Ambulance everything works LIGHTS, SIREN.etc. Comes equipped with Stretcher! Runs Great only has 76K on the powerful 455 Oldsmobile. engine This unit has been fully restored was once owned by an "infamous motorcycle Club" in Montreal? Get it now before Halloween! and take it out and have fun. This car gets all the attention when out Cruisin' the Dub. or on the Highway. Call me now while it is still available.

1. Why not post the link so we won't have to hunt for the listing?:

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-classic-cars/...nce/1210106994

2. This car is an endloader that has been (a) sloppily cobbled up to look (sort of) like an ambulance and then (b) misrepresented by the seller.

well Steve, I was flying out the door to a car show when I got a 'tip' there was a Oldsmobile Ambulance posted on Kijiji. Just thought I would pass it along to those PCS 'C-B' owners. Certainly not done to aggravate anyone. Hard to tell on a tiny cell phone what it is from just 2 pix, are those Superior Lights? Glad you have a nose for these things. Thanks for posting the link.

I couldn't stand the suspense so, I wrote the seller and asked her to look for the build plate and she responded as:
I will look for it. This was in Fact originally a C/B combo unit from Quebec. The Funeral home that originally owned it, got more Ambulance Calls than Funerals so they had it converted to a full time Ambulance. It was then Sold to a member of the Hells Angles and he took all the lights off it and turned it back into a hearse! When I got it, I got all the Ambulance stuff from him and restored it to what it is today. Hope this info is helpful. I will look for the Number and get back to you.

It appears to have the correct CB lights in all 4 corners of the car, and a Federal WRL siren on the front section of the roof, and what appears to be a Sireno flat top glass lens beacon. It also have a spotlight mounted very high, as in the left upper corner of the windshield. There are 2 Unity red 6" lights mounted to the front bumper, just inboard of the headlamps. Some may call this "cobbled", but I see it as a Funeral Director outfitting his combination car to serve as a full time ambulance. One has to remember, that the way things were done in the US, wasn't the same way it was done in Canada.

The corner lights are double-ended Superior bullets, the siren is a WL, the beacon is either a Federal #175 or #176, and the bumper lights appear to be Federal FS3s (or similar):
