare" kit? no such thing!

build it, dont let it sit on the shelf.....

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......
