No shot of the front end, but it appears to be a '60-'66 model. Looks like Lloyd Ray's old rig.

Jo-Han 1977 Cadillac Fleetwood ambulance

Vintage 1950's/1960's Fire Ambulance Metal Lamp Topper

OK, that model is about the worst combination of stuff I've ever seen. It's a Johan '77 front clip attached to the Johan '66 M-M body with a plastic "'71-'76 Superior style" roof, and miscellaneous decals, with the '80's style lightbars off the Ghostbuster kit thrown in for good measure. Doesn't anyone actually look at pictures before they build a model?????:soapbox:

And the "Lamp Topper"? That's actually the top of a trophy! FYI, it's a '64-'66 Chevy, looks closest to a Huntco/Trenton body actually.

The sale of the 1958 M-M hearses and flower cars in Chicago was made by Perry Lanuis of Perry's M-M Sales in Lebanon, Tennessee. I also have an original copy of this photo in just a bit of a different angle in my collection as well from his dealership files. At that time it was the largest professional car sale that ever was made.

Not sure on that. Just know he was a salesman on the deal from what I've been told. I'll dig out my photo of this sale and get it posted up this week sometime. I know he (Perry Lanius) was classified with M-M as a distributor too.

I watch eBay regularly for procar-related items and am fortunate to have won many of the items shown in this thread. Here's one that wasn't shown but is now in my collection:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/260899899391?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

These funeral home informational brochures are among my favorite items to collect, as long as they show at least some of the fleet. Lyerly's was founded in 1957; I'm guessing this item was published a year or two later.

The fleet shot from this brochure includes a 1955 Superior, a 1952 Fleetwood 75, 1950 Henney and 1947/48 Miller landaus, and a 1951 Chrysler sedan. Their air conditioned ambulance - first one in Rowan County - is a 1953 Superior combination.

Lyerly's is still in business; be sure and check the link to their 50th anniversary photos:

The rear window treatment is ACC/Amblewagon specific, from what I understand. Not sure exactly how they did it though. One of the ambulance experts can probably tell you how they made the design, like media blasting, paint coating, or so on.

Design on a late '60s Plymouth wagon:

her is one that you may have passed up. but it just the ticket for the Stoner. it's a Motorola hand set that is shaped like a phone. it would hang in the back and the crew could use it to talk over the radio freeing up the driver to drive. we used them here as we only had two hospital we went to and they were on the same frequency. the phone type hand set was easier to use for the people with mike fright and made for privet conversation so the pt could not hear. one side anyway.

Garford ambulance - EE Overholtzer ambulance service (http://www.ebay.com/itm/360413297918?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649)

So every now and then, I like to learn more about the companies and businesses that played an integral part of our hobby. Digging around a bit, I found that the E.E. Overholtzer Sons Co. appears to be almost lost in history. I did find one interesting article though, that I thought I'd share. In the California Supreme Court records discussing a lawsuit with them around 1921, it sited another vehicle and their ambulance were involved in an accident during a call. They noted the ambulance running in "excessive speed". Makes me wonder, perhaps the same car shown here?

And in a little digging around on this one, I found the company registered in a 1912 Illinois State Board document. And if you mis-spell it as "Schenandoah" in Google, you'll find it was the building behind the Wieland Dairy Company. Wieland used to keep their early motor cars/delivery vans stored there. And I'm guessing prior to being a motorized livery, when it was a horse stable and carriage livery, the livery was probably where the horses that Wieland used for its deliveries were kept. And thanks to Walt for this information, the coach appears to be a 1933-34 "K" series Lincoln.

On May 13, 1865, Walter Chamberlain Porter was born to Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Porter in the old Porter home on Benefit St. Worcester, Massachusetts. He attended Worcester Public Schools and after went to work for his father, at the Samuel Porter Last Manufacturing Company, 25 Union St., Worcester, MA, learning the last making business. (A shoe last is the 'mold' to which every individually designed shoe is built around. Commonly in 1912, they were made of iron or wood. The Porter's manufactured wood shoe lasts. Today shoe lasts are commonly made from plastics.)
While a young man of 21 years of age, Mr. Porter secured a leave of absence from his work and cruised from Boston through the West Indies to South American waters aboard a large sloop-rigged pleasure yacht with friends. At that time, he narrowly escaped from being shipwrecked during a hurricane. As Mr. Porter told the story to his friends and members of his family, the boat was partially dismasted and was tossed about on a wild sea for several days.
Mr. Porter's widow, Mrs. Mabel Porter said she had understood, from her husband's version of the trip, while the yacht was not altogether wrecked, the party had the narrowest kind of escape. It was a pleasure boat of good size for those days, " said Mrs. Porter " I think the boat's size saved it from the storm." Upon his return he went back to work for his father and remained in the business until 1891, when he retired to the country and opened a grocery store in Holden, MA. (Holden is located on the outskirts of Worcester).
His early training however, asserted itself strongly and he returned again to work for his father, this time as a sales manager of the firm. Mr. Porter became a partner in 1897. On August 1,1903, Mr. Porter and Walter E. Bigelow, a lifelong friend, bought out the business. Mr. Porter took charge of the sales department and Mr. Bigelow assumed charge of the manufacturing end of the business. Each year saw the business of the company increase and the sales territory steadily spreading throughout North America and Europe.
European orders came unsolicited for more than three years, and it was the direct result of such business that led Mr. Porter to find time to make a business tour of that country to further strengthen the business relations which had been established. It was his first foreign business trip, made to acquaint a growing number of European customers with a member of the firm and get ideas to further increase its foreign business market. He sailed from Boston, aboard the Megantic, another White Star liner, on February 20, 1912 with his two travelling companions: George Quincy Clifford, president of the George E. Belcher Last Co., of Stoughton ,MA and John Edward Maguire of the Dunbar Pattern Co., Brockton, MA.
While abroad the three businessmen had visited trade centres of England, Germany, France, Austria and other European countries. Mr. Porter's last letter home was an optimistic one but carried with it a tinge of homesickness. He wrote that while he was in excellent health and his pleasure trips had been incidental nature, he very much wanted to return home to Massachusetts.
"The coal strike is serious," Mr. Porter wrote to business partner and friend, Walter E. Bigelow on March 31, 1912, "but the officers of the White Star line assure us that the Titanic will sail April 10 on schedule time. I have had a fine trip, enjoyed every minute of it, and have found business prospects quite bright, but how do I wish it was today instead of the 10th of April that I was going to sail for home."
Walter C. Porter, George Q. Clifford and John E. McGuire boarded the Titanic as first class passengers. Clifford and Porter held ticket no. 110465, ( 52) Porter occupied cabin C-110, Maguire was in the next-door cabin, C-108 and Clifford was in A-14. All three men perished in the tragedy. Mr. Porter's body was discovered after the sinking by the MacKay Bennett (#207). Both Mr.Maguire's and Mr.Clifford's bodies were not recovered.
Mr. Waldo E. Sessions, of George Sessions Sons Co., Worcester, MA., undertakers , was sent to take charge of Mr. Porter's body in Halifax from the Curling rink. Mr. Sessions had a letter of introduction to the medical examiner of Halifax , Dr. Finn, from Dr. David Lovell, who was Dr. Finn's roommate at Columbia college. "The White star line people are giving the people there every possible courtesy and the officials and all the people of Halifax are extremely courteous. The hotels are all crowded and the city is packed with people," said Mr. Sessions, "I was surprised to find Mr. Porter's body in such a fine state of preservation. Everybody is trying to assist in the identification of bodies and in getting them to parts of the country where they belong. All the ordinary red tape accompanying the transportation of bodies through the country is being waived to railroads and state officials. Usually there are strict laws to be complied with and hermetically sealed caskets are demanded by the law in the transportation of bodies on trains. All of this is being waived by the officials and it helps greatly."
Mr. Porter's body was released on April 30, 1912 and was returned to Worcester, by train, for burial in Hope Cemetery, on Webster St., next to his parents and late first wife, Louise. Mr. Porter was twice married. His first wife was Louise Philips, daughter of Oscar E. Philips of the Heywood Boot & Shoe Co, Worcester, MA. She died in 1905. Eighteen months later Mr. Porter was married to Mrs. Mabel L. Sanford, widow of Charles L. Sanford, who survived him. He left two children, Miss. Helen I. Porter, a teacher at West Haverstraw, N.Y., and O. Stanley Porter, a student at Worcester Polytechnic Institute; two stepchildren, F. Lyndon Sanford and Miss Nellie R. Sanford, Worcester; and a sister, Mrs. Albert J. Gifford, of 9 King St. Worcester.
At the time of his death in 1912, Walter C. Porter resided at 10 Lenox St. in Worcester and was a member of the Commonwealth Club, the Lakeside Boat Club, the Worcester Automobile Club and the Worcester Commercial Travelers Association. He was at one time a member of Worcester's Light Infantry.
The diamond in the stickpin recovered with his body is worn today in an engagement ring by the wife of O'Stanley Porter's son Jack's son Walter. Around 1997, when the movie Titanic came out, the T.V. show "EXTRA" did a segment on the stone calling it "the real Titanic diamond".
The Samuel Porter Last Manufacturing Company, formerly located at 25 Union St. Worcester, MA, is now Maxwell Silverman's Toolhouse Restaurant and Club Maxines. This restaurant is very elegant and interesting as it is designed with many large, old tools (laythe's etc...) painted over although none have been traced directly to the Porter's old company.

Correction: The hearse in the foreground is an "Art" model, not an "Art Carved" hearse.

And I wish the seller had sent me better pictures. It looks like the radiator shells on the fleet are all chrome and vertical, which would suggest something earlier than 1934, when Miller introduced the Art model. The note on the picture also says, "Mr. Murray with his Five 16 cylinder Cadillacs in 1932." I wonder if it's a re-bodied chassis? I could definitely see being the owner of this fleet and finding it easier to replace the hearse body to match your four limousines, than to buy four new limousines and a hearse!

ALOT of hearses and ambulances were used for this very reason in the 60s. They fit the longboards, and they were very cheap to buy.
There is even a episode if Gidget (if anyone remembers that 60s surf TV show) where she buys a hearse.

Is this the hearse used in an episode of "Gidget" starring Sally Field many years ago? In that episode she buys a hearse to be used as her surf wagon for $300.

Andit looks like this FH is still around. Must have had the ambulance service "back in the day" http://www.phillipsrobinson.com/_mgxroot/page_10780.php?id=738883

Just noticed that the phone # is still almost the same (last 5 digits)

Yes they did, and a fleet to drool over! Also neat to see is on their website, the Nashville Chapel is the same building as the photo in Jeremy's link showing the '59.

And from their website, this pre-war ambulance photo.

Actually thats pretty close to what Ive seen them for in this condition. If the paint was still in great condition Ive seen them go for $800+ on some occasions.
Guess thats why I have not added one to my collection yet.

This is the first time Ive seen this shape though.

Bargain. Bargain. Bargain. More importantly, this is not a Miller Meteor piece as eluded to in auction. Leaning towards pre-'53 Flxible. Can anyone confirm? Helluva deal that slid through the cracks right here. Buy it Now lasted less than 2 hours.

Thought I resurrect this thread.

My main profession is in radiography / x-ray. That is how I found this card.

It is a great novelty advertising card from Eureka. Dates to around 1912 - 1915, just before they started building professional cars in 1917.
