Default Recent Acquisition - 1918 S & S Hearse

Some of you will have seen this recent acquisition on my Facebook posting. Recently acquired from Estate of car collector, the late Wes Myrick, of Grand Rapids Michigan area. A hand carved 1918 S & S hearse. Running but needs engine rebuilt. Otherwise in very good condition considering most if it is made out of wood. Hope to bring to August 2018 Meet in Detroit (Sterling Heights). I won't run the engine (mechanic does not want me to do any damage to internals), but at least we can display for everyone to see for the first time. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I can arrange for proper rubber running boards?Name:  36321468_1965036833610384_7982744010118660096_n.jpg

What's the purpose of the bin/drawer/whatever above the basket?

Only use I can think of would be ice containment to keep the body cool.
