I am changing the format of the listing of these ambulances to show the original owner of the vehicle. After that will be who owned it in succession. If you can help fill in the missing information or correct any of the information below, please post to this thread only and it will be reviewed and updated. If you have pictures of one of these cars, please post them along with all the information that you have for that car. Since almost all of these cars were built differently from each other, even an unidentified picture will be a big help, because someone else might know more about it. As I have time and more information I will start a separate thread for each one of the 30 cars along with all the pictures of the car as it traveled through its ownerships whenever possible. I have a feeling that many of the owners' names as listed below might not be correct for the car that they own. A picture of the Superior Coach data plate that is riveted to the front left inner panel will help to ID your car in this database. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
