Default 62 M-M Guardian Ambulance - Auction

A Guardian? For sale? I believe you read that right. At an upcoming Vanderbrink auction, this photo was posted. It looks to be a 1962 M-M Cadillac Guardian ambulance.

The auction is from a collector in Ohio, who had over 700 vehicles. It's July 15-16.

Here's the link to the auction.

There's also a '48 (?) Henney Packard ambulance, a very unusual early-50s Studebaker airport limo, and a 46-48 S&S (?) combo.

I hope someone from the PCS takes it home, and it stays in the US.

This looks like it could be the '62 M-M Guardian that was in Phoenix!

What a fun auction! Some extremely cool iron on this auction!

I would say that it is the same rig. Note the same after-market rectangular mirror on the passenger side, missing roof lights in the front, etc.

In fact same rig that DVAP sold in '96 or '97 before moving to new location which had not surfaced since.

A close friend in nearby Sandusky has spoken of Hackenberger collection for years. Never once mentioned procars located within.

Horders are a different mind set. Be it dogs, cats ,horses or cars. Why gather up stuff you never want to repair or use.

At least it looks like these cars were pretty well preserved after the current owner acquired them. Most of them look to be in dry, indoor storage.

I will never understand those that hoard cars thinking that they are preserving them, but leave them sitting outside where they continue to rot into the ground.

Default Mystery solved......

Well, this post solves a mystery that has had me stumped for the past several months. Back in the summer a whole lot (probably 40 to 50) of very diverse and extremely unusual vehicles appeared on the site of the old Norwalk Bargain Center on RT. 250 on the north side of Norwalk.

Then in the fall, a bunch more appeared on the old Wolohan Lumber lot in Avery, including about 8 Divcos. The day I spotted them, we didn't have a camera with us. Next time we went over that way we took the camera, but Certain-Teed Corp. (right next door) had jammed the front part of the lot full of shingles. We weren't able to any kind of photos due to heavy brush along the fence, and shingles blocking the rest of the view. I've planned on going over there when the shingles move out and before the brush grows in and get some photos.


Now I've got more information, I can do some detective work on this project. Those Divcos appear to be in fairly good shape. I'm real curious where the indoor storage photos were take....a visit to the local Fire Chief should get me that answer.

More information to follow when I get it.

I just had Barb look at the indoor photos and she says they are inside the old Norwalk Bargain Center, I can't argue with her..... looks like it.

Does that mean that these cars and trucks are going to be sold at bargain prices??
