Parks Superior Sales is my 1st Choice because they build a relationship with their customer, learn their needs and help them select industry related vehicles that fit their business! The Customer Service, Helpfulness, and Expert Advice is why we keep going back. We recently took delivery of our new MK Coach Company Lincoln MKT “TOWN CAR” Hearse and a Federal Coach Lincoln MKT 44” Six Door Limousine. The selection and purchase of the Hearse was easy, MK Coach Company. They build a beautiful, dependable and affordable Coach. We also knew we had the need for a limousine, but were hesitant for the various and obvious reasons. Michael Parks listened to our concerns and helped us work through them easily with expert advice and great financing options. As a small business owner, any substantial expenditure comes with its share of worries and stress. Mike relieved us of those obstacles and made the purchase of the limousine well within our budget and a good business decision. We now have an increased the level of service we can provide to the families we are privileged to serve. Thanks MIke!

2011 1/2 Federal Coach Cadillac "Heritage" Hearse
 
Federal Coach announced their 2011 1/2 Cadillac Heritage today, the biggest change is the Cadillac chassis.  Cadillac has stopped production of the B9Q Chassis due to non-availability of parts for that chassis. Cadillac has announced that Hearse's will now be built on the W29 chassis which has been around for years, and has been Cadillac's Livery Chassis for the DTS.
 
Cadillac Funeral Coach Chassis
Specifications, Features & Benefits                                                                                      
  • Both chassis feature the same proven power train.  This includes the Northstar 4.6L DOHC V8 engine, with a heavy-duty, engine oil cooling system, along with a 4-speed automatic, electronically controlled Hydra-matic 4T80-E transmission with overdrive.
  • The 4-wheel independent suspension (of the W29) is engineered and manufactured to carry the weight and load of a funeral coach.  Along with the power, Magnasteer, variable-assist, rack-and-pinion steering, funeral directors should expect a much smoother ride. 
  • The braking system on the W29 is based on the livery sedan model, and features 4-wheel antilock disc brakes.  Additionally, the brake pedal will have a more retail vehicle/controlled feel compared to the hydro-boost system. 
  • The coach features improved handling and maneuverability.   A 10.6% improvement in turning radius allows the coach to more easily navigate through tight, winding cemetery roads. 
  • The vehicle offers significantly better gas mileage.  Prior to conversion, the W29 gets 15 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway vs. 12 and 16 respectively on the B9Q.  That’s a 25% improvement for the city, and nearly a 44% improvement for highway. 
  • Should tire replacement become necessary, the cost of the P235/55R17 is 35% less than the other tire, and the availability and choice of tires are much improved. 
  • All other funeral coach chassis features are virtually identical.  As you can see, the key interior, exterior and mechanical attributes of these chassis are the same. 
  • The proven reliability and specific design of the W29 will equate to guaranteed reliability and reduced service expenses for the life of the vehicle.

Eagle Coach announces their 2011 1/2 Cadillac "Kingsley" Hearse.

Cadillac has made a change in the Cadillac DTS chassis that coachbuilders use for funeral coaches, up to today Cadillac has provided coachbuilders with a B9Q chassis, which was specifically made for a hearse conversion. As of 3-7-2011 Cadillac will no longer offer the B9Q chassis and has made availble to the funeral coach industry there W29 chassis, which has traditionally been Cadillac Livery Chassis. Due to the loss of several of Cadillac's key vendors over the last couple of years, Cadillac can no longer purchase key parts that they need to make the B9Q chassis, which is the reason they have made this change.

Amelia, OH—Eagle Coach Company is proud to announce the next step in the evolution of the funeral coach: the Eagle Echelon. The new coach brings modern styling to the already-established Eagle pillars of quality and innovation. The Echelon not only represents a hallmark of funeral coach modernization, it also stands at the forefront of a series of exciting new professional vehicles and features Eagle is unveiling in the coming months.

The Echelon updates, even further, the elegance of Eagle's funeral coach product lineup with an all-new contemporary style. It is built with a one-piece body and roof cap that is painted as opposed to the standard vinyl covering. In addition, the body is constructed from composite materials, for a durable, never-rust finish.

The Echelon's unique glass insert roof and sloping rear windows allow for extra light on the interior of this contemporary limousine-styled funeral coach. Other features include a stainless steel flush mount landau bows, exterior opera lights, polished aluminum drip rails, and waterfall-styled interior wheel well covers. Further, each Echelon coach comes standard with an integrated urn enclave, as well as six directionally mounted, ceiling accent lights for increased interior illumination and functionality.

The Echelon fuses traditional elegance with contemporary flair. The limited edition coach is available for order now, with deliveries beginning in the Spring 2008 timeframe.

In addition to the new Echelon coach, Eagle is also launching the Echelon-L, a professional six-door limousine with the modernism of the Echelon line, that along with the Echelon coach, maintains the crisp styling of the Cadillac DTS. The Echelon-L is manufactured with a 46-inch wheelbase extension for optimum legroom, and a 4-inch raised roof that allows for greater interior headroom and comfort. It also features a painted top, polished aluminum drip rails, as well as exterior opera lights. Funeral directors who embrace the all-new, contemporary Echelon coach will find that the Echelon-L is the perfect coach mate for their professional vehicle fleet.

The Echelon-L is yet another industry-leading step forward from Eagle Coach Company. It will be available in limited numbers from mid November through December 2007, with full-scale production commencing in January 2008.

This Fall, Eagle is also introducing a new first call vehicle. It comes on the new contemporarily-styled Chrysler Town & Country LX and Touring vans, but maintains the same features and functionality the industry has come to expect from Eagle Coach Company. The new 2008 Town & Country first call vehicle is highly versatile and may function, not only for first call use, but also as a standard funeral coach. The new stow-and-go seats also allow for easy convertibility. Eagle is taking orders for this first call vehicle now, and it is available for immediate delivery.

Moreover, Eagle is also proud to announce exciting new features that continue the evolution of its signature flower car, the Coupe de Fleur. The new 2008 Coupe de Fleur is now available with a fully appointed cloth or leatherette interior identical in every respect to the Eagle Ultimate funeral coach. Other features include a Formica floor, stylish shadowboxes on the interior landau panels, and waterfall-styled ledge board covers. Like all of Eagle's new vehicles, the Coupe de Fleur is also very versatile – the standard, integrated urn enclave enables use for cremations, as well as traditional casketed services.

In addition to these new, evolutionary professional vehicles and features, Eagle continues to offer funeral directors and livery professionals the highest quality products on the market today. They include the Premier, combining Eagle's exclusive limousine-style coach window, with all the amenities you demand; the Ultimate, designed to include all of the most sought-after features in a coach that is built to last; and the Kingsley, which boasts many of the Ultimate's features at one of the most reasonable prices in the industry. Eagle will continue to offer the Regency six-door limousines with a standard height, vinyl covered roof.

Eagle Coach Company has always exemplified the industry standard in quality, innovation, style and service. The new products and features for Fall 2007 and Winter 2008 represent yet another exciting step forward. Eagle Coach Company is proud to once again lead the industry with evolutionary new features for an ever-changing funeral market.

Eagle Coach Company was formed in 1982. It has been nationally recognized as an industry-leading builder of funeral coaches, limousines, and specialty cars.
