It's rough. Breaks my heart to see this.... If I didn't already have too many projects, ....

I agree with you Kevin on all counts, It breaks my heart to see these rare pieces of history rust to death. Not only is it rough, it is biiiig and ruuuufffff. That is a difficult situation to beat.

Does anyone live nearby who could take a look and get more details? I'm certainly interested.

Martin Rousseau for inop oversize open transport won't cost more than .75/mile. Keep his number handy for anyone considering this awesome rig.

I like it! It looks to be in pretty nice shape too!! AGAIN, the difference between someone who lives in the rust belt and someone who doesn't!
I know it is difficult to tell TRUE condition from any pictures but in my eyes there is much there to work with. it doesn't appear to be rusted badly if much at all and I think thats the biggest part of the battle.

I like the curve of the high top and I like the exhaust pass thru design of the rear bumper. I suppose I'm just like everyone else who wishes to have botttomless pockets and endless time to save every vehicle I like but obviously thats not reality!! Hope someone sees the pictures and likes it enough to rescue it!!

Here's a '57 Eureka brochure to go with it:


Eureka's brochure artwork from this period was terrible, but I'm sure the specs will be of interest to someone.

Has anyone purchased this yet? Anyone gone to see it? Surely this has to be one of the ones everyone wants...

Weel I finally got some more pics of the ambulance today and all I can say is WOW!! Someone made a camper out of it so there is very little if any orginial parts to the interior and whats there is a complete mess. On the plus side it seems to have a good body.
