Great find! I've only seen these Criterion models in pictures.

Also, if it's a combination, shouldn't there be jump seats? My Superior book is at home, so I can't go look these up...

Should have read the ad closer. While a Calgary ad the car is in Kelowna (~6 hr drive from here), sorry.

Is it a combo or and end loader? I don't see any jump seats. A straight end loader would have to be fairly uncommon.

Pontiac hearses were very popular in Canada in this era, with the majority being endloaders (as seen here).

I am sure the funeral home that ordered the car wanted it to be an end loader without the jump seats. All these pro cars are nearly hand-built, so you could get them any way you wanted them........

The 72 C/B I got was a limousine style endloader ,which I thought was a little odd.

I always thought the stepped-up roof meant an ambulance, so this is a nice surprise to see some different styling on a pure funeral coach! I've only seen 1 other pure funeral coach on a Pontiac chassis...........:Exclamation:

The original 1958 S/P hearses (landau and limousine), combinations, and lowtop ambulances all had the stepped roof as seen on the car advertised here. Because of objections voiced by potential customers, Superior re-designed it early in the model year without the step, as seen on this combination:

Why? I can't be the only one that has seen a couple dozen limo style endloaders.

All 1958 S/P hightop ambulances had this roof:

I was thinking the same thing.
