Joe, I do not know for sure he has one, but try to contact PCS member Steve Lichtman. Steve was selling lots of ambulance related items a while back and he had a couple of gurneys, at that time.

You looking for any gurney or one model in particular. I have a 54xl up here needs a home. It would be more correct in a low top ambulance or combo.

The 1959 sales brochure shows a Washington Mortuary Products Model 54. That is most likely what you want. I believe Steve Lichtman had one in his collection.

For sake of completeness. Other contemporary options in 1959 were: Washington Mortuary Products Model 21 single-level, Model 52 (two-level like the 54, but not full "hospital bed height), Model 832-A (Called "Solo-Loading," a clear predecessor to the F-W Model 26 "One-Man" ambulance cot); Ferno (Not Ferno-Washington) Model 21, Model 54, and Model 30 (6-level X-frame cot, first year), and the various Baumgardner products.

As to the cot bar - it's unique to S&S cars. The brochure indeed shows it existed in 1959. I know C.W. Coach had/has at least one.

Thank you for taking care of this rare ambulance and restoring it to its original glory.

Lets see i have a Washington 54 and one of those washington 52. the 21 went home with the 58. But no special cot bars here that I'm awair of. Would you have a picture of it? I would think if one was using a washington gurney it would be a washington bar. And vice vers. The gurney will go on either bar but the bar takes there own mount to the car
