Hearse archival, NOT for sale:
Very rare and uniquely rebuilt 1936 La Salle hearse, “The Final Suit”. It started as a stock La Salle hearse, one of only a few ever made, I chopped it 7 and ½ inches and added a new engine and transmission. The car was cleaned and repainted inside and out. The front and rear brakes and master cylinder were rebuilt and stop the vehicle very well for a stock drum system. The car has been featured in Rebel Rodz magazine no. 4 2008 and Car Kulture Deluxe no. 28 2008. It was also featured in a local independent film called “Lion Man”. The engine is a 350 Chevy small block with vortech center bolt heads and an RV cam. The 300 horsepower moves this hearse nicely at highway speed and gets about 12mpg. It is topped with an Edelbrock intake manifold and 600 cfm Edlebrock carburetor. It has block hugger headers and 2-inch dual exhaust. The transmission is a rebuilt 700r4 overdrive with a Lokar 23” shifter. As you can see from the picture above, there are just over 5,000 miles on the car since the total rebuild. The driveline was rebuilt to fit. It has an electric speedometer that is programmable. There is also a complete set of gauges in the panel above the windshield. The original gauges are still in place in the dash but are not connected. All of the gauges light up as well as the tachometer mounted in the skull on the floor. It also has power door locks installed with remote for the keychain. Rare original parts include factory dash and gauges, original hubcaps, original spare tire, original badges and grill, original handles, and all of the original trim and chrome. The interior is custom and hand made seats in front and back, seatbelts for five passengers. The rear seat is removable with a few simple screws. It has a complete set of casket rollers, but they are not original to the car. The tires are like new all seasons again with only 5,000 miles on them. There is no rust or rot on this car, stored in dry conditions for decades. This would make a great rat rod daily driver for anyone who wants to be different. If you did some body and paintwork to it you would have an amazing hot rod too. As you can see from the pictures the primer has faded and the bodywork is cracking on the roof, if it weren’t for this I would be asking for a higher starting bid. I am only selling this because I have other projects I would like to focus on, so I am not in a big rush; I feel my price is appropriate for the rare and unique qualities of this hearse.
