Custom Pro Street Hearse..... New pixs 4-17-06
Posted 24 March 2006 - 02:26 PM
This is a project I've been working on for awhile now. It's the Jo-Han Heavenly Hearse, with the back half frame from Revell '67 Pro street car.
It has a custom interior from a Jo-Han Cadillac convertable.
I finally got it painted, when we had a nice warm day, but I still need to clear coat it. I'll post some pics of the progress soon.
Here's some pixs of it painted:
This is before polishing.... I'm going to wet sand it again to get rid of the slight orange peel off of it, then give it a final coat of clear.

What color did you go with? There's a hearse around here that is very similar, in a dark metallic purple. It even tows a matching purple coffin that has a fake skeleton come up and wave at the press of a button in the car. I've been trying to get a shot of it, but I have only seen it cruising at night, they don't seem to take it into the daytime car show that I've seen it at for the past 4 years.

All of Jo-Han's hearse and ambulance kits are getting harder to locate, and are getting expensive. I bought 3 of the heavenly hearses, and paid almost $300 for them. I wishing that the current owner of Jo-Han would re-issue the kits, but that depends on if he has the molds, and if they are still usable....
I painted it a black mettalic from Dupli-Color. The paint came out excellent, and the clearcoat is excellent. I'm gonna wet sand the clearcoat one more time to get the 2 or 3 dust specks out of it, give it another coat of clear, and then polish it out.

Even the Ambulance that was put out in 02 or 03 is tough now to get, glad I did get one when I could.
