Hearse CBP End date: October 31st, 2025.
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, May 06, 2005 5:08 AM
O.K. Here's the idea... Build a hearse, any hearse, any way you want to. It could be compleatly stock, customized, a salvage yard wreck, a dragracer, Nascar, or a lowrider. I've got 2 hearses under construction at this moment, a '59 pro street, and a Jo-Han I recently dug up(Pun intended). so let's get buried in this, and try not to make any grave mistakes!

(Due to popularity, I've decided to leave this one up and running. Anyone can join at any time, and enjoy adding their contribution.)

Hey californiakid,

I thought about suggesting this myself but then thought that hearse kits are somewhat hard to come by and let the thought go. Any chance you'll include ambulances?? I don't have any hearses at the moment but I do have several ambulances in the works. Just a thought...

I'll share some pics of the two hearses I built later today.

Hearses. Hmm now im gonna go and buy some 40s and convert them. What is the qualifications for a hearse? Does it have transport the dead or something that was actually used for a hearse.
You look like you could use some waffles HmmHmmWhoo-GIR

I was thinking that because hearse kits are hard to come by and deathly expensive, most of us would resort to phantom hearses anyway. I've carried a few ideas around with me for some time, and maybe I'll crack out the putty and give this a try.

Here are the photos of the two 66 Cadillac Hearses I built as promised. Both were built when I bought them, then had a complete tear down and restoration. The casket table in the gray hearse is mounted on brass slides so the table pulls out with the casket. The gray one has no engine, and I used a chassis from an ecto 1 since the one I had was too far gone. It also has a vinyl top kit from MCG, flocking, and BMF. The burgundy hearse has working steering, and a fully wired engine. I hope you enjoy them...





Here's the ambulance I'd like to get in on this CBP with...it's almost 1/3 finished already although it looks like it's further along in the photos...

Ok count me in. It might take me a short bit to get started but countme in. I've been thinking of something to do with my 55 Nomad, and a Hearse sounds alike a GREAT idea. Maybe I'll stick a mini frig so the guys can have some corpsecicles, and a sound system so the unfortunate fellow, can have one "last" Monster Mash. Heh.

I found a picture on the internet of a '57 chevy hearse. Man it's cool. keep us posted on the '55. Sounds like something I could really dig. (except for the corpsecicles.... EEEWWWWWWWWW!!!!!) P.S..... Make sure the suspesion is good and stiff, you don't want your customers jumping out and scaring the tourists! Laugh

Yes I'm dying to see this project finnished Tongue
But I am actually in bit of a trouble with death at the moment. It's not in releation with hearses but it's about the paper work on my '61 Merc 190. I don't have any papers on it at all, and the according to the authorities the only way to prove my ownership is to dig up the previous owners on my own. I called the guy I bought the car from and asked him he who he bought it from. He toled me that the guy i he got the car from had died in a diving acident in Spain a few years ago, and that the guy this man got it from is also dead. And further back than this I have not been able to dig. So now the problem is that I have to get the signature or something like that from to people that are dead, to prove that I own the carConfusedBanged HeadDead

That's a drag, Atmobil! I really hope you can find a way to prove your ownership. Did the guy you got the car from have it titled? Because I would think you'd only have to prove you acquired it from the last documented owner legally.

I've got to get back to my hearse kits, as always, I get buried in my modeling! LaughLaughLaughLaughLaugh

Nope. That's one of the problems here. Nobody even knows if the cars has been on Norwegian plates, but I do think that it has been because of the stickers in the windows and a servicesticker in the doorpost that is from a Norwegian petrolstation.
But I I am a going to talk to a guy that has some knowledge on how I can get new papers on the car.

Soon I will be finnished with some of the chassis bits on the Ford and some leathally nice pictures are comingCool
