I had never even heard rumors about a D-24 hearse,never mind seen one.

I am guessing it came from Europe?

 

Duhhhhh! Says "French" in the title,and I was guessing it came from Europe.

There just ain't no slipping nothing past me,is there?

I think that car still exists. It's in Belgium.

Anyone here living in Belgium that can track the car and the owner down,and maybe document the travel and ownership history of the car? I think that would be a very interesting story to read.

Especially the part about the current owner acquiring the car,and his plans for it.

I would have loved to have found that when I was looking for a hearse...my main requirement on the purchase, anything but GM based....anything MōPār would be gravy.......I ended up with a Packy

the Portuguese model does not interest me in the least.........the Irish model I think has the best side profile....

real men were pallbearers, no rollers, slides and docking guide, with anti drift pegs....would like to have seen if there was a divider glass on the compartment bulkhead

Here's a DeSoto that was in a Swiss yard in 2013.
And a couple of Plymouths in Ireland...
The first is a picture from a The Seaflower trawler funeral in 1968.
The second is a car that was for sale in 1983 but, sadly, does not seem to have survived.
