    [Ball]Sacramento.. I believe that's the hometown of the band Cake. They're great.

    As for the car, it really just looks like a wagon with a full vinyl roof, limo tint and the hearse applique on the rear windows. Wonder if it's actually got the floors which are no use for the living.

    Have it shipped by UShip. You might get a decent deal.

    Was curious about how/if the rear was mod'd with casket rollers. so I asked the seller if he had photos of the inside. I don't understand what the point of a 'hearse' that doesn't haul caskets but he said its a 'removal car'











    Weird.

    Removal vehicle seems to refer to the vehicle that can be used as the family car (multiple passengers) or equipment/casket car. At least that's what I can find with a quick google search.

    Removal vehicle is what they use to pickup a person who died and take them to the mortician. No casket yet.

    Also known as a "first call" car. They put a body in a body bag and toss it in the back. WagonMan

    Since it isn’t fully setup like a hearse, it wouldn’t be too hard to use it for regular wagon use, given it’s definitely a base model given the interior appointments. I’m guessing the trim on the back windows could be removed and the tint modified.

    If it did first call services, that would explain the heavy tint on the glass for the cargo area.

    Guess my wife was right when she said she was scared I was going to cut her up and store her under floor of the 88 when we first started dating.
    Just throw the corpse in the back... I’d Imagine they’d roll around back there.

    I would bet $0.25 it did not come with them. That is a nice grey color. Always thought it was the best color for a steel side. No roof rack.
    Could be added right on top of the vinyl.

    Just hope the body bags did not leak all over the car. Removing bodies is nasty work.

    The CP tail lights look really weird without the chrome trim to frame them out.




    Saved the rest of the images for when the ad gets deleted.

    Oh, so THAT'S what everyone's talking about with the hackjob bodywork Ford did to the Mercury wagons. You can see the outline of where the Ford tail light goes...

    In most ways I prefer the Mercury boxes over the Ford ones, but for wagons, the Ford looks better from behind (IMHO).

    Also, I'd daily drive that.
