Galpin Auto Sports Halloween-themed Hearse - Click above for high-res image gallery

We generally don't think of a hearse as a great platform for customizing, but then again, we've never known Galpin Auto Sports to shy away from messing with anything on four wheels. That's why we weren't surprised to see this specially-built conveyance of corpses constructed by the Southern California customizer. The hearse features a Halloween theme including dozens of hand-painted skulls on the front and side, as well as a spiderweb grille. It's not all spooky, though, and Galpin has made the interior an inviting place to be, with a working barbeque, chilled cooler, and a flatscreen TV all in the coffin. Not a bad place to spend your last few hours above ground!

      Somewhat humorous, but I like it. Looks good. Hearses FTW.

      That's a car from Pimp My Ride.

        That's what I was thinking. It was one of the first cars they built when they switched from WCC to GAS as the shops that did the work for the show.

      At first, I thought it was POPCORN painted onto the car!

      It must be Pimp My Ride week in the auto world.

      The 67 Mustang from the show is on Craigslist locally too. She wrecked it. I wonder if the flame throwers made her crash.


      the ad. No pics though.

      Damn kool! Who cares if it came from whatever lame a$$ show you've all been watching? I had never seen it.

      Hearses are GREAT for customizing! People have been doing it for years.

      I'd love to have a mid to late 60's hearse on bags....

        I had a 72 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special with a Miller-Meter Landau Endloader body. That hearse looks to a big older, but it seems to be an M-M like mine was. Good times.

        i wanted to do this.

        Black out a Hearse and put 22's on it with Skulls in the center of the rims as caps.

        Then take a real coffin and fill it with two Kiccker 15" L7's And plug it up in the back.



        I also had this idea for a skull with LED red eyes that I could put on the back of an Escalade EXT. everytime you hit the brakes the skull's mouth opens and the eyes light up red.

        I'd change the lettering on the truck to DEATHSKULLADE.

      I have to agree with Jeff, that is the car from pimp my ride.
