As mentioned in the other thread, Central bought the last five '76 S/C 54" cars built. Here they are a few weeks after delivery:

Units 61, 63, 64, 65, and 66

Steve

I would love to have a 1962 MM Ambulance to go with my two '62 MM hearses.

I wonder what it would look like with the white and red reversed. Mostly red with a white strip.

Great thread !
Darren

Since I've been on a Smit-Joure kick lately (even though a few of these have been posted in other threads)...

'36 Cadillac, '34 Lincoln, & '50 Packard (looks earlier but may have been built in '50):



'50 Packard, '55 Buick, & '47(?) Buick:



'50 Packard, '56 Buick, & '55 Buick:



'60 Cadillac x2, '58 Buick, '56 Buick, & '55 Buick (friggin' love this shot):



Owning a '60 Smit-Joure Fleetwood base ambulance one day may have become my new holy grail.



'65 Cadillac by Visser:

Here's the Chapel Hill Mortuary capture again with '60 Superior Pontiac ambulance in front of '57 Superior Cadillac combination.



Gotta hate traffic - even in a small town. Too much for me to Photoshop out.



Other fun fleet shots saved:





Love this shot which was saved from this forum. Search didn't turn originating thread up, so please claim if yours.



I predict that Terry & Kerry Lange will have awesome submissions in this thread!

What's that? You want looser 'fleet' interpretations as captured by my askew view around the country? Covered.

Very cool Steve, and thanks again. These cars are not as abundant in our area, so it's great to see photos of their existence. Please keep them coming.
