What abandoned vehicles have you seen recently? This was spotted in Maryville TN!

What would you call this Cadillac truck?

Ever played this Auto Race board game? I have not!

I actually saw one of those just a couple weeks ago and did a double take.  I think it's an open-air hearse.  Still, El Cadillac has a nice ring to it...

An "open air" hearse is usually called a "flower car".

(after viewing the link I'm not sure that's what this one is).

I believe Cadilac actually produced these / commissioned them , called Cadillac Mirage Sports Wagon

Abandoned, what call?, Race board game 76mira10

check out http://fleetwoodcountrycruizein.com/private_collection/private_collection.html#1975johnny

Says there were only 106 produced.

I wouldn't characterize it quite that way.

Cadillac provides a conversion ready base vehicle to a coachbuilder and they produce a limo, hearse, flower car, pickup, or whatever the end customer desires.

GM's portion is done once the car leaves the assembly plant.

That's my thinking, too ... it isn't a flower car or the Mirage Sports Wagon. I'm thinking this is something different, maybe even 1-of-a-kind....
