Putting a new motor in our hearse. Come along for the ride: Carpe Mortem - The Resurrection of a 1951 Hearse on Tumblr.

My hearse was made by M&L; Coachbuilders. I don't have one of their ads.

Ajax in front our our 1951 Pontiac hearse. He is actually quite chubby and has gigantic bat ears. He's doing a bang-up job appearing as a ghetto pit - all lean and crop eared. So far from the truth... (Carpe Mortem - The Resurrection of a 1951 Hearse)

    OH! What an adorable little guy! Mine is the same: chubby with little flop ears and utterly irresistible. I started a tumblr to document his various feats of napping... if you're interested,

    I like how he's disguising his rolls as ribs. Sometimes I wish I could do things like that.

    I can't say I've been a great enthusiast of hearses but I think you just may be the gal to change my mind :) Thanks for sharing the journey.

    Yaaaaaay!!!!! Thank you so much for joining me and watching it unfold. I had two hearses, but I sold one. Every day I wish I hadn't. We had hearses when I was a little girl. I had no idea that it was weird. We also lived in a gigantic old Greek revival mansion. This would explain why everyone said we were the Addams family. My stepfather was a competition canoeist he would tie two canoes to the top and travel to races in one of those two cars. We also went camping in them. I had no idea that was weird. LOL! I really loved those giant old cars and so always had a soft spot for hearses, ambulances, and panel wagons. I am super happy to have you on board! :-D

Carpe Mortem - The Resurrection of a 1951 Hearse. If you want to watch my hearse as it journeys back to life, you can follow this blog. Here's the 351 Windsor we bought to replace the straight 8 currently in it. Not enough HP in the original motor. I want to be able to haul a vintage trailer and to drive the hearse on the highway.

New (old) motor for my hearse. Taking out the 1951 straight 8 3-on-the-tree and replacing it with a 1979 351 Windsor. The old engine had lots of torque, but not a lot umph. My goal is to tow a vintage trailer behind the hearse. And I wanted it to be an automatic because, well, I'm a pussy and it's my car. Haha! Honey unloading it from the truck. YEAH!

More Things Than Are Dreamt Of: 50's HEARSES

MY 1965 Cadillac hearse was an M & M coach. For those who've missed my whining, a 'friend' talked me into selling it to him (very cheaply) and then he turned around and sold it on eBay.

    Best of luck in your search! May you find someone as foolish as me to sell you one! Hahaha! (I still have my '51, but stupidly sold my '65 to a "friend" who turned around and sold it on eBay.) Let me know if you find one!

    Love it!!

Not a hearse or ambulance, but it is still an awesome commercial vehicle that would have been customized by a coach company. 1949 bookmobile. How fantastic that someone found this and restored it.

VERY like my hearse. It's a two-door like mine, but mine has center windows. BUT it is exciting that this is a two-door rear loader!!!! So excited!!!!
