Okay, you all knew I'd have to use that phrase sooner or later!

SPECTACULAR spec.tac.u.lar (def.): 1. Of the nature of a spectacle; sensational. 2. This 1959 Memphis/Chrysler ambulance from Haworth, NJ.

This lovely Memphian deserves a post of its own.

This beautiful '59 National Dodge is from Jamieson Funeral Home in Glenboro, Manitoba. I shot these photos at a Northland Chapter meet many years ago. It is originally from Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

I don't know either, but since the beams are perfectly aligned in each one I would assume they are flashers, not rotaters. Unless of course the photog was as anal as you Mr. Loftin when it comes to things being perfect. :)

Good eye, my friend; I thought the same. Sireno, Dietz, and others used to make flashing beacons, but I don't recognize these.

Thanks for the compliment (I think)! It's no science...vehicle photography is like painting a car: The more prep work you do, the better it turns out.

Beautiful is right; I've always admired this car. Does Moray Jamieson still have his procar collection?

Here's a link to his funeral home's website. Go to "About Us," then "Ambulance Service:"

66 Chrysler Ambulance

This interesting conversion was done by a local autobody shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba on a '66 Chrysler wagon, for Riverview Ambulance Service. All of the big 3 auto makers were represented in this conversion. The tunnel lights are tail lights from a '62 Mercury Monterey, the tail lights are from a '59 Buick, and the rear door (allegedly) is from a '54 Ford Sedan Delivery.

I'll guess. it has to be a seabert with the rear doors configured that way. they were about the only ones flipping the doors and hinging them back wards.
