I was looking through some pictures on my computer and saw a 39 Ford ambulance. I knew it came from my friend's site, but that was all. I finally found the picture, it says Hot Rod Power Tour 2010 Chattanooga Tn. Here is the link, 39 Ford ambulance

This conversion of a 1986 Ford Country Squire was done by CRS Coach (McAlester, OK) for a private service in CA. As you can see in the aft view, the inner streetside rear window had cabinetry installed (although it wasn't very deep!).

Where was this taken? Do you know the car's lineage?

I will guess it was taken at the owners house in Kent WA. All I know of the car is that the current owner bought it at an abandoned vehicle auction from a tow company. I believe the car was impounded on Vashon Island . More pictures of it are on the Rain City Hearse Club site www.raincityhearse.org and clicking on "coaches in the club"

The Chicago F.D. ordered a fleet of black over red 1946 Siebert/Mercury ambulances. Original warning lights were red and green Mars 888s as seen here; later, a Mars FL-8 was added to each roof. Here are Units 8, 13, and one with no number on the door:

I photographed this unusual station wagon stretch at Carl Woerner's place in 1990. He later exported it to Mexico. A matching limousine was part of the original order:
