This is Miss Lilly. We are her fourth owners. She was first owned by Palm Mortuary is Las Vegas, USA, who she was built for. She worked there from brand new until going into storage at an unknown time. In 2007 she was placed up for auction next to her sister car, the hearse that took JFK to his resting place, at a funeral convention in USA. She was purchased by an Australian funeral home (name unknown) in WA, imported to Australia, and worked there until she was sold to a gentleman in VIC in 2014. That gentleman owned her until 2018 when my husband and I purchased her and drove her back to NSW without a problem. Miss Lilly had 7000 original miles on her when we purchased her. The funeral home in WA restored her gearbox, the gentleman in VIC restored her engine and suspension. The only thing we have had to replace is the float in the fuel tank and the bench seat needs to be repacked and reupholstered. Miss Lilly is a 7 litre V8 and has a big american steel white and rose gold coffin in her. She has power steering, powered brakes, and air-conditioning. We are currently sourcing a dryer for the air-conditioning due to it being removed for importation.

We have four cars, three of those are vintage, four vintage tractors, a backhoe, a car float, a vintage WWII ammunition's trailer, two box trailers, a flatbed trailer with a vintage stationary engine and vintage flour mill bolted on, a vintage 1920's wheat drill, a vintage camper trailer, a vintage fold up small caravan, and two full bodied large vintage caravans.
