I realized after I made my last post that I was getting a little off topic. Sorry about that. If I can do this correctly, I'll post pictures of the normal wheelbase coroner's wagon. I know that is not the same thing as the station wagon ambulance that this post started with.

Clones should have no place in the PCS. The PCS is about preservation and restoration, not manipulation and "sex changes".

That is all.

Do they have 1/3-2/3 split second seats?

I have no idea, but I was wondering if this group would know. Those are the only pictures I have of it. The owner said it came from Maryland.

In the 80's the fire department I was with had an ex-ambulance utilized as the Chief's car. 1970 Chevy Suburban. Rear floor was raised to allow storage of full backboards, second seat removed, cutout in the added floor adjacent to the third side door but no seat there, could have been one there but never pulled the floor mat up to check. no cabinets or compartments in the back. No divider or evidence of one at any time. Stock height roof, cot locking bar was still installed. Lighting was four lollipop lights, one on each corner of the roof and one Federal beacon in the center of the roof.

I don't know if this was a factory conversion, a homegrown conversion or a combination of both of these. There were enough details either way to support any of the three scenarios. It did have a step in the factory rear bumper also. No nameplate or certification tag from the conversion company either.

I was waiting for it to be auctioned off as surplus when it was removed from service but it was donated to a smaller department for use as a rescue vehicle.
