Every '59 Superior ambulance or hearse with or without partitions had suicide doors.

Darren,
That is not correct. Superior would build them which ever way the buyer chose as you will see in flipping through Tom McPherson's book on Superior Coach.

Around here the suicide doors were loosing their charm by the late 60s on ambulances. Too many right rear doors torn off by drivers taking off before medics had the right rear door closed. Big $$$$ to repair even then.
