Vary sad to see. Some owners just do not get the importance of what they have and later what they did to a coach. Just sad I say.

Will if discription Is accurate it has a nice done body to put on your chassis. Those flames will make a good base for other paint. The nice part about this set is the body will fit 71 to the 75 by swapping the nose and taillights.

$1500 parts car. Someone wasted a whole lot of time & money on that thing!

Don't know that I've ever seen someone mount a cot bar on the passenger side. I guess I could see why, if you can get two stretchers in side by side with no need for an attendant, just never seen it before. Then again, it could be part of the "custom build." Something you ambulance folks seen before or done in your old service?

I believe that Bill Marcy's '68 Superior Pontiac has a cot bar on both sides. I guess, that way, you are prepared for anything.

U look hard at the body. Does it not scream DOD at you. Ex military set up for 4 pt normally. My 72 was set up for 2. The front jump seat will fold across in front of the cabinets. The 73 S&S landau combo I had was set up for dule gurnies also.

My 71 Oldsmobile Cotner Bevington (ex-military) had cot mounts on both sides. I believe that was an option on a lot of Government units. We have here a heavyweight contender for the 2017 cruelty to coaches award. DUMBASS!!:mad:

Just shows what happens with too much money, too much time, and too much beer on hand. As Ed says another chassis with running gear not as hard as a rust bucket to bring back.
