I really like that! Looks like a very large undertaking to restore to service-form but all seems to be there. I wish they had more pictures of the patient area. Hopefully this dosent get grabbed and made iredeemable. Thanks for the post!

Blencoe, IA is about an hour north of where I live. I will be back up that way on New Year's Eve day, if anyone is seriously interested in it and would like me to check it out.

For sure an ambulance by the glass. Packard did not have an automatic trans in 1948 came in 1950 AND you can see clutch peddle in the picture. Looks moth eaten but solid.

I believe Steve is correct. The cabinet looks to be home-made.

I should swing by to see if he wants to sell the grilles!!

Local PCS member and friend Miguel, could use parts from that car.
We spent a couple days driving around getting quotes to chrome plate his 48 Packard chrome parts and he is missing a few things as well as a few are badly rusted or broken.

I sent him the link. Maybe he will want to buy the car for the parts he needs.

I will let you know soon.

Thanks for posting this ad.

Darren

This car was sold at a auction in Iowa recently along with another one.

Looks like there were 2 1949 Henney Packard "ambulances" and 1 1949 Henney Packard limo advertised on the auction bill. The auction was in Sept.
