Japanese Buddhist Hearse

Based on a 1991 Toyota Crown Saloon this hearse has been extensively modified to resemble a small ornate Buddhist Temple, used to carry the coffin.

Constructed out of carved wood which has been painted and gold leafed, it has been further embellished with brass ornamentation in the traditional Tokyo style and the roof covered in real copper sheeting.

This particular vehicle was imported by a collector in 2008 and we acquired it to add to our collection of funeral vehicles. The vehicle is used mainly for display and educational purposes but would be made available at your request.
