Default Not THE "You-Know-What" Ambulance

You'll never guess what I found today in a storage lot in Virginia. Yeah, it's THE.... No it's not, but it almost is.

It's rough but definitely appears restorable. Of course, I didn't hear it run. I have no idea if it's for sale. I spoke with the manager of the lot, says it's been there for years, it's paid for on auto-pay and the owner lives out of state. I left my card with the manager who promised to pass my number along to the owner.

Anyone interested?

The navy must have had a money drop in 63 they had to spend and ordered a bunch of them that year.

Wonder who was transported in it? Heck, once restored, it can go to Barrett Jackson for auction.

When John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Nov 22/63 his body was flown back to Washington D.C at the airport a navy ambulance met the plane and transported the body,this car appears to be the same year but no matter what the sale houses state it is not the same one.that one was destroyed at the request of the U.S attorney general Robert Kennedy.{his Brother}.hopefully others will fill in more details...
