Viano in any case, because the Vaneo is the MPV version of the A Class so you can unsderstnad me, i am not sure of which one it is but could it be a Viano Marco Polo?

I thought that it was just a normal black van

For me its the version like the Westfalia in VW that can lift up the roof, in the web site of MErcedes-Benz Espaa they call it Marco Polo :think:

I do not think that it is that model, the top of the roof looks different

@ccf: sorry, I have deleted my comment you replied to accidentally.
In Germany it's not sold that way by MB.

In France there is a "Marco Polo" version of that van, like in Spain. But as I said above the roof is different.
So it could well be a funeral car.

I dont know the storyline of this movie, but the car could very well be a French hearse, like they are built by Ducarme, Collet, FV Diffusion and several other companies.

OK, and heres what we are looking for: The amazingly unimpressive "Clichy" by Ducarme Carrosserie.

P.S.: Maybe better list it as a funeral vehicle than Cars, Van / MPV?

Dont know if for vans it should be like that, at least on hearse cars the modification is quite big unlike in vans, they still keep its "normal" appearance and shape :/

Especially French hearses often look that way nowadays (in many cases with way bigger windows though), but theyre still hearses. And regular vans normally dont carry a roof with a rail for flower wreaths like this one does. Nevertheless, the other Ducarme Clichy on this site is listed as a funeral car either.

As long as there are modifications (even small) they can be listed as hearse. What would not be listed as hearse is a normal car just painted in black :D

I totally agree, antp! I draw exactly the same distinction throughout my archive.

Then if we follow that rule why not calling these vans "fridge vans" when they transport frozen goods or why not calling them "ice-cream vans" when they are used to sell ice creams, calling a van "car" is not very accuarate, if at least it was "Van, Funeral..." :/

Because it is not useful to make so many categories, in the same way flower cars are mixed with hearses and other funeral vehicles. Usually all these funeral-related vehicles are quite specific, recognizable and identifiable (maker & name), hence that special category.
Vans are listed with sedans and other light vehicles, categories were more or less made according to european classification, i.e. vehicles which are less than 3.5 ton, which you can drive with a normal car license.
If you want to list van-based funeral cars as vans, why not the other ones as wagon? And why not the ambulance as vans too? Categories as they are now seem to work well, there are more than 150000 in these, I won't change everything :p

Who says to change anythign Antoine :/ , i didnt mean that, but classifying this as a car is not correct that's the only thing i meant.

And a funeral car has not much to do with a wagon...listing them as such would be incorrect as well.

:??: the hearse which are not van-based are usually wagon-based (or at least wagon-like shaped)
