These were 13 inch tail stretch with no frame changes. Tom did a very quality job with these cars.

I sure wish that one of the manufactures would start producing a commerical chassis again but I'm talking to the wall.

Default Opinions. Better with or without cot.

If someone was using for pickup vehicle they might leave cot in car. For display purposes which looks better?

That coach was in service at a local funeral home here in Indiana. What makes it 's history a little interesting is that it wasn't converted into a hearse until years later. It spent half it's life as a family sedan and a lead vehicle.

To answer your question, Danny, in my humble opinion I like it without the cot. I like to be able to see the beautiful interior of the coach. I feel the same about empty coffins in the back of hearses. For demonstration purposes, on an out of service coach, the cot or a coffin can serve a purpose. However, for everyday use/display, I like it without either. If it were an ambulance, I would prefer it fully stocked with equipment, supplies, and a stretcher.
Again, just one person's opinion. In truth, there is no right or wrong. It is your car; which way do you prefer?
