Here's a '58 Chevy Amblewagon. Standard equipment shown includes a #54-L stretcher, #11 auxiliary cot, snap-in vinyl floor covering, #17-D beacon, and a vertically-mounted #28 siren behind the grille. Options seen in the rear view include wheelhouse cabinets and side-hinged door conversion. This car also appears to have red parking light lenses.

Default Here's the photos I have.

Here are some British Columbia station wagons.

#2 - 1966 Plymouth ACC conversion? - Beaver Valley, BC (Trail)

#3 - 1967 Pontiac - unknown builder - probably one of the worst uses of a wood-grain sided vehicle - Prince Geroge, BC

#4 - 1970 Chevrolet Brookswood - unknown builder - Nakusp, BC

$5 - same 1970 Chev.

You'd hope they didn't have too many patients that were hypochondriacs. One would think that subject may never arise with a sick or injured victim.. Maybe their mind is elsewhere.. But you take someone that is already in an uncomfortable predicament and push the envelope a little, and now you have an uncooperative patient.

BOSTIC,NC, Authorities in North Carolina are looking into whether to extradite a man from Oklahoma for charges connected in an apparent Kodak overdose. Oklahoma resident Steve Loftin is facing charges after apparently giving Bostic Funeral Director Kent Dorsey access to the harmful substance. Dorsey said he was capable of handling the mind numbing substance known as Kodak but his hands were shaking shortly after viewing the Mopar thread. Residents had not seen Dorsey for days, and he was apparently neglecting his business duties when locals caught him pouring over a thread dealing with station wagon ambulances. When forced from his computer, the poor undertaker was heard shouting, "No! no, I need ONE MORE Vista Cruiser! I can take it... and I can stop anytime I want too..." Loftin apparently sent several enthusiasts into overload as he dealt his Kodak supply out over a week period. Much too quick for many to absorb and deal with without proper treatment. Stay tuned for more information on this harmful condition and pending charges.

Surely, there must be a few current and former undertakers (and stretcher jockeys) on this site that have some photos to share in these threads, as well...?

Most of the folks here know about this car, but I'll post some info for those who might have missed it in the last 25 years at PCS meets:

1955 Studebaker Ambulet originally in service in Erwinna PA until I bought it in 1972 at the tender age of 18. Posed as most people remember the car.
