i think they are Aussie "Falcon" based.....a local funeral director in my area of the UK bought a few of these hearses..then found out that due to length, would not fit the cemetaries gates!!!!...he replaced them with Mercedes..tho he kept the Falcon stretched limos.

It's a dual-cab Ford LTD hearse

Judgeing from the look of the side doors and windows I would say that these vehicle began life as regular length Falcons rather than the Fairlane version.

The hearse is manufactured by a company called Hammond http://www.hammondconversions.com.au/PP/hamconframe.html

Who describe it as a"Ford dual cab hearse. LTD front and rear. LTD wheels. Deep side opening glass.
Chrome bumper protector at rear". I thought "LTD hearse" was a more succinct description.

It┤s very likely a Falcon or Fairlane (?) with LTD front (common practice in Australia). This looks to be a Dual Cab High Roof hearse by Hammond Conversions of Pambula, NSW.

Edit: Oh, great news... I didn┤t see Reg┤s post when writing this. ;)

I agree. If you check the other Hearse it has different rear door shape as well as extra rear quarter windows, indicating long wheelbase sedan

Sorry you are all wrong ! all three hearse's pictured were built by WD Hadley conversions of Smithfield Sydney Australia. Hearse number 1 started out life as a 1993 Ford ED station wagon he had a 1995 DF Ford LTD front and rear fitted. Its a 2 door single cab. Hearse Number 2 started out life as a 2003 Ford Falcon station wagon Its extended and had 2003 BA Ltd front and rear fitted. Hearse Number 3 started out life as a long wheel base Ford Fairlane Ghia Sedan it was extended and had Ltd front grill fitted. It also has side open glass, P.S. you can tell it has been made from a Fairlane sedan body by the rear quarter glass window's.

Cheers

Agree with this being a Falcon (based on long-wheelbase wagon), not Fairlane. One clue is the lack of chrome trim around the window frames, which all Fairlanes have. The rear door shape is not a clue, however, since that type of door is shared with both wagon and LWB sedan models.
