Summary

Summary

This comprehensive overview traces the ascendance and demise of the car-based ambulance in the United States. The emphasis is on ambulances built around luxury car chassis by classic marques such as Cadillac, Packard, Buick and LaSalle, and on custom coachwork by such names as Superior, Miller-Meteor and Henney. Photographs detail once-common features like raised roofs, two-tone paint, chromed sirens, and myriad flashing lights. All of the interior and exterior shots are factory photos, many depicting these fabulous vehicles in action at accident scenes.
