I went to look at this thing the other day. Interior is gutted. Owner got ahead of himself. Wanted to turn it into a mobile party machine. Missing all door panels and everything. Totally killed it for me. Otherwise, it was pretty solid. Few rust holes. Not sure how it runs. They haven't had it started in years. You could tell it was a nice car at one time. Last registered in 2000. Banged on the gas tank and it sounded like it had gravel in it. Also had a cracked windshield. Good solid project for someone with a lot of ambition.

As usual, just enough ambition (and beer) to take it apart, not enough to put it back together...

It was pretty disappointing. Funny thing is that I have scoped out the area really well and this car just came out of nowhere. I have never seen this car and I've been a resident of this city my whole life. Just blew me away. The person that owns it actually called me asking if I was interested. Another local car collector gave them my number. Guy owned it since the mid 90s. Just sat in the garage. You could tell that the guy had bought a parts car to make this thing fancy. Has a 6-way power seat out of a stock cad. Also has telescopic tilt and cruise. The front cab was homemade with a tan light brown fabric. Matching carpet. There was a pile of trim in the back. Not sure whats there and whats not. Wires were dangling out of the dash. Looked like a headache. I would rather patch a 12 inch rust hole than replace an interior especially one with nothing for patterns. I do hope the next owner does something good with it. It is an awesome car!

I would have to do some digging around, but I believe I shot this car back in the late '70's to early '80's somewhere in Montana.

I did find the photos that I took, and it is the same car. I think it was in Bozeman, MT.

If someone was really interested in taking this one on............. I do have much of the original interior trim, floor sections, etc. that I just pulled out of the '74 Superior 54" ambulance that I am currently parting out. I would sell the stuff very inexpensively to someone willing to put this one back together.

Seems these days a Federal Q in any kind of respectable condition is worth at least $500, so that makes the rest of it $4300.

I thought this thing looked vaguely familiar so I went digging into my photos too. Here's a not-so-great photo I took back in the spring of 1986 at John Ringdahl's place in Fergus Falls, MN. He must have taken it in trade from Montana and then sold it to the fellow in Moorhead.
