Steve,
The rig was retired in the early 80's by the town of Naturita in Colorado.....

The gentleman that bought it from the town was the fire chief .

Upon his retirement he wanted to use it in service as a "first aid" vehicle at a number of mines that he owned......but with the decline of mining in the 90's he just put it in storage........

Fast forward to October 2012...he decieded to sell it now that he is also retired from any mining activities.....

The vehicle runs.drives and is in pretty decent shape......it is stocked as the day they took it out of service (he wanted the medical items to stay in tact when he purchased it)..........

His asking price is/WAS $4000.00......

Jim

Looking at the last picture of the car's interior, i notices that the overhead cabinet has a control panel on the right side below the radio equipment.

This is the first time that I have noticed that. Usually they are either on the passenger side by the forward facing attendant seat (on the Pontiac's that I have seen) on on a separate box on the driver side by the head of the stretcher.

Is this a common place for that control panel?

The interior is interesting you're right, what are these red pads for? (On the top compartment?)

The red pads are there because there is an attendant's seat at the head-end of the stretcher. There appears to be a tool box sitting on that seat now. That was an optional location for the seat, probably not too common in '70 (but by '75, it was quite common). The pads are to protect the attendant's head from the overhead cabinet.

(When the rear-facing attendant's seat is on the passenger side, it sits lower and the regular cabinet does not extend over the seat, so no head pad was needed.)

As for the control panel, I've not seen that, but I'd have to check a Superior brochure to see if this was available, or a special request.

Slightly more unusual is the roll-up cabient doors - common in a M-M, pretty unusual in a Superior.
