This has been posted on ebay several times with starting bid at $4,000 and " Buy it now" at $8,000. I like the rig but not that much.

Lights and crosses look like Superior? Did they do conversions on Suburbans?

Not that I am aware of especially in the 70s. They produced a standard Ford van conversion as their only deviation from the Cadillac and Pontiac based ambulances until 1972 - 73 when they came out with the wide body vans.

It looks like a Superior, but I don't think it is. I dug out the Superior book and it never mentions a Suburban based ambulance.

Maybe we shouldn't talk about it being rare until one of us buys it...

The lights look like they are from an early sixties Superior. Anybody could have taken them off a junked rig and re-used them.
