This overly enhanced, expertly made and finely detailed coach in radiant red is constructed of steel and fine hardwoods. The exterior coach body panels are decorated in gold leaf vinyl. To the left and right of the door (on either side) are two stained glass rose window panels. Emblazoned on the door itself is an artistically hand-painted landscape. Added features to the exterior are the brass and ebonized coach lights and a custom replica scatter gun. Pin striped wheels and undercarriage. Instead of steel springs, the coach body rests on leather "thoroughbraces," made of strips of thick bullhide. Leather front and rear boot together with the curtains (as well as all the seat cushions on the coach) are hand tooled and Amish made. Extensive work has been done to the interior. Crafted in Mahogany with some delightfully added exotic wood inlays. The roof of the coach is of a wagon wheel design with a blond wood inlay featured their as well. Battery powered wall sconces and brass rivets add a tasteful addition to the atmosphere of the inside. The steel roof rack can be removed so this coach can easily roll into any 7 foot double-door entryway. This lot also comes with its own custom enclosed trailer for transport of your new custom coach.
