Photos of this 1947 Buick Roadmaster hearse surfaced around this time last year, but recently it’s been garnering attention again. According to Cult of Weird, this 18-window, Buick Roadmaster hearse has been rotting in a Greek field for decades, and it was for sale.
Numbers state the 1947 Buick was built in Flint, Michigan, then somehow the hearse made its way to Greece with a Mercedes-Benz engine under the hood, and 1956 Chevrolet taillights and bumper. It’s likely the car was coachbuilt upon its arrival in Greece.
But, taking the design in, it’s such an accurate representation of everything we love about the rocket age. Optimism in automotive design rang true, even in a hearse of all places.
We’d love to know if the vehicle is still sitting in a Greek field, or if someone finally snapped up the unique piece of motoring history.
