Looks to be the same ambulance that layed in a field in North central Iowa for several years for sale.

I checked this car out when it was sitting in the field in North central Iowa, but never spoke with the, then, owner. Although it is weathered, it is extremely complete and not a rot box. I LOVE the interior color and the cabinet! Probably all white rig originally, based on the fire wall and door jamb color.

That's an impressive survivor that deserves tobe rescued and restored. For the most part, it appears complete - even the attednant's seats are there! And that typically Superior stamped-steel medicine caninet looks to be all there as well. One woud hoope that some energenic PCS member will save this one.

I talked to the owner several years ago and he wanted $2,500 for it. No title, he had it for many years and also bought it with no title. I have a different opinion on condition though, I thought it was pretty rotted underneath. It does have a cool cabinet in it though.
At least its finally moved from its resting spot in that field.

Does anyone recognize the hand holding the torch embossed into the front floor mat over the transmission hump?

Superior started using this cabinet in either '41 or '42 in both Cadillac and Pontiac models. '50 is latest I have seen with it.

The '51 brochure shows the same cabinet...

I stopped at this yard today and the ambulance is still there. It definitely deserves to be restored.

What were they asking for it at this point, Kurt?

I didn't ask, but he is easy to negotiate with and would probably take most anything on partial trade, as he owns a salvage yard in addition to dealing in project cars and trucks.
