Saw this on the "Vintage Ambulance Owners and Enthusiasts" Facebook group. It says National to me? Maybe Economy, Barnette? I am sure Steve Loftin knows! ;)

Anyhow - obviously something I'd like to see in person since it's supposedly local. I messaged the person posting the listing and asked if it was possible to see it in person in order to better discuss here, but I didn't really get a response to that question. It appears to not be the "seller's" car. From comments on a local car Facebook group, it appears he wants around $8000 for it although listed at $10500. If anyone is serious about buying it - I would be happy to inspect it for you. A few photos uploaded for posterity when the listing goes away.


"Now this is something you dont see everyday. A 1948 Chevy Fleetmaster Delivery Ambulance. Original.216, 3 on the tree. Pretty neat car. Front bench seat with a rear jumper seat. Came out of California in the late 90s. Will come with a bill of sale only. Helping an old man get rid of some cars. Asking 10.5k located in San Antonio tx"

They "white-washed" that thing inside & out! The front interior spray job in unfortunate.
