Ford Explorer hearse looks controversial with Lincoln styling
An unusual custom car named Combination Coach has recently cropped up on sale in the United States. Its owner specified it as a Ford Explorer hearse built by tuner MK Coach.
However, a closer look reveals a handful of details borrowed from another car marque, Lincoln. This just might seem logical enough given that the Explorer shares the chassis with the Lincoln Aviator. On the other hand, chassis has nothing to do with exterior styling.
Note that the Blue Oval tends towards bulkier, edgier designs in its SUVs, while Lincoln bets on smooth curves and rounded corners. As a result, the front fascia with sharp-looking headlights and a blunt-looking grille comes across as a wild mashup of styles. The same is partly true for the sides and the rear.
Aesthetics aside, MK Coach seems to have done a good job making sure the parts align with each other. While the Combination Coach may not be to our liking, it looks professionally made and almost like something that could come straight from the factory. Isn’t that what matters?
