What about the earlier "Lesney era" Matchbox ambulance? Would that work? Or is it not long enough?Thanks for all the complements. As I was building this hearse I started looking into doing another one with a Futura base. Unfortunately the JL Futura is narrower car than the HW Batmobile. I picked up a Boulevard Futura but it looked about the same size as the JL car. I know I have a JL 1950's hearse around here somewhere. Hopefully it is narrower than the Matchbox one. If I ever find it I will see if this is something I can put on my project list. I gotta get me one of those garage dioramas to photograph my cars in too.
