In its present state, they will be EXTREMELY lucky to get 50% of their current asking price. We will be seeing this one for a while.

That louvered hood would go directly to the scrap pile, if it were mine.

I have heard that Beverly Hills used louvered hoods.

Apparently this ambulance was always overheating when at BHFD so the fire department cut these holes in the hood and it solved the problem.

This car was owned by Mark DiGiovanni in NJ. He bought it in Las Vagas. Mark sold it on ebay a number of years ago.

That hood looks even more ridiculous. I would toss that one in the scrap pile as well. They should have just fixed the problem!

Do you know if the rear cabinetry was still in the car when he purchased it in Nevada?
Piecing together the history of this vehicle, I know that Danny Ryder owned it, however, I don't remember if this is the same one that he purchased in New Jersey or not. I remember the original discussion vaguely, however, when I searched the archives of the website, I was unable to find the earlier discussion. It is a matter of picking the correct search words, which usually gives me good results. In this case, I keep drawing a blank in my searches. I have opened up the archives going back to inception in March 2009 to all registered members, so feel free to search on your own for the rest of the history of this ambulance.

Easier said than done; many of these cars had overheating issues, especially when idling at scenes in the summertime.

I've lifted the hood and turned off the A/C many a time when we would be on scene for a while.

Heat was a problem in the mid 70s Catalitic converters were new and few realized the heat they generated. Quite a few Police cars were set on fire by parking over leaves on the side of the road. We bought a couple of interior burned Police cars in this era where fire was started by the heat from converter getting floor so hot the jute padding would ignite. The City of Philadelphia had so many problems with their 1981 Le baron six cylinder cop cars they pulled converters and put "test pipes" in their place. When the EPA caught wind of this a mega buck fine came through and before city could sell the cars new cats had to be put on all. Quite a few Police depts around here pulled the hoods off and sent them out to have louvers stamped in them. I remember plenty of the local Cadillacs sitting at the scene with hoods open and AC off.
