Good to see a real nice car go to a well deserved home. Hope you have a garage for it. Any plans or leaving it as is? It looks to need very little to be pristine.

Default great riding vehicle!

Those C/B Oldsmobiles all had a better ride than any Cadillacs (in my opinion). The '73 C/B Olds ambulance I had was like riding on marshmellows...........

Great car!

Default That Takes Me Back

Congrats Steve, car looks great. Reminds me of a combo Stier Israel Funeral Home ran back in the day. I always loved the look of the C/Bs.

Does anyone here have an extra roof plug for this era M-M or C/B?

I'm working on getting a metal garage built, and will rent storage space until it's completed.

I plan on leaving it like it is except for a repaint (needed; will stay original white) and possibly swapping out the siren and beacon. I may swap the 28 for a PA15 or PA20 with dual speakers. I might convert the beacon to a red 174--which I already have--or, possibly replace it with a 184H-D (preferred, if I can find one cut to fit).

I plan to equip it as a combination would've been around here in that era...two-way radio, 30 cot (maybe a 26, 27, or 54--depends on what I can find), 11 stretcher, backboard, main 02, portable 02, some basic medical supplies, linens, etc., and so forth.

Please post photos of the sister car if you have them. Where is it now?

For those that don't know, this girl was originally one of twins owned by a firm in Indiana. They were alternated monthly for ambulance and hearse duty.
