Didn't notice that, but thought the '51 hearse was interesting in that is has little corner windows on the back side glass. Never noticed these on a coach before.

So this is a Miller then, right?

Southern Classic huh Adam! Love the 51. looks to be in good shape. Would like to get it alittle less to make it worth fixing.

Default military ambulance

I have pictures of a similar military pattern one with the side door that Exclusive ambulance used here in Ottawa. Would be a nice restoration to do but $20,000?

Correct Adam, military ambulance is a Miller. View second line of ID plate (which is mounted to passenger side dash).

Walt is also spot on about Meteor. Those little quarter windows give it away. Rear loading door (and window) are also unique but not as obvious. I've posted pics of like Meteor junkyard coaches before.

Neat finds.
