by Hope and Sons Funeral Directors

The Dodge, one of six imported to New Zealand new in 1961, was the firm's main hearse in Dunedin between 1961 and 1973. In 2009 we added an identical vehicle (from Auckland) and the Dodge is now fully restored to near its original condition. It is a lovely choice for a traditional-style funeral.
