What about that rear axle. Seems to be a very heavy duty axle.

Not stock , probably out of a 3/4 ton truck.

Your best bet is still to swap the complete roof. A hearse would be the same roof. You can graft the tunnal lights on to it.

The car will still need a couple of doors and the quarter. Without getting the inside of the car stripped out, and looking for any bends, and taking measurements, there is no way to know exactly how bad the damage is. Did the car get flipped over on its side, or was it struck by something? Knowing exactly how it was damaged will determine exactly how it must be pulled before cutting the roof off. It will definitely need time on a frame machine to do all the pulls in order to get some alignment issues out of the way before cutting the roof. There are a lot of stress that will be relieved once the roof is cut, and that stress must be mitigated before cutting. I have replaced roofs, and it isn't as simple as cutting at the pillars and welding. This is one case where repairing rust would be a lot easier than repairing sheet metal.

The Coach is JUNK!!!! Ask the man with a 13 acre junkyard (OOPS salvage yard sorry about that showing my age).There are too many better ones out there that are worth saving. Please save another!!!!

Do you have any of the other parts to save the car like the door and the quarter window?
