AAA Ambulance, Winnipeg, Manitoba. '63 C-B Olds Cotington 46"

Veterans-Prince Ambulance. Pictured in this postcard is a '63 C-B Olds Cotington, a '63 C-B Olds Seville Landau, a '62 Superior Pontiac Consort, and a '58 Superior High Headroom Pontiac. Kerry and I both worked there in the early '70's. We both did a lot of runs in the Seville over the years. The other Olds and the Consort had both been wrecked before we started there, and the '58 Pontiac had been traded in on a Springfield Cornbinder.

Here are a few scans from a postcard that I just bought on eBay. The car was very familiar to me.......does anyone know where County Cadillac was located? I think the post mark says White Plains, NY, but not sure if that is where the company was actually located or not.

Yep......... that is White Plains.. to Larchmont, it is 12.6 mi - Hutchinson River Pkwy. Guess she was a customer.

I think it would be very interesting to go back and find all of these old funeral homes on the postcards and take pics of them now. I'm sure some are not in existence anymore, and others have been turned into other businesses.

You know some cars look angry or sad etc, this one looks just like this whale:
http://www.seaworld.org/infobooks/Beluga/images/beluga_col.gif
Is it correct that these cars were cut vertically and had height added in the midsection as well as the roof and other coachwork? Seems like an extraordinary amount of work for little gain. Wonder what the dashboard/firewall were like...

Wow, you nailed it with that picture. I always thought they looks like something familiar, now I know what it is!

I know the hood was modified by cutting and raising it. Not sure what other standard Buick parts were modified, if any.
