Bert – Classic Mini Traveller Hearse

Mini Traveller Hearse Woody style (1964)

Given that we are based in the heart of South-West Birmingham and a stone’s throw from what was the Longbridge motor works, it seemed like the obvious choice to consider creating a Hearse on the iconic Mini.

“Bert” as he is affectionately known (a nod to Herbert Austin), is our green coloured 1964 Woody style Mini Traveller. “Bert” has been completely renovated by a Mini enthusiast and oozes charm and simplicity synonymous with the classic Austin Mini brand. Complete with a bespoke coffin deck, the coffin enters via the two rear barn doors and then rests along the passenger side utilising the full length of the vehicle.

With its generous headroom (given its size) there is ample space for a floral tribute on top of the coffin. With the advantage of a seat for a passenger behind the driver, the final journey can be completed professionally in a classic vehicle which embraces a local brand and has an appeal to those who worked at “The Austin” or who have a passion for the British built Mini and an appreciation for all that the Mini was ever meant to be.
