This car is a unique opportunity to own a 1941 for not a pile of money, I would imagine.

Default Interior

The front flashers are interesting, as is the single rear STOP flasher. Makes me think of it as an ambulance. The black door jams and interior cloth makes me think combination. Not sure and not clear what was taken out of the back.

I would so so. Rollers gone and new floor put in the hatch cut threw the sill was a different way to hack it up. Nothing but smooth sides from the divider back. It would be a vary good canadate to put back to what it was.

I have to disagree on putting it back to what it was originally. This one will always be worth more(to most people) as an ambulance, even if it was originally a hearse or combo. Not enough pizzazz with this one as a hearse. I would imagine that this coach spent the majority of its "working life" as an ambulance and that history has a lot of value, regardless of what it was originally built to be.

but if all that is left of the ambulance is the lights out side have you saved? granted the east would have been a tossing one and the gurney could have been any thing for a stretcher to one of the road flats. but looking at the interior shots here is nothing inside except the trap door that says ambulance.
