Default Abbott And Hast Conversions

Do any of the members here have an Abbott And Hast conversion?

I would like to see some examples.

I am in Mexico and during the '60s the law in Mexico was that a hearse had to be a Mexican made car.

Station wagons were sent from Mexico to Abbott and Hast to be converted and sent back to Mexico.

I am going to start a search for some of these cars and I hope to find some.

I was in Navajoa Sonora recently and went to a funeral home to look at 2 Cadillacs they had there.

I got to talking to the owner and we went to his office for me to give him my information and right on the wall was a picture of an A&H conversion they used to have. It was a Dodge Coronet wagon.

I really hope to find some.

Any pictures will be appreciated so I can identify the car when I see it.

Thanks in advance for your help with this.

I believe Dwayne Brooks has a '69 Ford, really nice coach.

That is it 3rd pic from the top. It came from Gobles in Fortuna Ca , the 69 below came from the same place.

I am seeing that all the cars have the distinctive sandblasting on the back window.

I will use that to identify an A&H conversion.

Thanks guys.
