1960 Cadillac Superior HighTop Rescuer
I purchased this extremely rare ambulance in December 2017. I first found out about the ambulance back in 2014, but only heard that she was out there. After keeping in touch with the owner for over 3 years, he was finally ready to sell and I went to Santa Barbara to see and buy her immediately.
She was in rough condition with lots of rust, and in danger of being trapped by trees growing around her. The engine, transmission, driveshaft and hood were missing, but she was fairly intact otherwise, especially the unique ambulance trim and parts.
The front fenders and bumper were barely hanging on, and were not bolted down. They were removed for transport 300 miles back home. Once we got home, I installed a correct 1960 engine/trans from a donor car, reinstalled the front sheet metal, and purchased a correct driveshaft.
Unfortunately, I always have numerous projects going on at the same time. As of September 2018, the ambulance is currently in storage, waiting for time and money...
