Unhappy 1968 M&M Ambulance

To show all of you out there in PCS Land that I do enjoy the ambulance, I am posting four photos of the one that got away! These were taken in March 1984 and it had 35,000 miles on it. She was original with no rust! A local volunteer fire dept. was auctioning her off. Bids were to be sent by mail and I was told my bid, although much higher than the winning bid, arrived just minutes late! I didn't find out about the auction until it was nearly over. So instead of finding a pampered home in my garage, she became the property of a rural mail carrier who carried lots of large packages and boxes. Need I continue?

Richard save that interior shot and the next time Bill gives you grief over the lifeliner drag it out. talk about stuffed full. hate to see one go for that purpose maybe you could have contacted the carries and traded him a cargo van for it. gas as high as it is bet he did not use it long.

Thank you for sharing these excellent photos, Paul. It never ceases to amaze me how some cars survived and others didn't. This was a great car that you narrowly missed and it did not get saved. Other cars, like Larri Dirks' 1976 M-M combination, were on the brink of no return (from being in the wrong hands after retirement) when suddenly, caring and able PCS members came along and saved them.

Wonder if this rig ever delivered an issue of The Professional Car...??

The vehicle you see is my 1949 Superior which I drove to Albany this year. I'll attach a few photos.
