Default 1974 S&S Professional Ambulance

A week ago, I acquired a 1974 S&S Professional Ambulance from PCS Member Jamie Boles, a North Carolina Funeral Director. This car is very close to the first Cadillac Ambulance I worked in when I started EMS in 1976. So it has some sentimental ties already, bringing back memories. Although the colors have been changed from the original Diplomat Blue over Antigua Blue as it was delivered to the Ralston Volunteer Fire Co., of Rolston, PA it presents nicely in its current scheme.

Over the next couple of weeks it will be detailed, possibly a new front and rear headliner before fall and just general mechanical fine tuning and hitting the parade and car shows and most importantly the International PCS Meeting in August.

Anyone who has information to share on this car in particular or S&S literature, maintenance repair documents, etc for the 1974 year, please reach out. Also as always appreciate any helpful thoughts and suggestions.

If you use a phone camera, this is often the result. You need to download the pictures to your desktop or laptop computer, and then transfer them to the website.

Paul,
I always down load to my computer and, for some reason with my new I-Phone 8, they are still turned some times when transferred to the website.

Great rig David! Glad to see that you got it!

This is true. What I do is once you get on them your computer. Right click and preview, then use the rotate button to turn them the right way. It will save after you close.

Congrats on the new purchase. It's a handsome rig and I'm glad it was sold to a enthusiast. Enjoy!

Nice car! Wasn't this car Steve Loftin's at one time? For some reason I'm thinking he posted it in one of his "cars that I let go" posts awhile back, at least the pic of it when owned by the original owner looks familiar.
