Cadillac Miller-Meteor Conversion to the Famous Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Car
Cadillac Miller-Meteor to Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Ready for Hire
A little history about this wonderful conversion
Paul Harborne and Tim Jordan have devoted hundreds of hours to restoring the battered Cadillac Miller-Meteor limo-style endloader combination car and turning it into a perfect replica of the famous Ecto-1 wagon from the classic Ghostbusters movie franchise.
Paul has spent a fourtune on creating his very own Ecto 1a (the upgraded ghoul mobile seen in Ghostbusters II) which he hopes will lead to a new full-time career for him and pal Tim, who rent the pristine vehicle out for proms, weddings and corporate events.
This car may well have been one of the cars purchased for the films as it was previously in Washington and it was common for film companies to buy numerous cars as back up vehicles, even if the cars were different years, sometimes purchased cars bared no resemblence to the one being used in the production but with movie magic they made them look like one, if you study Ghostbusters the car changes lots of times throughout the film. Our car as with the other Ghostbuster cars started life as an ambulance and was worth around $9,000 back when new.
After replacing the windows, the lights, the gearbox, engine, bodywork, seats and other items at Tim’s former garage – the pals have now putting the finishing touches to the car and it is ready for hire to wow people at your event!
