Default 1968 Superior Pontiac Ambulance $24,500

You know this ambulance history as I have chronicled it in the forums and there are complete before and after pictures in my album. Suffice it to say that it is a good, strong running car, with lots of work done over the past two years. It is a great parade car, cruise night car and a huge hit at local shows and events. The ambulance has had a nice storage garage, but that is coming to an end. So, I am considering selling it, if anyone is interested. It would be nice to see her stay in the PCS, so I will make a discounted price to someone from this group. Call me, or PM me for more information. Phone # 201-342=4871

Bill, that is one of the nicest colour combinations you could find. Sorry to hear it has to move on and I hope a fellow PCS member is found to carry on its care.

Default Price Reduced! $22,500 OBO

It is still for sale, so I have lowered the asking price. I will consider offers and even partial trades.

Default $19,500 Possible Trade

Just in case anyone here is interested, I am reducing the price to $19,500. I would be very happy to sell it to someone in our group. Lucille and I are going to start a new adventure, so we are no longer going to own a professional car. We are not going away, but we will be visitors. We just want something we never had before, maybe a car from the Fifties through Seventies. We are open. We have had lots of fun and good times with professional cars, but we are possibly closing that chapter of the book, we will see. If you have a serious interest in buying, or trading, let me know.

Default Is There Any Interest

I am curious, is there any interest in this car. I realize that maybe I was asking too much, but I have lowered my expectations. I probably priced it way too high in the beginning, but I have about that much in it. I love the car and I have really enjoyed owning it, but I am going out of the ambulance business, so to speak. My life is changing and I really would like to sell this ambulance to someone who really wants it. I will tell you, it is far from perfect, but it is a good running and good driving parade and local show car. Call me and I will tell you all about it, the good, the bad and the ugly.

I am very motivated to sell it, as I will soon be losing storage for it. If you would like to make an offer, please do so. I will consider a partial trade, preferably not a procar, plus cash, if that would help anybody.

ASKING $18,500 Please see the photo album for pictures from beginning til now. This was a longtime Oregon car, I have original Protect-O-Plate too.

Bill,
You need to get it to a bigger audience! Not enough people on this site. I have pretty much given up on selling anything on here.

Kurt - I'm sorry to hear you haven't had the luck you've wanted here - but I have to disagree.

Mr. Marcy has listed this car on Craigslist (and eBay if I'm not mistaken) for some time, and its sale has been advertised on multiple Facebook pages related to professional cars. This is not a question of exposure. It is surely a nice ambulance - so I am sure he is reconsidering what it will take to sell it if he truly wishes it gone.

As I learned - more than a few make big talk about wanting a "rare high-top ambulance" but when one comes available the silence is deafening. The audience of serious buyers of these vehicles and their related items is small indeed. The proportion of those who have good intentions/motivations that are similar to my own are even less. When it gets down to it -many folks who want these vehicles already have at least one.

There may be less people on this forum than the exposure elicited by eBay or Craigslist. But I believe I am far more likely here to find the serious and appropriately motivated buyer/trader that I would want to deal with. I have only sold one of my professional cars - and I put up ads on the appropriate Facebook pages as well as here. However, the actual sale to a fellow PCS member occurred through this forum within 2 months of it coming available. Couldn't have been happier.

Just my opinion.

I agree with Nick, when I was looking for my ambulance had people offer me cars that needed various levels of restoration to museum quality and the prices reflected the condition. But at the end of the day, the vehicle I purchased fit my ideal of condition for my first ProCar.

After all, I had a desire to own a high top ambulance, but was not sure after I purchased one, how much I was going to enjoy it. So far, I am not discouraged. I plan to own this car, take care of it, maybe improve its appearance a bit as it does not need much and hopefully sell it to someone with a similar entry level interest.

My ultimate goal is to still own a 1973 S/S Medic Mark in awesome condition and there is one in Southern Pines, NC that one day I hope the PCS member that owns it will see fit to sell it. TO ME!

So in my case it was not so much about the audience as it was finding the right car for me from a seller that I trusted.
