Definitely a '69 Superior 51". Extremely solid looking rig!

I don't see anything in that pile of lights that remotely resembles what is missing on the roof of the car. If the correct stuff is missing, it will be difficult to find.

............but not impossible to find. There was a set that would have been a perfect fit(from a '68 Superior) that sold on eBay within the past month. I wouldn't let that be a deal-breaker.

The rear quads may be a match, but the front ones aren't.

Is it safe to assume that this rig came from Adamstown, MD?

Most of the lighting, etc. in the rear has value, except the round pair of school bus lights(one in the jump seat foot well and the other on top of the cabinet).

I know, I am easy to please, but this looks like it could be a good opportunity for someone.

Here are the rear quads for it! Would probably cost you $20 for the 4(total).

Seller states that there are boxes(plural) of lights and a siren to put on it. I would say that an e-mail would be in order if interested to determine if te original roof lights are there. Shouldn't betoo difficult to determine.

Crystal Lake, IL is "spittin distance" from Bruce Biancalana.

Not everything. According to the seller, it runs, drives and stops. He claims that it could be driven home, but......... The interior looks very serviceable. It definitely needs a complete paint job, but I think thisone looks awesome in white and I wouldn't change the color.

Could this rig have been white with a black roof originally?? I am seeing black paint beneath the pealing white paint on the roof

yes but you have to figure on everthig when you get it . like this 67 i just redid. the material was good but the card board backers were shot on a few panels. runs and runs will are different things. stops and the brakes are so thing they will cut threw the next time is another.

but it's one of the best offerings see in a long time. it is a superior so you know the panels under the glass will be rotten under the vinyl, they all are on at least one side or set. there are inherited things with each manufacture that is constant in the majority of there cars you expect that and figure on redoing that part of the car. some times you get surprise. from the pictures this one looks like in will do that.

Oh man. I'm very disappointed. When I helped haul this out of a field 12 years ago, this was in pretty good shape. I thought, when it went to Bruce, it would be taken care of.

Oh man. :(

As we were shooting this group of cars, I remember thinking to myself how complete this was (except for one window) and that cosmetics would be the major expense.

This car has been relisted at the same price:

The weathered exterior is disappointing, but it is still a very solid rig that, basically, needs paint and a detail job(I didn't say"just"). Hopefully, the seller has the correct lights to go with it, but one would have to inquire on that.

Steve do you I'm not sure if you remember, but I almost bought this car. When you posted it for your friend I was in the middle buying the 63. Wish I'd gotten this one as well.

I can see that Kurt, but it's one ambulance at a time for me.

If it's "one at a time", you made the right choice!

It looks to have sold! We will hope for a good home where the deterioration will stop and it will be restored. Someone got a good one!
