Could it be a Demers? A lot of them were sold in the US. Is this your car?

No Denny not mine. It belongs to a friend of mine. His grandfather owned a funeral home in Massachusetts. The remaining rolling stock is this 1981 Mercury, and a very nice 1968 Cadillac limousine. They are keeping the Limousine but will possibly sell the Mercury Hearse. The Funeral Home closed in 2003 and will be sold this Friday.

That car looks almost the same as a removal car we had,it was converted by a small shop in Kitchener Ont.but all searches fail to remind me their name,as a removal car it was classy considering most were plain wagons with the Mrs.'s home made drapes.

Brendan... you could always check with Parks to se who built this interesting Mercury conversion. One would think that they would still have the records from when they sold it to your friend. These may indicate who built the car.

Wayne...I believe that you are thinking of Elegante. They did some conversions in the late seventies.
