Default Downsize Superior Ambulances 1977-1979

While searching for something else on my computer, I came across this today, which I had prepared in October 2014. Unfortunately, the Northland Website no longer exists, and it was a great resource that we have lost. Below are my notes, and possibly we can get all this information updated.

Of the 30 ambulances that Superior manufactured from 1977 to 1979 I only know of 11 of them that have survived based on information on the Northland PCS Website. I know of the following 11 cars. Does anyone know of the whereabouts of the 18 ambulances not accounted for??? I assume that the one that went to Saudi Arabia is still there, so I didn't include it in the final count of missing units. I find it amazing that the only picture of the entire production run that isn't on the Northland PCS Website (http://www.northlandpcs.com/index.htm) is of unit #4. I thank them for providing the information to do this research and also for great archive service to the PCS Members.

From Memory, I believe that I eventually accounted for all but one, however, what I found today was the original rough draft, and not the finished product that was published on the original Professional Car Society website that we lost many years ago.
