    Mercedes hearse in Malta.

    Ignoring the tragic event which resulted in this thread, the assassination of journalist Daphne Galizia, I was impressed with the design of this Mercedes hearse which would appear to be a one off. Anyone know where this was built or have photos of similar specials?

    Great design.

    Considering the cost of custom work, I'd guess that it is one of a series of conversions. Even then it would be pricey.

    Since regulations mandate that ambulances be truck-based, it would seem that hearses..and limousine conversions...are the last bastion of the custom coachwork trade.

    The Mercedes Club magazine I receive occasionally has photos of such vehicles, but that's a new one to me. Still, I'm not in any hurry for a ride in it. However, a shooting brake version would be nice. The dog would love it.
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    You don't have to be in the back seat to be an occupant!

    Not casting any dispersions on the small island of Malta, I would have been surprised if this was a 'local' conversion.

    Of course!! Should have realised it was born in Italy. Italians just have the flair gene inbred in them.

    Either that or they have more people die. Would make a nice camper conversion.
