I haven't listed my 1969 Miller Meteor Volunteer as of yet, however, if anyone is looking for one that is ready to drive and enjoy, mine is for sale. Body and paint by Ed Renstrom, everything in the front suspension has been replaced, includes upper/lower ball joints, upper/lower control arm bushing, shock, relay rod, and idler arm. Newly rebuilt steering box, brake pads and linings front and rear, brake hoses and new cylinders, and front shocks. Has AM-FM stereo radio by Cadillac, newly re-cored correct radiator. Front and rear bumpers have been rechromed. Rebuilt carburetor, and recent tune up. Exhaust manifold gaskets replaced, new head bolts and exhaust bolts, new valve seals and gaskets. Rebuilt transmission.
This is all that I can think of right now. The only thing that needs attention is that the clock doesn't work, and the speedometer only goes to 40 MPH, but the odometer keeps accurate count of the miles. Have a spare speedometer..

I am going to start the price at less than I have invested, $25,000, however, I am open to offers. Buying a car isn't the expensive part, restoring it back to original is.
I forgot to mention that it has a new red Armstrong Colonial Classic linoleum floor in the rear. It presently has a B & M Super Chief on the roof, however, I will be removing it and installing the original Federal Q that it came with from Miller Meteor in 1969.

Lower left screw in the bezel is to long. It catches the bottom of needle as it goes up. Did the same thing on the 67. There is one short screw as you assemble it. It worked when i drove it.

I sent you your finders fee in a USPS stamped envelope with a picture of George Washington on it. It should have been there by now. Just can't trust the post office to deliver mail quickly any longer...

There are statements in this listing that lead me to believe this ambulance is probably going to need everything, but for the current money, it could be a chance yo get into a Sixties hightop.
