I was fooling around in some old converted photo files yesterday afternoon and came across this beauty. It's a 1964 Cadillac Miller-Meteor straight ambulance operated by the Lorain (Ohio) Fire Department as Rescue 21.

A little backstory here. Lorain was the home of a large Ford Assembly Plant for many years. Ford Falcons and Mercury Comets were produced there, followed by the Econoline when they were introduced. Prior to this Cadillac, L.F.D. ran all Ford ambulances and staff cars. The Caddy replaced a '62 Ford Siebert shown in the second photo. The big Ford replaced a '61 Country Sedan that operated as Rescue 23. Ford had an absolute hissy fit when the Caddy was purchased, but no Ford alternatives were available. I believe that they purchased one more Cadillac in '67 or '68, a Miller-Meteor 48" unit. After that, it was back to Fords in the shape Econolines.
