In the record-breaking 1965 model year, Superior produced a total of 1,824 Cadillac and Pontiac funeral cars and ambulances. Superior sold and delivered 450 Pontiac coaches in 1963, 448 in 1964 and 500 in 1965. This doesn't indicate to me that the company was having hard times or that Pontiac sales had decreased in any substantial manner in 1964 - unless you count two less cars sold and built as being a substantial decrease. No, Superior was at that time the undisputed style and sales leader in the American professional vehicle industry. Again, one wonders where people get their "facts".
Your Superior book says that 239 LWB Pontiacs were built, 25 of which were endloaders. Perhaps that's where the owner got his figure of 25.
