1953 Vauxhall Wyvern Hearse - 'Rusty'

We purchased the 1953 Vauxhall Wyvern Hearse in 2012 from a Funeral Director in Cork, who’d been using it for funerals until 1969, after converting it into a hearse.

Our Transport team nicknamed the car ‘Rusty’, and had initially planned to give the car a simple light restoration to take along to shows in all its original glory.

Once they’d began the basic restoration, they just couldn’t stop and for the next 3 years the team transformed Rusty from a tired, worn out classic car to a new and restored, shiny vintage beauty.

Rusty has since impressed at a number of funerals and is available on request.
