My 67 M-M Duplex Combination that I bought from Dwayne, and my 81 S&S Victoria with Eureka trim package that I use to own that I just tried to buy back, but they love it to much and won't sell it back to me. I don't blame them, I should have never sold it any way.

1965 Pinner/Cadillac Combination

This has to be the most unattractive Cadillac, if not procar in general, that I've ever seen. It's also the only Cadillac I know of to have been built on an OWB passenger car chassis. Tom, what firm was this car built for?

(factory photos)

Steve, a funeral home in New Albany, MS furnished 2 Cadillacs that were bought at there local dealer. This is how they wanted them built.

M-M with Superior on the side

I realize this is juvenile but I can't help but chuckle over the irony of a Miller-Meteor with "Superior" on the doors.

The 71 Lifeliner from A-1 in Visalia is now owned by Jim Crabtree. Shortly after they (A-1 Visalia) acquired it all the warning equipment was removed because someone thought a Code 3 2200 lightbar with a PA-20 would be an improvement! The 2200 died and lays in a pile somewhere in my backyard, replaced by a Model 12 TwinSonic. The underside of the roof still shows where the holes were for the Super Chief and 184's.:pat:

HI Kevin that Vehicle is Owned By Superior Ambulance of Elmhurst ILL.
They have Offices in Illinois. Indiana and Metro Detroit.
The Driver of this pro car is a Member of the Motorcity Chapter & PCS

Here are some S&S ambulances from 1966, 1965, and 1946. The oldest ambulance I ever ran calls out of was a '65 Parkway like the one shown here. Who knows...it might be the same car!

Some cars are especially beautiful and photographed well. I think this is one of 'em. This is a factory photo showing a new 1967 Superior Cadillac Crown Royale ambulance. I can just imagine this car finished in a pretty shade of blue or gold.

The 1975 S&S was my first professional car. I purchased it from Hackettstown First Aid and Rescue Squad in September of 1987. It's replacement is due to be replaced in Febraury 2011. The 1976 S&S is reputed to be the next to last ambulance built by S&S. It was replaced in May of 1994.

More Eurekas...

...scanned from the 1964 brochure. This was the last year Eurekas were built. Both coaches in this set are combinations, as indicated by the fresh air intake at the head of the rear fender fin (just under the "C" pillar).
