Did all 63 pro cars have the license plate in the middle of the back door, or was that just a Superior feature? It seems like most years, the rear license plate was part of the rear bumper.

These are the only coachbuilders Ive ever seen with the plate in the door in 1963. In 64 (which is the same body), the plate was moved to the bumper.

Default Blue and white color

Blue and white was used by Shepard Ambulance in Seattle so this very likely one of their's.

AMR bought out Shepard in 1995.

The fiberglass is in very good condition and coach has clear paperwork.
The patient compartment needs total restoration with some water damage to cabinets etc.however its all intact.
Also says that he will be removing the motor shortly and then will list on E-
Bay after removal.
He advised me the price is FIRM at $6000 and would not consider an offer...
The only "deal" he would be up for, is for me to buy it now while the motor was still in it because after he removes it, the coach will still be $6000.

I asked for more pictures...but who knows.....

That's a shame that he seems to have bought the vehicle only for it's motor.

$6000 is way too much for that car in it's current shape and when the motor is gone much, much less.

Default Update

Had contact with seller again today regarding the 63.

He now is unsure if he wants to sell it for $6000.00.

His reason is that over the last 2 days he has been overwhelmed with "interest from all over the world"...

He says that he is considering putting it up for auction,(besides E-Bay !! ??"

I guess the profit he is making from washing it off and trailering it home is not sufficient at 4k.......

He also advised that 3 of the 4 doors glass is cracked,but rear door is good as is windshield.
The bumpers need work/chrome.

So little by little I get info,but still waiting on a few more pictures of the underside.....

Somehow I think this ambulance is going to be popping up for quite some time.....
