its 1991 Cadillac Brougham Hearse, 103,000 miles for like 3k. Thinking of getting it and turning it into a camper. Thing is i dont know much about cars. Would this just be a really dumb idea? Do cadillacs hold up well over long distance?
thats the big one. i figured parts for these things would be expensive. probably couldnt find much at a pull a part either.Parts will eat you alive in my experience. Cadillacs shit cost a fortune. Sometimes you can get gm part number stuff that is cheaper, sometimes not.
looks to be private owner but the vehicle looks clean, although im sure that doesnt ammount for much. i got a buddy who builds drag trucks to come with me to look at it. the back still has the mounts for holding the coffin.Also totally depends on the condition of the car currently. where are you getting it? are you getting it from the morgue, or funeral service r are you buying it from a private owner? a private owner hearse is likely to have a lot more work needing done. if it is a commercial hearse you're likely looking at good maintenance having been done on it and very little actual driving, so the chances of it being run into the ground even after a hundred thirty thousand miles co uhld be low. they might have been really slow miles.... I believe everything stated above is true ish and that means it depends on the year make and model of the car. depending on the Cadillac engine and trans that's in it you may able to swap gm parts pretty ez. You may need Cadillac parts... it's worth looking into for sure. Personally I had a friend who owned the black blacked out hearse it had huge bull horns and skull attached to the front grill the windows were blue not black it was raised just a little and it sounded Epic he used it as a family car it's a dream of mine pimp one out and do a home. But my family owns Auto Parts salvage yards and I'm a mechanic and construction worker and that s*** comes easy and cheap for me
