Build a Hot Rod Hearse they said!
Build a Hot Rod hearse they said...it'll be fun they said! Little did we know just how much our Hot Rod build would prove to be such an interesting, exciting and at times anxiety ridden experience! The build has been massive and has been undertaken by the talented team at Detroit Chassis, with our Hot Rod hearse being on track for fully functional use in early 2021. As you can see, he is looking pretty amazing!
Being vintage car and hot rod enthusiasts, our initial idea came to mind mid 2018 when we decided it would be fantastic and fitting to offer our Melbourne and regional community the funeral transport option of a unique one of a kind Hot Rod hearse! After extensive research we came to realise that there appears to be no other model A Ford Hot Rod Hearse in Australia, or indeed the world!
With our existing funeral directors business at Oakdale Funerals located in Mooroolbark, we know only too well that offering special experiences on the day of a loved ones funeral service can positively add to the overall funeral experience at such a difficult time.
Whether our Hot Rod is used for a former hot rod enthusiast, custom car enthusiast, Ford lover, or even if families just want to send their loved one off in such a unique and classic machine, then we know we will be able to help with the use of Herman our Hot Rod hearse! With his 350 Chev engine, there will be no mistaking when Herman arrives from his slow and meaningful journey. As a car enthusiast recently said, "who wouldn't want their last ride to be a in a hot rod?!"
Herman the Hot Rod hearse will be available as part of the Oakdale Funeral service, but will also be available for hire with owner David Allison, offering his professional and reliable hearse driving and full funeral directors assistance.
