Looks like they used Eureka style rollers.

Looks like the last time a had a MRI !

I think the sleek styling looks quite nice from the side view.

I have never seen the bier pin track go the length of the casket area.
Good idea for sure.

Yes, Eureka style roller surrounds used.

Silver gives it a professional look. Works well with the clear tube.



With most of what I have seen in the last few years, this to me looks nice.

These hearses, flower cars, limos, funeral buses are built in Australia by HILLIER DESIGN

Thinking outside the box and using hotrod and the custom culture for inspiration in designing these incredible cars.

OUTSTANDING !
Accubuilt and the other few coach builders need to see these videos.
The cheese wedges need to go !

After posting I see Doug posted while I was watching the you-tube videos.

All good

Very well designed and styled! I am a Chrysler fan, so that helps! I never really understood why there weren't more coach builders using the 300 chassis. They are better looking than the Cadillacs.
