Here is the (almost) perfect replica of Ecto-1 from the movie Ghostbusters

This Cadillac has been completely transformed to resemble as closely as possible the Ecto-1 from the movie Ghostbusters.

Movie cars unleash passions and many fans decide to reproduce the machine of their dreams as faithfully as possible. And sometimes, the result is simply stunning, as this Ghostbusters license enthusiast proves to us..

A slightly different model

The imitated model is obviously the famous Ecto-1 appeared in the first episode of the franchise and based on a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor. The more informed among you will however have noticed that this is a copy dating from 1960 ! We recognize it by smaller fins located on the rear fenders. In addition, they do not have its double lighting in the form of a shell.

More subtle to notice, it is about a Cadillac station wagon! Indeed, the rear part does not have a glazed part for a simple reason, it was originally a hearse

(funny for a car supposed to hunt ghosts) and not from an ambulance as in the film. Windows have been recreated using black vinyl surrounded by chrome elements reproducing the frames. It must be recognized that the trick works wonderfully!

A lot of work to achieve this result

Built by Bob’s Prop Shop in Las Vegas, this tribute to Ecto-1 required many hours of work. The original hearse had to be completely dismantled and stripped before being reassembled with all the accessories of Ghostbusters!

The engine is still the original one, namely the 6.4-liter V8 given for 325 hp when it leaves the factory.
