Interesting how they incorporated two red lights (tail lights?) onto the hood of the ambulance shown.

Here are some Interesting items from the same magazine.

The swag drapes on the Pontiac are removable along with the beacon. This firm is still around:

My small contribution. Scanned this from an old FD mag (one of the few), I found at work. This place was operated through a GM (mainly Pontiac, according to local residents), dealership, and sold many coaches to places in Canada's Maritime provinces, including my '80 Superior.

From the August 1975 Casket & Sunnyside - Armbruster Stageway six door limousines delivered to the Schoedinger family. I was going to crop the photo to just the image and caption, but I decided to leave in the title for the article below it as it's a nod to my buddy, Dr. Mo

In addition, brochures like this one from 1966 or 67 were offered occasionally to dealers for mailing use:

Great stuff, Steve! As much as I like decked out rigs, I think that '64 M-M in photo #18 is a little over the top. Also, surprised that the dealer was out a year on #20, which of course is a '61 Flxible Flxette.

This stuff makes me realize that I was born 20 years too late, but if that wasn't the case, I would be dead by now, so I guess I shouldn't complain.
