Hearse or combo? not for the faint of heart,,,,,i assume the 'stored indoors" is since it was pulled out of a bog somewhere...
"8 cynlinder; floor is good, has been stored indoors, & exterior sprayed with Krown rust control" $2500

Definitely an ambulance. Running boards look to be the worst of it.

Appears to be a Brantford-Henney-Packard - 1938 or 1939.

At least his asking price is a reasonable starting point. Most of what I have seen surface on eBay and Craig's List of late has been ridiculous, given the vehicle's condition.

The car is less than an hour from me if anyone is serious.

I can't see it selling but I can at least take some good photos and give a condition report on it.

Darren, iif you've got time, t may well be worth checking out if even to find out the serial numbers, body numbers and to get a good clear, close-up photo of the nameplate. This way, we would at least know who built it and an exact year. If, as I suspect, it's a Brantford-Henney, it would be pretty scarce and a rare piece of Canadian professional vehicle history. If nothing else, some pictures of these components (serial plates and builder's nameplate) would help to positively identify the unit.
