1929 Ford Hearse

    I’d keep the casket. Had an old Cadillac Hearse in college that had a casket that was half ice chest and half booze storage. Lots of fun and that big V8 could haul a bunch of folks.

    Really need to add four more cylinders, and maybe Grandpa Munster at the wheel.

    As a wood carver I like seeing cars like this there is so much potential here to add some carving work to this and really deck it out. I’d stick with a 4 cylinder but not this one, this engine trans would go on a running stand. Then I’d put in a Toyota 22R with an SR5 transmission. I’d also up grade to hydronic brakes. I’d go to shows and display the engine on the running stand which would give people a better idea about how these old vehicles worked.

    Although it could have been used for a hearse it is most likely a just a run of the mill cargo delivery truck. Usually a hearse had back side windows to view the casket.
    And he is asking top dollar for it. at $25,000.

    I’ve been into Model As for a long time, and it looks like a mail truck to me.

    I agree with Robert G. A hearse would would have windows, and trim so you know it was a hearse. Ford hated hearses. He rounded up as many of the old horse drawn type, threw them in a pile, and burned them. I currently drive a 1995 Buick Roadmaster Hearse. Coach work by Superior. Mine has a crusty looking casket in the back. Looks like it just got dug up. Anyway, I digress. The Ford panel wagon looks to be in nice shape, and would look good going down the road.

    Most likely a vehicle used for delivering “house call” equipment to a private residence for a funeral service. Probably owned by a funeral/furniture combination firm who also delivered a chair or table with it, and occasionally pressed it into service as an ambulance.
