This stunning Ghostbusters Ecto 1 replica is based on the car from the newer 2016 movie featuring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Although it looks like something from the '70s or '80s, this Ghostbusting recreation is in fact based on a 1991 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Hearse built by Superior Coachbuilders in the States. The car has just over 53,000 miles on the clock and we are advised she drives well. As the car was previously used as a Hearse in West Plains, Missouri it has been extremely well cared for and is in good all round condition. The engine purrs quietly, the automatic gears change smoothly and the suspension is as soft as Marshmallow man. Inside, the interior has the original blue brocade with electric windows and electric seats, which was a very high specification for a car from the early 90s.
The project took a great deal of time and patience to complete. The car has been professionally wrapped in white vinyl with full Ghostbusters decals and comes with whitewall tyres and the original red steel Cadillac wheels, with modified chrome hub caps to match the original movie car. A brand new vinyl roof really sets the car off and with a hand built roof rack, featuring all of the props, ladders, flashing lights and sirens, this car is a real show stopper. The car also comes with interior MP3 player and a PA system that can play music through an external speaker. To top it all off the car has an official Ghost Emblem / Bonnet mascot at the front, which is an extremely collectable item. According to the chassis, the Cadillac was built at the Lansing, Michigan plant in 1991 as a four door saloon before a conversion by Superior Coach Company to a hearse. An ideal opportunity for a rental vehicle for children’s parties, weddings etc. Interested parties are advised to view the vehicle in person, who are you going to call; Historics.
