This is located in Northern New Jersey, in Bergen County. I would guess by the lettering on the side of the vehicle, it was donated to the training academy, and when they were finished with it, they returned it to the squad in Franklin Lakes Borough, NJ.

Nice car that looks to be all there. Last of the big ones. I would like to own it but it would also require a divorce. Great project for some one.

Up to $5000 now. Very well equipped in the rear! I see that it has a Federal Interceptor, but the speakers must have been removed. Someone must have liked pounding on the dash as these black dashes usually held up pretty good, even when stored outdoors.

It was donated to the Bergen County Police and Fire Academy in Mahwah when Franklin Lakes Volunteer Ambulance Corps retired it and was housed in side at the Academy until probably late last year.

It has a very interesting left sided upper cabinet, which, I'm not sure is a factory option.

Based on the VIN# it appears to be an early 1976

Thanks Fred... to me that particular lightbar looks out of place on it, maybe a Twinsonic or 184 light more appropriate...

Wow! That steering wheel is impressive! Must have always lived inside. That alone is about an $800 item in that condition!

Default Update

Paul and Fred were correct concerning the vehicle heritage. One of my tasks when I was teaching at the Police and Fire Academy was to care for the Cadillac and other ambulances we used.

After we hauled the ambulance two towns over, we spent the summer repairing the front floor, installing new carpet, and having the seats re-done. We recovered the dash and replaced the light bar with a Twinsonic from my stock. We remove the Twinsonic before we back the rig into the garage. The plywood floor near the rear door was replaced with new wood.

We chased the worst of the external rust and primed those areas.

Although the rig will no longer transport patients, most of the interior has been restored and we have oxygen, suction and enough supplies to hold the fort until a current ambulance arrives.

Steve,

I'm so glad you got this car. It is now in the hands of someone who truly cares about it. Congrats!
