Very nice, Scott. Callaway-Jones Funeral Home in Bryan, TX had a similar Mercury wagon years ago that was very nice. I liked the wagons when we could run them.

That Mercury wagon had a B&M CS8B in the roof, along with twin Mars FLs and a Sireno hill light in the rear, along with Red Unity lights on the bumper. They had an awesome 1960 high top Buick ambulance. Not sure who built it, but it had Superior-type bullet lights front and rear with a 174 on the high top, and a 28 behind the grille. I would've loved to have had that one.

I would figure that whatever replaced that Mercury would've had a Q. What you said about the Houston trip reminds me of my '65 Consort that someone had put a 35-amp alternator on w/o anyone knowing it. I ran triple beacons, red pancakes, a Q and an Interceptor on that unit; and the first run we made in it we lost light and sound power. Swiftly got that small alternator replaced.

Here's a shot taken from a recent Facebook post. The American A.S. in Springfield, IL operated these four 1963 M-Ms; two combinations, two ambulances. Perhaps Dan Brintlinger or David Burkham can tell us what colors they were:

Ron the 75 looks out of place. Send it out here. On a serious note they look great. Hope things are well out there. Have fun with them. It feels like summer is coming to a close.
