I agree, the M-M/Cadillac "Guardian" is surely lacking in style and elegance compared to the 1960-1964 Eureka-Cadillac "Hi-Boy" models.

The cut-out is to allow for a spotlight, just like on the "Hi-Boy." You can see the holes present on the one for sale, plus it pictured in the attached 1962 "Guardian" ad from Fire Engineering I purchased maybe a year ago on eBay.

P.S.: I'd be happy to trade the hard copy to a "Guardian" enthusiast for "Hi-Boy" literature.

Not unheard of later in service life apparently - primary sources are king. Here's an article from 1977 detailing how a private service there used a 1966 ambulance with a similar setup.

I took Barb out for breakfast in Norwalk this morning. On the way we went by the old Bargain Center property. A lot of the vehicles have been "staged" on the lot. The '62 Guardian is sitting right by the fence along Lais Rd., the front windows are down and the front area is exposed to the elements. Overall the car doesn't appear to be in terrible condition. The fender skirts are not on it.

As to everything else on the lot....the "newer" stuff is in fair shape, the "old" stuff is rough at best. They were unloading some vehicles from a trailer using a fork lift, kind of "manhandling" them if you will.

I did get a pretty good look at the Divco milk trucks a week or so ago. There are a total of 8, 2 of them are the short, slop backed models, the other 6 are bigger. Lots of surface rust, unable to get close enough to check overall condition better. Once again a lot of the vehicles at that lot are "rough".

I'm not sure how they're gonna stage all 700 vehicles on these lots. If any number of folks show up, parking is going to be a nightmare of monumental proportion!!!

You're right Russ... AND it's the SAME weekend as the "Blue Suede Cruise" at Norwalk's Summit Motorsports Park raceway which is a huge show car event!

If it is sitting outside and there is a lot of water leaking into it(windshield, roof vent, etc.), it is better to have the windows down a bit. Otherwise it would just turn into a big pressure cooker.

You're right Kurt based on these photos my calling it "not terrible" was probably pretty optimistic, sorry didn't mean to mislead anybody. Never got a look at the left side or interior.

Really "deep pockets" may be an understatement of significant proportions, more like "own a bank"!!!!

All of the missing interior components will be the biggest hurdle, especially if you are wanting it to be 100% correct. Coming up with the correct cabinet would be nearly impossible without having one to look at and duplicate. I see that it is missing some of the extruded aluminum interior trim including one of the original Vani-Shades(left quarter window). The exterior issues(metal work) are the least of its issues!
