The note about the car not being manufactured in the USA has me a little confused. Perhaps our Canadian members can shine a light on that.

This a standard note made by outfits taking bids where the car may go o a foreign country. VIN numbers have become standardized. VINs first digit show the country manufactured EG, 1=USA,2=Canada 3=Mexico and so on. Our venerable Crown Vics although The cop car of the USA were all made in Canada VINs all start with two. Since some of GOV DEALS item are black market seizure cars this warning goes on any listing where the VIN is not coded to modern specs a 55 Ford would cause the computer to make the same diclaimer.

The '76 definitely looks to be the more solid of the 2 cars. Both look to have been originally gold w/ black vinyl roofs. That interior in the '76 is my favorite interior material used in Victorias. I will never understand how/why people get landau bars turned around!

Thanks for clearing that up Peter. I was just going to ask how the gov would be selling hearses.

Doing a little more detective work the listing shows the seller to be Cambrian College of Applied Arts and Technology, ON . I bought a nice Coach from a Community College locally a few years ago the had a Mortuary School and used it to bring cadavers from the Philadelphia Coroners Office. When I asked "Why are you selling it?" answer "we got a van so now we can bring in seven instead of two we save money on gas and time". Perhaps the same is true here.

I don't think any mortuary science school would use a hearse that someone had taken a rattle can to. I would say that both of these were seized vehicles.

Perusing Cambrian College programs, I didn't immediately see anything that would call for hearse use. One thing to consider when someone like a college ends up with some vehicles like this is the possibility of a gift in kind.
I look at Govdeals a lot for fun, and recently there was an early 90's Ford rescue/utility body that showed up for our county on govdeals. I didn't remember it ever being in service here and the striping was not consistent with any markings here, I asked a paramedic crew chief who said, "that truck was donated to the county by an individual... it was sent to the solid waste department, where recently it developed transmission problems, and the county decided to cut it loose...".
The most interesting vehicle I have seen on govdeals lately was a 1976 Chevrolet Suburban, green and white and had a description of it being in great shape. It was in California, and was listed under the Classic Cars area. I am a little more drawn to putting in some zip codes in location search and seeing what turns up. It is interesting in that every now and then a county or city is getting rid of some 1970's era rarely used utility vehicle.

Another possibility is they were both abandoned on the campus. Here in Pa. the Police would be called and they would be towed to the impound lot in that situation and then the Police would handle the disposal. Perhaps its done different in Canada.

They may have been donated to the Industrial Arts programs ie. mechanics, etc. at some point.

Two bidders on this one

Hopefully someone with the PCS got one or both of them.
