Austin Sheerline or Princess chassis, specialist coachwork for hearse.

Coachwork by Arthur Mulliner, originally advertised as "Mulliner Deck Type Hearse" (on Princess chassis) in May 1965.

Not arguing against Arthur Mulliner, but this is an end 1940s/early 1950s Sheerline - big headlights, body colour grille surround - predecessor of Princess by 10(??) years so much older than the 1965 advert date. It may be a short wheelbase Sheerline saloon, rather than the lwb limo used for many hearses; there was a chassis-cab version for special bodies such as ambulances. - http://www.austinmemories.com/styled-33/styled-46/index.html

Arthur Mulliner Ltd. was around since 1760, so they probably wouldn't change their toolings during a mere 15 or so years, unless it was absolutely necessary. ;) As they would convert basically any chassis provided and many hearse conversions were based on used cars anyway, it all sounds plausible to me. I only knew this type of conversion on Princess chassis so far, but I'm still hoping for an Austin FX4 to emerge with the same body style one day.

We'd probably call it an FL2 Hearse (the private hire version) rather than FX4 (the taxi cab) if/when one pops up. Similarly FL1 Hearse not FX3. No Mulliners yet in either batch.

The Austin A120/A135 Princess, 1947 to 1950 Mkl, 1950 to 1953 Mkll, also had a painted radiator grille surround that looked very similar to the Sheerline. As special hearse coachwork was fitted, the chassis wheelbase would be the most reliable way to determine which model was the starting point although the P100s suggest Sheerline over Princess.
