British company that sells Ford Falcon hearses and limousines

dead sentence! A British hearse and limousine specialist is selling six Ford Falcons specially converted for funeral processions in the UK.

the Ford Falcon They may have been buried in Australia five years ago, but a fleet of notable examples have lived on in Britain as hearses.

On the social media platform FacebookUK-based used hearse company Cortege Cars has put up for sale six Ford Falcons, all of which were converted into hearses or limousines after arriving in the UK.

According to the listings, the cars were modified by coachbuilder Coleman Milne, who originally specialized in building hearses from European Ford models such as the Zephyr, Granada and Scorpio.

The most expensive cars currently listed by Cortege Cars are a pair of FG generation Ford Falcons converted into a matching hearse and sedan (named Cardinal and Dorchester respectively), with the sellers listing the unique cars as offer pair £43,000 ($AU75,750).

Ford dropped the wagon body as an option with the introduction of the FG Falcon in 2008, resulting in both Coleman Milne-modified cars being based on the sedan.

The grille, fog lamp surrounds and interior trim suggest that both examples are based on the “G6E” variant of the Falcon, which replaced the Fairmont nameplate as the luxury class when the FG debuted.

Cortege Cars has listed two other FG Falcon “Dorchester” sedans as separate items – a “Mark 1” for £19,000 ($AU33,500)and a revised ‘Mark 2’ available from Price £29,900 ($AU52,700).

The company also sells a hearse and sedan based on the earlier BA-generation Falcon, or more specifically, the luxury-focused Fairlane.

While the sedan was modified using the Falcon’s sedan body, the hearse appears to have been made from a carriage passing its taillights.

The BA Falcon-based hearses are significantly cheaper than the newer FGs, with the sedan going down the price £3300 ($AU5800) while the hearse is listed £3900 ($6900).

Coleman Milne isn’t the only company to have converted the Ford Falcon into a hearse, as Australian companies have been doing since the 1960s.

Queensland Funeral Homes The Last Ride is offering a 1968 Ford Falcon XT V8-powered hearse while Hammond conversions modified a Falcon FGX XR8 Sprint to carry a coffin.
