I wish we could get it, but it doesn't fit our current budget/plans. Hope someone can find a use for it! :wink:

Yeah, I saw this the last time he put it up for auction. I was like that Looooks sooo F'N Sweeeet!!! If Transworld wasnt this month, it might be worth the buy, but I can't do it. Hopefully someone will snag it up. Maybe Ill take his pics and blanket measurement and build my own. haha j/k

My prop guy to the prop guy actually built one of these bad boys last year, It was amazing,after trying to sell it llocally, he tried selling it on ebay,after no luck it ended up on the chassis of a 1978 ford 4x4.
Not a HUGE MARKET for imitation horsedrawn hearses.

Hubby was supposed to build me one. *sigh* Since we don't have a good place to PUT it, that may never happen.

The tricky part is the wheels. He learned to do those for our Cannon.

Considering how many "Civil War Nuts" there are in our area - plus the fact that there are several real cannon in yards marking historical events - we can get away with calling a fake cannon a yard decoration. I'm not so sure we can convence our neighbors that it's "Cool" to have a horse drawn hearse in the yard.

I WON, the only bid!!! :shock: This is going to look Wicked Sweet just outside the gates of Famers Cemetery. It's going to be a long road trip up and back but with three of us driving we should be able to do it over a three day weekend. :D

We have one like it at our haunt and it really makes a nice display, always gets a lot of ohhs and ahhs!
Is it long enough for a full size coffin?
May need to get a new one of those to go with it!! Congrads and that is a good price.

Yes it will hold a coffin but, I was thinking of putting a corpse of a woman in it and then having a cgi image of a ghost like apparition fly at the glass.

How about the recorded sounds of a horse stampede playing ?
Horses were dangerous too! People got kicked in the head, killed , knocked goofy.
Horses would get scared and throw the rider, riders got killed this way.
The richest most flambouyant guy in Carroll county in 1870 was killed when crossing a stream, his horse threw him, he hit his head on a rock, or maybe he had some help?
It was up for debate.
His widow endowed a indigent woman's home open for any woman, elderly , who had no place to live (as long as she was in good health), that was in 1905, it is still operating, still doing what they were set up to do, probably the only such thing like it anywhere?
The building is magnificent, people think it's a country club when they drive by it.
It's called The Caroline Mark Home.

Road trip, heading north to go and pick up this baby, should be back on Saturday. I can't wait to get this prop back home and start playing around with it. Wish me luck and who knows I may get to see Jims place.

Well, it was a long trip but we made it. Drove straight through to Boone,IA from Hawthorne,Fl. and then headed back about 2 hours before stopping for the night. I had been up for 36 hours straight. We got up and left for Mt. Carroll and the Raven's Grin Inn, you didn't think we would come all this way and not see Jim. (Look for up coming post about this REAL haunted house) Travis the home haunter that made the hearse has lots of cool things he has made for his home haunt, if I would have had room in the truck I would have tried and bought some of it. I will tell you this I know why they call it the great white north. When we are done with this prop you will be able to sit on it or lay down in the back as well as towing it. The prop it self is built very well, it's the wheels that will not hold up, so we are changing them out with wheels we have for our cannon props that we are making this year and will use these wheels for the cannons. Here are some photos, enjoy and thanks for posting that link Kel.

"Something", Now that you have just made the trip and it is fresh in your mind, you can more appreciate my Great-Grandfather Bucher who was in northern Florida in 1865, then walked all the way back to Mount Carroll!
At least the war was over!
We are still waiting for his bonus pay!
