Getting lightheaded merely thinking of trying to come up with a commercial chassis '59 or '60 dash for conversion, knowing how difficult a decent standard one can be alone. Yeesh.

Do like splash of color added to wheel covers. Nice touch to otherwise boring caps.

WOWSERS ! A converted right hand drive American hearse !

That is neat but the price will have it stay there.

Atti,

what is the difference between standard dash pads and one for commercial chassis? I thought they were the same. See like we were talking always learning something new.

This was Neil Gray's coach.. The restoration, including the RHD conversion, was completed in Australia just over 20 years ago. Here's a few pics I shot back then...







I was given the opportunity to drive it once or twice.

Interestingly enough, at that time there were four 1960 Cadillac pro-cars in Australia, one of each coach-builder! You can guess what happened to the M-M...

Factory air conditioning. Very rare in commercial chassis of this period.

Tom, the A/C was sourced from a '"regular" '60 and installed during the restoration.

If I recall correctly, this coach was located in CA and shipped to Australia in the mid-late '80s and used in a music video before undergoing the restoration and conversion. It originally wore Cream paint with a Brown crinkle top and body-color hubcap centers, as depicted in this b/w factory photograph -

There was a 1960 Eureka in the Brisbane area at a fellows sisters. I don't know if that one is still available. I will go over some old emails and see if I have any info.
