Autotrader Find: 1996 Chevy Caprice Classic Hearse

Here’s something a little more special than your average station wagon: a 1996 Chevy Caprice … hearse. This is more unusual than the Chevy Caprice Wagon, which was an interesting car in its own right, but when it’s hearse-ified, it becomes even more noteworthy.

Here are the particulars: this is a 1996 Chevy Caprice finished in black, of course, with a red cloth interior (or, at least, front seats). Unlike basically every other hearse from this era, this one is a converted Chevy rather than a Cadillac — a surprise, but it can certainly pass for a Cadillac, and maybe it was better for funeral homes on a budget. It’s probably the classiest-looking Caprice ever, though, with nice white-wall tires, expensive-looking wheels and chrome trim.

This particular car’s details are also quite impressive. The Carfax report confirms it’s a one-owner vehicle, sold new in January 1996 and registered in North Carolina. It’s traveled only around 60,000 miles from new, meaning this is a low-mileage Caprice — and then, of course, there’s the back of the interior, which is huge and upscale, lined in wood trim and cloth that covers the sides and ceiling.

Most importantly, this Caprice is a bargain for such a unique, low-mileage vehicle: it’s offered in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, by a dealership called Car One, where it’s listed or just $6,788. If you’ve never considered a used hearse, now may be the time to do so.

  1. I’d get it and sleep in the back on the days i have committing and work and school and driving home for some shut eye just isn’t worth it. I bet it would be popular on the college campus I work at AND at the one I go to school at.
