This model is the Oxford Diecast APH001 Austin Princess DM4 Hearse in black with chrome roof flower rack and silver body lines.

The model has no opening parts. To the front of the vehicle we have a chromed radiator grille. Either side of this sits the head lights, chromed with clear plastic lenses, inset into the body wheel well casting. Below this is the front bumper (chromed) and incorporating a centred number plate with silver on black backgound lettering [UVX 24F]. Above the bumper are two fog lamps, either side of which are the orange sidelights.

Further back are two side mirrors mounted on the top of each wheel guard. The front windscreen is encompassed by a chromed surround. Two tiny photo-etched windscreen wipers are placed below the windscreen. The doors are finished off with chrome door handles and the roof has a chromed flower rack.

At the rear is another chromed bumper. The rear lights are represented by orange and red inserts set into the rear wheel guards, either side of the silver on black number plate. Above the number plate, on the rear door, is a silver door handle and two silver hinges. To the left rear, on the rear wheel well, is a photo-etched petrol cap.

The interior has dark grey plastic seats with a tan finish to the dashboard and door tops, a black,right hand steering wheel which has been inserted into the dashboard, and a photo etched rear view mirror. The rear compartment consists of simulated timber floor and raised timber and chrome coffin "shelf", flanked to both the front and rear by four grey seats.The glazing is clear in all windows.

All wheels are of a "capped" hub style - a silver plastic hub with chromed hub cap and a separate "rubber" tyre.

The base plate is black plastic with a rudimentary representation of a chassis, driveshaft and exhaust system. It is attached to the body casting by two small self tapping screws and carries the legend "Oxford" at the centre front and "Princess, DM4 Hearse" on two lines at the bottom centre.

The date of issue is thought to be 2011.
