This is another photo from the Poe school bombing (courtesy of the Houston Metropolitan Research Center) posted by Bruce (9/14)
Clone or not, it still has "the look":
to post pictures here you must be a site supporter. it's the only way we fund the site. to me the best buy for 25 bucks you can do.
I think there probably is a LOT of interest in seeing it preserved. We are quite pleased you saved it from the crusher. As the owner myself of a full wagon ambulance and another wagon-with-a-flat-cot, I'd love to see it.I don't have a problem with donating $25. The fact that I found this picture is well worth it. However, I get the feeling from the OP, that there may not be a lot of interest in seeing the former ambulance as it was in '94 and is now. The history of this car is important, but the fact that I saved it from the crusher is even more relevant.
Oh, so you're not restoring it as the ambulance it originally was? I misunderstood. Not knocking you, I could have done that with my wagon ambulances but restored them as they were originally. The thing about restoring it as an ambulance, it'd be the "only one on the block".
These have such history (the guy in the pic of my restored Studebaker Ambulet was the first ambulance driver in the town ambulance service 55 years earlier, with his grandson in the back and me driving in the town 4th of July parade in Minnesota).
Anyway, you still have a nice station wagon.
one of the reasons they are so few examples of wagon conversions is that they all went back to wagons when there duty was finished. you have a nice wagon there. did you take any pictures of the inside before you started? be interesting to see how they did that added floor. most were a cot bar added to the existing floor and the small split seat folded up.
