My '75 Superior 54" ambulance was originally black over black, when built for export to the government of Uganda, however it never saw service in that paint sceme. The government of Uganda never paid for it, so it just sat in dock storage in New York. The Decatur Ambulance Service had it re-painted white over Omaha Orange right away when they bought it from Superior in late 1976 or early 1977. My '75 is reported to be the last full-sized Cadillac ambulance to be sold. It was not purchased from Superior until after the last of the '76 Cadillac ambulances had been sold. The door jambs remain black today. My plan(if I live that long) is to re-paint it white over black.
