Default My 1967 Superior Cadillac Ambulance

Just listed my 1967 Superior on Craigslist.

http://worcester.craigslist.org/cto/1968213276.html

I love this car but I need a new project and I only have a 3-bay garage, so I decided to keep my oldest (1966 combination) and my newest (1972 ambulance). I'll come down a little in price to keep it in the PCS family.

Jim - Your ad states that the car was in service in Sacramento. Do you know which company owned it? From memory, the services that operated the area were Sacramento Ambulance, Superior Ambulance, Metropolitan Ambulance, Capitol Ambulance, Foothill Ambulance and Professional Ambulance.

It spent it's entire career at Kaiser Steel bringing injured workers to the hospital. The roof signs still read "KAISER". Attached is an original photo of the car at work. I replaced the CA lenses with bullet lenses.

Default 67 cad

Yep. it was a Piner's Ambulance originally, located in Napa, Ca. I did use it a few times on runs there. Piner's sold it to Kaiser in Napa back in the early 70's. some guy had it in storage and told my friend John Morris about it in Sac. He bought it and put a bunch of bucks into it but it never looked right. I Had some pic's of it and agave to him, which is the pic you see against the fence. I have some others I took of it in my collection. The calif casings were missing parts so unable to attach sealed beams to them. lookd good with the bullets and Q. worth all the money now. GOOD JOB

I had the pleasure of seeing this and Jim's other cars last month. I think it is a beautiful car and it would make someone very happy. BTW the garage is pretty sweet also!

Kent: I was guessing that the mountains shown behind the fenced yard was Kaiser Steel's "Eagle Mountain Mine" Facility East of Indio on I-10..... wrong again! THX-MM
