The coffin/deck area is lit via two factory fit roof lights that can be simply operated at the drivers console/dashboard area
All stainless steel deck plates and edge finishers have been re polished and give an “as new” apearance
PERSONALISED EDGE LIT SIGNAGE
Two edge lit signs have been fitted to the deck area these are truly bespoke items and are only usually found on much newer vehicles (we fit them as standard to all our hearses)
Each sign is made up of a polished stainless steel base and led strip the integrated sign material is acrylic and only needs the new owner/s to have their own identity engraved on each acrylic blank It provides a truly stunning and modern looking addition to the deck area
The engine is the powerful Daimler XJ308 V8 petrol version boasting 3996 cc and is coupled to an automatic gearbox with faultless changes throughout travel This is a super hearse and has only covered 48000 miles since it rolled off the hand build line at the Eagle/Wilcox factory in Westhoughton.
We take pride in what we do and have given this vehicle all the love it deserves both mechanically and bodily and during its refurbishment we took the decision to fully repaint the body in a more modern up to date colour This was carried out by a body shop whose owner learned his craft working for many years for one of the UK s renowned coach builders so it was in good hands throughout The finish is in Tenorite grey and would set you apart on any funeral you undertake with this vehicle.
