I think any asking price over $2000 should justify pulling it out of the weeds for the photo shoot. Could have bought a '54 Superior Pontiac ambulance in similar condition for $450 2+ years ago.

No doubt about it....this appears to be a National-Pontiac.

The one piece of trim missing may be a challenge to find. It would be pontiac only. But it should be standard trim. I gave 1500 for mine about 8 grand ago.
