I just realized that these two pictures are of the same car.. Now, when you wonder what happened to a particular car, sometimes the pictures here paste together the whole story....

Read my post 52 for more story of this car, and here is some pics I took of it in the garage in Riverside, and a couple off Ebay.

One more off ebay. Paul, the pic you have with it by the green wagon, that owner sold it to his buddy, which had it in the garage in Riverside (where I took the pics). His buddy pulled it out, took pics and put it on ebay. It is currently owned by a ambulance company in Iowa City, and it should be undergoing restoration right now.

Default 1966 National Ford Ranch Wagon Ambulance

The Ford was owned initially by the Amoco Chemical Corp. and was then purchased by the Dundee Cement Company in Clarksville, Missouri in 1968. There it remained, acquiring under 9k miles in service as the cement plant's emergency vehicle until I bought it in Sept. of 2003. The plant, then owned by Holcim, was closed in 2009. The car still has under 10k miles.
I have some additional pics from 2003 in my picturetrail album:

I've seen pix of your Ford before, but couldn't remember who built it. Wasn't it a National? Nice shot of the late-Lloyd and Karen Rays' blue C/B Chevy ambulance next to your Ford. Where was this pic taken?

Answers to your questions:
1) National
2) It's Paul Steinberg's blue C/B Chevy now
3) Albany, at the International Meet

Thanks, Steve. Didn't know that Paul had acquired the car. Any idea where the Rays' other C/B Chevy went? When was the Albany meet? Had to be before my time with PCS.
