Here is something I found the the other  day thought it was kind of different ? or strange   but an out of the box idea Since most of my life always thought  hearse ambulances  limos were pretty much Caddies her is  twist maybe a cool build idea see what you guys think

Bad News is a '60 not a '59.

I'd base this on an AMT '59 El Camino but your biggest challenge will be that taller than usual windscreen...

That is a hearse built in England. I'm not sure if it is an actual hearse, or if someone customized the car...

I would think that a hearse or ambulance would have used a sedan/El Camino/wagon/sedan delivery windshield. I considered trying to lengthen a '59 El Camino body and sectioning and shrinking an Ecto 1 roof to fit the much smaller Chev body. It seemed beyond my mere skills, so I abandoned that dream. here's a photo that I pulled from a German ad for hearses of that year.. below that is a pretty good all around set of photos depicting a '59 ambulance which would essentially likely be similar to a hearse. I wonder how many of these made their way to Germany? I know that they did build some ambulance/hearse bodies on the Chevy platform, but somehow, I think that there were not many made. I really despise this thumbnail sized pictures thing but the photos will enlarge if you click on them.
