I know it has some damage to side you don't see and the rear bumper. Charles said Henry put quite a bit into the mechanicals saying it runs like a top. We shall see and go to get it on April 14th.

Did anyone hear a woman scream in the Denver area this morning? That was more than likely Terri when I txt'd her I bought another Criterion. :stars:

There was a Criterion privately owned in Lebanon in the late 1980's early 1990's that I only seen once out on the road.

Richard I did buy a Criterion it is in a Climate controlled Storage area with the other Vehicles. The Building has camera's and an Alarm System so it is perfectly safe. I am sure that when I am driving down that way I can stop and pick it up. After all Walmart is open 24 hrs a day LOL

I know that car. I was the second owner.

Original purchaser was the Dagsboro Fire Co. in Dagsboro, Delaware. I bought it from them. I added the bumper lights and used it briefly with my ambulance service here in MD. It was displayed at the '94 International Meet in Pittsburgh.

I sold it to a fellow in the Nashville area (so Jeremy, you are correct, it was the one in TN). He apparently sold it to the fellow in FL.

Richard, I'm seriously confused. Did you buy this? Did you sell it? What's the scoop? :confused:

Neat to get some history on it already. Thanks Steve. Actually I did buy it and still own it and hope to go pick it up one day next week.

He has tons more of stuff available such as:

1987 Cadillac limo dark blue with leather interior and 74,000 miles. $5,000

Cadillac 1962 brand new in the box dash pad-$$$ ??

1962 Cadillac crate engine. He said Henry kept this in his bedroom closet. $2200

All this and more hits Hemmings in the next issue.

For that price, she can't be too mad at him. besides, his lifeliner is messed up and he needs a spare so it was a practical move.

Wow, maybe I should check in my Dad's bedroom closet. I just might find a whole car in there! :stars:

I still have the bumper ends and the marker lights here if you need them

How about the center section with step? Hey Ed, can I install a full bumper without the step? I have the vertical piece and freshly rechromed side brackets for the center section but no step. I know one can be made but why not just install a full bumper.

Thoughts?

you can put the hearse bumper on the car. you will need both sides and the center license plate section. I have the center and license plate lights off one and the ends but not middle sections. the ambulance is cut different then the Hears in the center. send me up the one that is rusty I'll repair it and send it back to you. lets not do this again with another car. if one doesn't want to go to the expense of re plating the step then sand blasting it and painting it would be in order.

Sorry Ed, I'm missing that section and was not with the car. I still have the bumpers Jeremy sold me for the Lifeliner but the tailight would need to be cut out in the bumper.
