Okay, back to the station wagons...

Here's a 1961 Pontiac Amblewagon brochure:

They were available only on FoMoCo products for the first few years. Job 1 was the Ford seen in Post #11, followed quickly by this Mercury, and then Edsel in 1958:

I haven't ever seen a '75, but this was a '74 Buick that appeared for sale a few years ago. From what I remember, it had been stripped back down to its basic station wagon configuration. The Amblewagon scripts were still on the body, being the only real indication of what the car was. I'm guessing many Amblewagon conversions suffered that same fate.

This must have been the lesser fate- any single 1970s GM wagon would have been derbied by the inbred knockholes in this area a while ago. Unfortunately, people in western PA aren't big on much except scrap and derbys. We have lost thousands of great cars around here. Wagons like this have no chance. I'd assume that the 1973 white straight clean car in that picture was derbied by ignorant ****oles.

I know what you mean, Iowa is the same way. At least most places now ban hearses from seeing this fate.

Note the 8-lug aluminum wheels...I wonder if she had a 389 or 421 HO Tri-Power?:

It's a Seibert, and (no offense to Bill), since this is not a station wagon and this is the station wagon ambulance thread, could we impose upon Paul to move this post with a great photo over to the Ford ambulance thread?

Cleveland Police ran station wagon ambulances in the early 70's and also were used as regular "cruisers". There were lime yellow and used until the city started the EMS.

Well, technically, it's not a station wagon. However, like many of these conversions, it began life as a station wagon. In this case, a Ford. It just had the chassis extended as well as the roof raised.
