Johan 66 Caddy Hearse

First time posting, here goes...

I started with the Johan “Heavenly Hearse”

I added a lengthened  ‘59 Impala chassis, lowered the ride height, and then channeled the body over the chassis. The motor is from the “Wagonrod” kit with ignition wires. The Caddy  rides on Pegasus wheels/tires/ and brakes. Aluminum tubing used for exhaust tips. 
Interior is flocked with embossing powder,  has bucket seats, console, and nav screen. 
Paint is metallic black, with flat black “vinyl top”. I made a nav antenna, tinted the windows, then applied a LOT of BMF. 
Any comments are welcome, thanks for looking. 2D5142F2-3CBF-43E1-B1F4-6F86A875C870.thumb.jpeg.7aef0e2a636621e7bd4d0d841f29441c.jpeg2F8C6F1B-969C-4BB4-B329-62BADB216E49.thumb.jpeg.c27dc06d48ad266316b4458a8ecd5779.jpeg483411E6-9783-4B04-B2F6-C8745B0DB771.thumb.jpeg.d7a7c0cbe6ce1b3bcf568ae1715f7636.jpegFB62BD5D-2238-4C30-BE7B-E7096CE2AAA0.thumb.jpeg.03eb7eb80016465507b72502bec2b19b.jpeg

That looks fantastic! You pretty much nailed a dream build of mine, you did a great job start to finish. It's great to see a hearse done as a regular hot rod instead of a ghoulish halloween type thing

Thanks for all the kind words guys. 

Al, I love your version too.

Misha, I do indeed have hood, that gave me a good laugh. I seem to leave my hoods of a lot.

Gene, that is exactly what I had in mind when I built it! Your last ride should be hot rod hearse of some kind, make your last ride one of your finest!
