Hearses & Funeral Cars
Have you ever wondered as the hearse passes by, why that coach has caught your eye? These elegant, oftimes lavish coaches helped pay last respects to the departed.
1926 Chrysler hearse was first registered in Dunedin on 25 May 1927, and after restoration was registered 60 years later on 11 June 1987. The restoration combined perfectly with the Centenary of Hope & Sons Ltd. The Chrysler has been in active service since that time and is still in regular use.

Louisiana State Penitentiary: In 1998, inmates built a black, horse-drawn hearse modeled after an 1800s vintage funeral coach for use during the burial rites. It is pulled by two large white Percheron horses. The hearse is driven by an inmate dressed in a black tailcoat and a black high hat. Six pallbearers follow the coach on the road to the cemetery and assist with the burial. Inmate ministers conduct the service.
