If he gets $5500 for this ambulance, I sure as hell did not charge near enough for my Criterion. Oh well, it went to a great home and will get the attention it deserves.

By some peoples standards on here that is a $50-$100 car, tops...:yum:

He had this for sale back in October of 2010, and it looks like little was done to it since. No real input on value aside from I feel it's off mark. Larger pics from when I spoke to the owner about it -

With better pictures and knowing if and how well it ran I see a few thousand here.

Few thousand what? To be made or what it should sell for. Now Danny, you can't buy all the Pro-Cars out there even though you seem to be making an attempt at it.

I see a real solid ambulance , with maybe 1 tiny area of concern. is that interior shot flipped the attendant seat location.

I can see paying a few thousand for this one Richard.

I found out it belongs to Sonny Schrader who is a long-time and well respected Funeral Director in Bakersfield. He also has a really nice and very well equipped White M-M Lifeliner that was at the last PCS Meeting in Burbank a few years ago. He bought this one from a Funeral Home in Central CA, but I could not find out anything else about it's "origins" or a condition report. I know Sonny from previous chapter meetings at (the late) So-Cal PCS and he is a real stand up guy. My guess it that he just probably "testing the waters" to see what it's worth.... can't blame him for that. MM

I don't believe it is flipped. The high intensity light is in the proper spot and you can see cabinet through the window in the right side exterior shot. Sometimes people ordered the attendant seat at the head of the stretcher, most likely with a walk across floor.

I believe that Lifeliner is a resident of Maryland now. (No, it's not mine.)

And yes, by '75, Superior offered an attendant seat at the head of the cot, more like where we find them now. As EMS was progressing, the techniques for opening an airway and ventilating a patient changed and the EMT was more likely to sit behind the patient, rather than beside them.
