1970 Superior Pontiac Consort Ambulance $8500 Offer

All of you probably know all about this car, as I have written extensively about it on this forum. I would like to see this car stay with someone here, who understands its rarity and would like to preserve it. I am open to an offer, I might even consider an interesting trade.

I bought this car from Bill Beetschen about a year and a half ago. I want to be honest and tell you everything I know. I don't want anybody being disappointed.

The Good
The car has a good running 6.6 liter engine, transmission is working properly, slightly noisy rear end at 55 and above, brakes and steering are power and work properly, emergency lights and siren work. I spent $4k for some rust repair and a base coat/clear coat paint job. The interior is good.

The Bad
The paint needs to be sanded and buffed. Air conditioning not working. Engine compartment needs detailing. Headliner needs replacement. The speedometer works, the odometer does not. The biggest issue is a weld on the frame using Diamond Plate and I do not know why it needed to be welded.

The car is really a decent driver quality/parade car. Sure, it has some issues, but it is a car that runs and drives well and looks decent. Before I spend any more money on it, I am willing to let it go to a good home. I will consider a sincere offer, or even some sort of a trade. Send a PM, if you are interested.

As far as I know, it is an electrical outlet that you can plug into. What you plug in there is up to your individual taste. A coffee pot, a drill, a color tv, whatever.

Most likely, it is a junction box to hook up a charger to keep the battery charge at its proper level.

Are you saying that this car has an inverter?

I am saying that I don't know. Truthfully, I have no knowledge of such things.

Suprises for the new owner to find. Still right on the money for some lucky person

The inverter changes 12 volt DC car battery to 120 volts AC so you can power equipment. We have several in stock removed from newer Ambulances. They are usually mounted behind the front seat under the squad bench or in the case of newer units in a low compartment behind the drivers seat.
