Most Unique Builds

We asked hearsebuilders in South Africa to share with us some of the more unique builds they have been busy with recently…

Bustruck Conversions

“Bustruck Conversions converted AVBOB’s brand new fleet of Toyota Quantum panel vans into fully homologated Repatriation vehicles, which will be seen on the road very soon. These vehicles carry up to 4 bodies in the rear with a cooling unit fitted to keep the rear compartment cold at all times, the front cab of the vehicles can seat 6 people including the driver to allow for the families of the deceased to travel with their loved ones to their final resting place.” – Jackie, Bustruck Conversions

Auto Brothers Conversions

Auto Brothers Conversions (previously know as SA Limo) say one of their more unique builds done recently for a client would be the 2018 model black C Class that they converted to a 2 door wing hearse.


Otto from Hedo, who have been building hearses in South Africa for what must be just on 30 years, says one of their more unique builds done recently would be this Toyota Prado stretch wing hearse build, for Astra Funerals in North West.

Ashcraft Coachworks

“This is one of my unique builds I did. I had to keep all mechanical parts intact. This Rolls Royce is made with Aluminium.” – Ashwin, Ashcraft Coachworks
