Roger has carefully restored the A60 hearse over the last couple of years. Here is an overview of the work it involved.
Not only does the A60 get used for funerals, it has become somewhat of a regular on TV filming sets.
Our A60 is available as an alternative to our modern hearse.
Roger has spent many hours carefully and lovingly restoring the Austin A60, which we believe to be only one of two remaining in the UK. This really is a unique classic hearse.
Our A60 has also become quite the film star. Having recently made a return to the limelight after some years away from the camera.
The A60 featured in a Monty Python many years ago.
But more recently, has been on the set of 'The Crown' a Netflix series, which was first aired in November 2019. Not long after the first appearance after the restoration, our A60 was called back up. This time to feature in a BBC drama, 'The Trial Of Christine Keeler' which first aired the end of 2019. You may have even caught a glimpse of Roger on screen.
