Default 1954 Meteor Ambulance in Kamloops BC

Interesting Ford ambulance, seems in good shape. looks like a sedan/delivery style conversion but the photos make it look pretty long... any BC PCS members out there know the car or its story??

That is Meteor as in Canadian Ford, not to be confused with the Meteor body company of Piqua Ohio. I don't know what the laws of Canada are about exporting historical items, however, if it were a US made Ford that had been sent to Canada, then it could come back to the US with very little difficulty, since that is where it would have originated. If there is no prohibition, then it is a matter of paying for it, getting it licensed, and driving it across the border. Most antiques that are imported to the US can come in duty free, however, it might be best to check with US Customs first.

I like how simple the dash instruments are. None of that cluttered mess that modern cars have.

Default Interesting!

I'll give them a call tomorrow. Haven't heard of this car before at all.

The first that would have to go is the electronic siren speaker.

I spoke with Dennis, the car dealer. He is real nice to talk to, seems like a real gentleman. He said he is selling it for his friend. Dennis told me that the ambulance served Vancouver Island, BC, if I remember correctly. He said the car is in nice condition.

It sure would be a unique ambulance for somebody. Best of all, it fits in a regular size garage!

Default Vancouver Island?

...now I'm even more interested!

Wonder if it was mill or mine ambulance given that there is no front passenger seat. Looks to be a flip up attendant seat though behind the driver's seat.
