Found this online. Price is really high. Looks like a really nice car. Claiming to be all original. You would think they'd have a billion pix if they seriously want to get $125k

I've seen that before while trolling the web. I agree, for that price there should be more than a picture of the back. As soon as I win the lottery I'm going to buy it.

This was post a while back and at that price will likely be sitting there for a while too.

I would expect a better upholstery job on the front seat as well. Rear compartment looks good in the photos.

An FD asked my impression of this coach last summer after working seller down to a mere $80k. I saw this coach back in the late '90s and feel it is not currently represented accurately. Too many little details add up to being 124k miles, not 24k as claimed for starters. Even $80k would represent an unprecedented amount for model/condition and still be overvalued by $30k+.

I am glad we talked that funeral director out of buying this car. I could sell you a way nicer coach of the same vintage for about 10 grand less and be extremely happy!!!!!!

I also saw this coach at local events 15+ years ago and it was/is very nice in person, although probably not the most desirable M-M model to most collectors. The owner at that time was asking $40k.

Craig Whatley's beautiful blue '59 M-M Futura Duplex - for sale at $13k 20 years ago - was a far more impressive coach.

There are more pictures. There's a link at the bottom of the sale page that says, "Click here for more photos." Still, not many, but better.

Click Here, I'll give you the link to the additional pics. (http://stjohnmotorcars.com/1959hearse2.php)

One would hope you'd get a complete horn ring for a hundred and a quarter!

...and an original (or carefully re-upholstered to original) front seat.
