We have already written about special Saab cars – custom made Hearse by UK company Coleman-Milne – leading coachbuilder and they for obvious reasons, base the majority of their creations on SAAB platforms.
A five door 2001 Saab 9-5 was transformed into a stylish hearse that no other company has. This model does show the pervasive influence of American landau styling, which has been adopted, to a degree by coachbuilders in many countries. One of those cars found at Ebay Classified ad.
They sell a superb example of Saab funeral livery by renowned craftsman and coach builder Coleman Milne. This hearse has undergone a face lift to 2006-2009 spec both externally and internally and has been prepared by Saab Specialists with over 30 years working specifically with Saab.
And here’s the car’s description of the seller:
