Default '32 Chevy carved column hearse




Guessing on year. Haven't started researching coach builder yet. Ideas?

This is another hearse in Mexico. Very little description accompanied these two shots~ All rebuilt and sitting in a museum for a very long time. Will attempt verifying availability independently.

The 32 had chrome vent doors on the hood sides. It is probably earlier than that because of the wood spoke wheels.

Atti, you sure do a good job of sniffing out unusual vehicles!!

Thanks,
Mike

most likely a horse drawn mounted on a truck chassis. much like the Reo at Albany. one may never know who made the conversion. but it looks to be a 12 column body. a nice job on the coloring of the wood.

Default carved chevy

Nice conversion, though. I'd say it's a 1927. - Walt
