Interesting car, if for no other reason than station wagon ambulances were so common in this part of the country. How did you luck into this picture?

I found the same photo a couple of years ago along with several others and some very interesting background information by visiting this site http://www.flickr.com/people/drmo/

Please keep in mind that when you see pictures on the Internet that they are intellectual property and belong to others. I have had some complaints from members on these forums that some of the pictures being posted belong to them, and that they feel that if the picture is to be posted, they should be the one posting it. I realize that almost everyone has taken pictures off of the web, and have posted them, but please don't get upset when the picture is removed as a result of a complaint. thanks Paul

Jim Green F.H. (Pryor, OK)
1971 SEC/Mercury

Safety Equipment Co. of Eldorado, KS was operated by Bob Dietz. Medical and ambulance supplies were sold, and ambulances were built on van
and Suburban as well as station wagon chassis. Their hightop wagon job was called a Medic Jr. and featured a full interior conversion. This particular car had a 400 engine and was like driving a JET (spelled f-a-s-t)! She was built for Enid (OK) Ambulance Service, who traded it in 1975 for a used Pontiac hightops. Jim Green then bought it for use at his Salina, OK facility. It was later sold to Village Ambulance Service in Cherryvale, KS.

Default Mercury Meteor

Meteor was the Canadian version of the Mercury for many years. This '64 station wagon conversion was done by a local body shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba for Irish Ambulance. Originally it was painted a beige color with contrasting bright green lettering. It was later acquired by Halliday's Ambulance in Swan River, Manitoba as pictured here.

While the 1960 Siebert hightop ambulance conversion was somewhat attractive, the hearse version was not. Later, Siebert offered a full-length contoured roof cap for their hearse and combination cars. It had lower headroom and fit the lines of the cars (through the 1964 model year) much better.
