Default Introducing the 1962 C/B Ambulance

I am headed into the final stretch in the restoration of this 1962 Cotner Bevington Chevrolet Station Wagon Conversion Ambulance. Thanks to all that have helped me to secure the necessary missing parts, especially Ed Renstrom and Kurt Arends.

Thanks to Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and their marvelous time-traveling DeLorean, I was able to get a copy of the Monroney sticker for the car.

Thats great having a copy!!! The last six of the VIN stamped no computers then, $10.50 for seat belts. The government was not building cars then. I looked at the front fenders V emblems not the 327 flags did a little head scratching and I don't think the flags started till 63. The State Police cars here was Chevie in 62 stick Bel Airs (Birch Gray) 327 and the Turnpike and some other areas had Overdrive. They were coming off just when I started cop cars the shift linkage and column were a disaster thank god your rig has PG. I look forward to seeing it in person one day.

Great job on those front tunnel light housings and lenses. Were you able to find a set off an old C/B, or did you have them made up from scratch? Looks much better than those old torpedo lights that always seemed too close together.

Overall, very nicely done restoration!
