This is located in Northern New Jersey, in Bergen County. I would guess by the lettering on the side of the vehicle, it was donated to the training academy, and when they were finished with it, they returned it to the squad in Franklin Lakes Borough, NJ.

Nice car that looks to be all there. Last of the big ones. I would like to own it but it would also require a divorce. Great project for some one.

Up to $5000 now. Very well equipped in the rear! I see that it has a Federal Interceptor, but the speakers must have been removed. Someone must have liked pounding on the dash as these black dashes usually held up pretty good, even when stored outdoors.

It was donated to the Bergen County Police and Fire Academy in Mahwah when Franklin Lakes Volunteer Ambulance Corps retired it and was housed in side at the Academy until probably late last year.

It has a very interesting left sided upper cabinet, which, I'm not sure is a factory option.

Based on the VIN# it appears to be an early 1976

Thanks Fred... to me that particular lightbar looks out of place on it, maybe a Twinsonic or 184 light more appropriate...

Wow! That steering wheel is impressive! Must have always lived inside. That alone is about an $800 item in that condition!

Are any of the cabinets original to the car? The Formica pattern & color does not look like anything that I have seen in a Superior Cadillac ambulance of that vintage.

Given that New Jersey squads were very particular in their specific needs, I can see where they might have specified exactly what they wanted in cabinetry, and that it wouldn't be the normal offering by the coach builder. The coach builders would custom build anything that you wanted, as long as it was humanly possible. When this car was built, the box ambulances were already in existence, and the cabinetry in this ambulance is very similar to what was being offered in the box ambulances. I remember that our 1970 PL custom built box ambulance had the clear Plexiglas sliding doors on the cabinets, so it isn't much of a stretch to see this on a custom built Superior.
