Car of the Month - February 2005
Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit II, #SCAZS00A2LCH33349
Hearse by Coway (Coachwork 2002)


In the United Kingdom the Rolls-Royce motor car was always a favourite when funeral directors considered as regards the best basis for their trade’s special coachwork. To achieve an appropriate solution for the difficult tasks of that special trade is a real challenge. Not least because major demands are absolute reliability and the guarantee that the car will stand the stress of a rather long life cycle. The vast window areas on this creation by Coway give a hint as regards this car’s inherent stability; if that wasn’t extraordinary the risk of the glass breaking couldn’t be ruled out.

Rolls-Royce Silver Spirit Hearse by Coway

Transport with dignity and style was provided for the last way. When cars like these ones are shown, the question why the photo-series was taken during an Annual Meeting of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club, is no indication of a deficit as regards tactfulness. Perhaps the idea that the personal mascot's motto of the Rolls-Royce of Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of the Pathfinder's Organization was complied with (that car did attend the meeting, too). The motto was: BE PREPARED.
