This is a service car built by Abbott & Hast of Monterey, California. These were known as "junior hearses" and were a front line work vehicle for flowers and graveside equipment, but could also be fitted with tables with casket rollers. The "junior hearse" was a formally converted station wagon, and examples have been found on Mercury, Ford, and Dodge chassis' but others makes were believed to be used as well. An easily recognizable reference for the Abbott and Hast is the frosted tailgate window with a large cycas leaf pattern in it. Abbott & Hast is still in business today as a funeral trade magazine publisher.

If you'd like to see more photos of Abbott & Hast conversions, see my photo album link. I own the green 1969 Ford:
