Default 1964 Superior Pontiac ambulance

Any idea who sold and/or bought this? It was only on eBay about 4-5 hours before someone clicked the buy it now button. Looks like it might have been a good buy for someone.

NO, but I wish it would had been me! $14-K seems reasonable for what it is from the pictures and description at least. MM

looks to have been a decent restoration. but it still anuses me that one would put that money into the car and not clean up the door jams. I under stand not pealing out the weather striping if it's in decent shap and all that but a little tape and a rattle can on the tops looks to me to have been in order. to sharp a car to have that hit you in the face when you open the door

There are always going to be things that we would do differently in finishing the car. For me, the red rims and the red paint in the wheel wells would bother me, but that looks to have been a very good deal on that rig with all of the equipment that was included with it!

It looks like it was worth the money. But, sometimes when you buy the car and start to really look at it, you find out that it still needs restoration. I am not speaking about this car in particular, just in general. Lots of cars look great at twenty feet, but how many of them can win an award at a big car show? At the
same time, I am certain to have $14K and then some into my '68 and it will probably not win an award, either.

This is the car that I had owned for several years having purchased it from a dealership in Minnesota who got it from the town of Porter. I finally realized that I was not going to restore it like I had intended and sold it to a man in Missouri and he put a lot of time, effort, and money in bringing the car to this state of restoration. Being from Mn. the car had a lot of rust in the lower fenders. The cost of body work and paint would have been greater than the selling price, let alone the up grades to the engine and reupholstery of the seats, etc. As far as the door jambs goes, I think he was just flat tuckered out. The fact that it sold as fast as it did says that somebody knew the bargain they were getting. Whoever bought the car needs to drive it like they stole it, because they did.

I am not a trophy guy at all. Having said that, my wife and I have won many trophies at local car shows. Sometimes we win, because we have the most unique, or interesting car there. Truth be told, I usually feel guilty about it. But,
once in a while, we have something that is worthy of an award, even so, usually I am just as happy when someone else wins.
