Looks to be a very good project car. Typical "Rust Belt" lower "swelling" issues with all side doors, fenders, etc. Looks to have had the hood swapped out with one from a '76 deVille d'Elegance. Interesting use of an Eldorado floor mat! I hope that a PCS member is able to get this one bought and properly restore it!

Default Update

Paul and Fred were correct concerning the vehicle heritage. One of my tasks when I was teaching at the Police and Fire Academy was to care for the Cadillac and other ambulances we used.

After we hauled the ambulance two towns over, we spent the summer repairing the front floor, installing new carpet, and having the seats re-done. We recovered the dash and replaced the light bar with a Twinsonic from my stock. We remove the Twinsonic before we back the rig into the garage. The plywood floor near the rear door was replaced with new wood.

We chased the worst of the external rust and primed those areas.

Although the rig will no longer transport patients, most of the interior has been restored and we have oxygen, suction and enough supplies to hold the fort until a current ambulance arrives.

I agree with Fred, this ambulance is now in capable hands. We have had the pleasure of meeting Steve and his lovely bride Helen at two different local shows this year. Not only are they improving this ambulance in leaps and bounds, they are getting lots of interest from spectators and from what I can see, they are loving it.

Welcome aboard Steve and Helen, it is a pleasure to have you both amongst us!

My 1969 was put into service when a neighbor needed to be transported to the hospital after he messed up his meds, became disorientated, and went outside in the middle of the night, and got lost in the woods. When he was found, the caretaker felt that waiting for the town ambulance would take too long. Since the hospital was only 2 miles away, he called me to transport. Response time in town is any where between 15 - 30 minutes. In high priority cases, they call for mutual aid from the next town in the next state.
