Default 1951 Chevrolet National Imperial Ambulance

This is a hard one for me to do.
In case any one might be interested a am having to sell my

1951 Chevrolet National Imperial Ambulance.

I have listed on Craigslist with a lot of photos and long description:

https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/...784859872.html

Asking price is $7,800 OBO

I just renewed my membership as I do not want to leave the group (What, and miss all this!?).
I just feel sad that I will no long be able to claim ownership. But storage space and health say to pull the plug.
What a kick, just when there is finally going to be a California PCS meeting.

Anyway, If anyone is interested in a very uncommon ambulance give me a shout. It is complete and would not be too difficult of a resto.

Be well and good to each other.
Joe

P.S.: for some unknown reason I can't seem to post photos like I normally do. Well, they are on Craigslist. If you want more let me know.

Good luck Joe, I know that life sometimes makes us change plans. The ambulance is a neat car, I sure hope you find a good home for her.

Default Good News

Good news - My 1951 Chevrolet National Imperial Ambulance has been sold.

The soon to be new owner, who is not currently a PCS member, has already restored a number of ambulances and limos. That is the plan for the National. Makes me very happy. Since it is being restored I'm sending along everything I've collected including a correct gurney and stripped mattress, etc.

New owner is not yet a PCS member yet, though he has heard about us. I explained the resources available that could help him with not only the National but with his other vehicles.
I told him that one of the things I'll include with the sale is a one year membership in the Professional Car Society, at my expense.

BTW: I've seen his work and it is outstanding.

Wanted to post a photo but still can not ??????

Joe, my 52 National is a Pontiac but lots of similarities, especially the interior. Tell him if he needs any pictures or measurements just to contact me.
