On my 1:1 hearse, I had the license, DED END(only 6 letters and numbers allowed on Mo. plates). My ex made me sell the caddy, because she thought it was too morbid. I guess I should have gotten rid of her, instead of the car. EvilLaugh

It was a 1976 Cadillac endloader, with a 500 C.I. caddy engine. I miss that car more than my ex-wife.Sigh

Nope, sorry. When I left her, I left in a hurry. I also left about $500.00 worth of kits behind too. From this day forward I will NEVER get married again! Big Smile

Any progress on those hearses? I've started a second '59 using the Ghost Busters ambulance. I'm going to customize this one as a Barris style custom. Wish me luck!

Some progress can be noted but most of it is in plan for the best bad pun of the CBP. So far I can reveal that the 1937 Hearse to the For'd is driven by a man that used to be a bus driver but he got tired of moaning passengers all the time. They don't moan anymore...
He is now driving for Toten Begravelsesbyrå. For those of you that don't live in Norway a little story: Toten Transport is a trucking company based in the town of Toten. They drive all over Europe, transporting goods. But in German Toen means killed or beat'n to death. So I created a "sister-company" of Toten Transport: Toten Begravelsesbyrå (thats undertaker in English). This company has the slogan "We do the whole job". Quite appropriate for a company with such a name and a former angry bus driver dressed as who else but the Grimreaper. Has anyone here played Grim Fandango (PC game)? Thats the reaper i'm thinking of, a sceleton dressed in a big blake cloak with a scythe in his handsEvil
Now follows some pictures.






This is of the chassis, not quite finnished at the moment of the pictures. More to come later.

ooohh....look what I came across!

Concept drawing from the game Grim Fandango, The Bone Wagon.
Someone should build a hearse like this, maybe I should....in the game theirs quite alot of detail on how they made it into this mad style.
Thats Glottis in the drivers seat and Manny Calavera in the back. Guess where the "customers" go..heheCool
Drawing dated 96 and game came out in 98, was named Game of 98 by many and I think its one of the best games everAlien

Revell Monogram '37 Ford Panel Delivery Truck
Its a Deluxe kit with paint glue and brush included in the kit. Issued 1998 according to the box. On the cover of the box I got its a blue circus van but I now that the kit comes in different version. One is a "Blony" bubblegum van.

Ahhh...well. That I'm not quite sure about yet. If I'm even going to build it I think I will have to look at the game and find out what sort of car they started out with. I should look for some screenshots of the cars. I remember the scene in the garage, the Hearses where hanging on a huge coat-rack thingBig Smile
At the current moment I'm addapting the skeletons for the interiour tub of the Ford. Pictures will be coming sometime soonSmile

Well... thats a different way to park a hearse! Laugh I had an idea of which kit to use, but they are expensive to buy. From the looks of it, a Jo-Han hearse would fit the bill perfectly. But they run around the $100 mark on prices.

You could use one of Jimmy Flintstone's 59 Caddie Hearse bodies as a base too. They usually go for about $10-12 on eBay.....

Ive got four Ghost busters ambulance's that I've re-worked into hearses. I had one of the JF hearses, but it was missing a BIG chunk of the backend, and the lhs wouldn't let me return it, so I started doing my own. The artist rendition above shows the same style as the Jo-Han hearse. The '59 is too rounded at the back. Thanks for the suggestion though.

I have taken some screen caps of Grim Fandango. This is down in the D.O.D's garage.


The hanging hearses, how they get them down is beyond me...

The hearse as it started out, Glottis trying it for size.

The hearse hsa been modified. Glottis is actually a Demon and he is not allowed to drive cars but thanks to Manny Calavera and he's clever faking of the bosses signature, he can now drive.

En route to the land of the living!!!Cool

Do'nt know what the hearse lookes like as it started out but I think a Caddilac kit, a Dragster kit and some bits an bobs should make a very mean hearse.Evil
Rember to have Glottis as the driver and Manny in the back with his scythe and cloak...

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. And how does Oct. 31st as the end date sound? 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 buried in this, and try not to make any grave mistakes! Big Smile


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.


Yes sir... Ambulances are included. Big Smile

Hey californiakid I know I'm late to this but I have been working on an Ambulance would it be ok if I join I will have pictures soon its almost done

Ok here is my 1959 Cadillac County General Ambulance I built it out of a Ghostbusters caddy. I had to fill all the holes and I cut out one finder skirt. I made the decals after spending a ton of time on the net trying to find real Ambulances that were rusted and been lost to time. Hope you guys like it
