Viking Coachworks - 1981-present - Sanford, Florida


   

Viking Coachworks - 2300 Old Lake Mary Road, Sanford, FL 32773 (800) 780-9012 or  (407) 321-2020

Welcome to Viking Coachworks we have been a manufacturer of  the finest quality limousines since 1981.   Viking produces 120", 100", 85" and 70" World Class stretch Lincoln limousines as well as Cadillac models up to 130".

Viking was one of the first coach builders to be certified by Ford as a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) and by Cadillac as a Cadillac Master Coach Builder (CMC).  Qualifications for QVM and CMC status are based on a rigorous and intensive certification process.  Both Lincoln and Cadillac have certification programs to ensure the safety and quality of the modifications.   As a QVM and a CMC coach builder we meet or exceed the federal safety standards.   This greatly reduces the liability of the operator.

In addition, only QVM and CMC coach builders can give the operator the manufacturer's warranty.

Viking Coachworks offers the best "Total Package" in the industry when you consider all the variables -- price, value, warranty, service, financing and the ease of the transaction.

Icy Cold Air Conditioning

All Viking limousines have powerful dual A/C units.  The secondary unit for cooling only, provides the passengers with an extremely cool and comfortable ride.  We use an extra large auxiliary condenser which is standard equipment on each unit.  These are the strongest and "coolest" A/C units available on the market today, built to keep you comfortable even in the hottest Florida climate.

Superior Insulation

Viking uses the finest quality bubble Reflectix aluminum insulation.  The floor has the best insulation in the business.  Viking starts with a half inch of construction sheeting, topped by a layer of 15 lb. thick durable felt.   Our next step is to add 3/16 inch closed cell foam padding and a 10 ounce strong jute carpet padding.  Finally, a durable, yet plush, carpeting is added.  This results in  superior insulation from outside noise, heat and invasive environmental factors.

Dual Insulated Ice & Bottle Storage

Extra efficient thermal insulation around the dual Viking ice chests and champagne servers make these storage areas stay colder much longer.

Life Time Guaranteed Handcrafted Wiring

All Viking electrical systems are carefully and meticulously hand wired by our skilled electrical engineers.  Each handcrafted electrical system is exclusively manufactured by Mastrcon and has a lifetime guarantee for the original owner.  All the internal and external wiring conforms to SAE standards which are required by both QVM and CMC.  This ensures driver and passenger safety.

Strong Side Impact Protection

Full length frame steel reinforced high-strength 11 gauge rectangular tubing combined with four additional Ford posts in the center panel provides superior side impact crash protection.  Viking provides the most secure protection available and meets or exceeds all QVM, CMC and federal safety standards.

Galvaneel Steel

Every sheet metal component of the Viking limousine conversion is "GALVANEEL" steel, floor to roof.  The Galvaneel steel used by Viking is the surest rust and corrosion prevention in the limousine industry.
