Default 1974 Oldsmobile C/B ambulance

A true landau ambulance or a converted hearse or combo? Cabinets and attendant seat look ambulance authentic. Flooring looks to be the garage epoxy special.

I believe this seller was at the St Thomas fire muster 3 years ago,tried to get him to join the club ,not interested and was gone when I came back with info.at that time I think he had a Pontiac ambulance,so now will try to track him down and try to sign him up.

No Kevin, you are the one bringing an original C/B back to life, here is your parts car.

I get skeptical as soon as I see Superior bullet lights on a C/B.

It looks nice, but there are a couple of other things besides the Superior bullet lights that seem funny to me. I suspect this is a combo, not an ambulance. And why would you picture an ambulance that you are trying to sell,with a Coca Cola cooler and a beverage can in the console. I don't know if anybody shares my thoughts, or am I alone on this?

Unfortunately, not very desireable as an ambulance and worthless to anyone interested in hearses. He would have been money ahead had he just left it alone!

From the ad:

"It under went a complete restoration to it's old glory days of when it was used to save lives."

Complete, positive, absolute, 100% lie...I'll never figure these people out.

so good look at the pictures shows it use to be white. and some one did a repaint. the restoration pictures shows them redoing the door jams after the car has been completed. so I would guess the open the doors and blow a little paint was not all that successful.

but all in all there was a lot of good money wasted on converting this car. it would have been worth just as much redoing the straight hearse.

then when they did do the conversion why not do it period correct? I'm not dead on when 911 became the norm but I know it was not 1974.

then to put in the split bench out of a caddy and one over stuff jump seat?

you can see the money spend and the though proses but why still comes to mind.

they would do this, convert a extra hearse to a ambulance Chug Water is the best example that comes to mind. but do it at least period correct.
