yes looks like a Coleman milne zephyr 6 rather than the usual homemade irish hearses.

 

Be fair. Duffy of Dundalk have been purveyors of fine hearse shite for decades.

I agree, just usually you only see some odd ones, this one seems to have lasted well.

that was why I said it. Coleman milne would use a zephyr saloon unlike the estates made by Abbotts who used zodiac saloons.

HA van please.
"The "i" on the back of my Cavalier tells everyone I've made it.
It stands for "i" am "i"ncredible, "i"mportant, and it means everyone
has to get out of my way. I don't pull over for anything.
Unless it has headlamp washers because that means it's an SRi
and he's more important than my GLi.
Then I pull over and nod to let him know he's more important than me."

Farnham Mk3 Zephyr estates only, as far as I know, used Zodiac rear doors and rear wings.   The rear doors were taken from Zodiac, rather than Zephyr saloons because of their squarer profile lending themselves to Estate conversion.  The door angle is also different where it meets the rear wing so these had to be used as well.... 

 

Otherwise the Zephyr was as delivered by Ford, minus I believe rear window and bootlid.   Changing everything else from Zodiac to Zephyr would have been way beyond economic sense for Abbotts - they are actually quite different cars in complicated ways.   The Zephyr Farnhams did not have the washboard rear strips but had to use the door cards from the Zodiac.  

 

I know everywhere on the internet tells us all Zephyr Farnhams were originally Zodiac but I don't believe it was the case.
