HEARSE / AMBULANCE COMBINATION COACH WITH REMOVABLE
LANDUA PANELS HAVING DRIVEN ONLY 84,000 MILES SINCE
THIS COACH WAS RECENTLY TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE AFTER CURRENT SELLER PURCHASED FROM 2ND OWNER WHICH WAS A FUNERAL HOME IN NORTH GEORGIA THAT ONLY USES CLASSIC COACHES IN THEIR SERVICE FLEET.
THIS BEAUTIFUL AND STUNNING EXAMPLE OF A SUPERIOR COMBINATION COACH RUNS AND DRIVES BEAUTIFULLY AT HIGHWAY SPEEDS. THE COACH FEATURES THE VERSATILE AND EASILY REMOVED LANDUA PANELS TO SWITCH BACK AND FORTH FROM A CLASSIC AND ELEGANT LANDAU PANEL HEARSE APPEARANCE TO THE SLEEK AND ATTRACTIVE LIMOUSINE WINDOW STYLE FOR AMBULANCE SERVICE OR MAY BE USED TO HAVE FULL VIEW OF THE CASKET.
AFTER PURCHASING THE COACH THE CURRENT OWNER HAS HAD THE CAR SERVICED. THIS COACH COULD BE PUT BACK INTO SERVICE AND USED WITH PRIDE.
THE DEMOUNTABLE FOUR BULB BEACON RAY HAS BEEN REFURBISHED BY A WELL KNOWN LIGHT DEALER. THE BEACON RAY FEATURES THE DEMOUNTABLE BASE THAT CAN BE QUICKLY INSTALLED/DEMOUNTED FOR AMBULANCE SERVICE.
THE PICTURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES CONCERNING THE QUALITY AND CONDITION OF THIS COACH.
THE COACH WAS USED BY AN ATLANTA GEORGIA FIRM UNTIL IT WAS TRADED IN DURING THE MID 70'S AND THEN PURCHASED BY THE 2ND FUNERAL HOME WHO USED IT UNTIL 2012.
THE COACH FEATURES COLD A/C. THE ORIGINAL REAR HEATER LINES WERE DISCONNECTED YEARS AGO BY PREVIOUS OWNER BUT ALL CONNECTIONS ARE STILL THERE AND CAN BE RECONNECTED.
SO LET'S ANSWER THE KEY QUESTION - "WHY AM I SELLING IT?" SIMPLE ANSWER 22 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER'S BOYFRIEND MET ME FOR LUNCH AND ASKED "MAY I HAVE YOUR BLESSING TO MARRY YOUR DAUGHTER?" AFTER AN INTERROGATION THE ANSWER WAS "YES".
GET THE PICTURE??
I AM NOT A DEALER. I AM AN AVID CADILLAC/LINCOLN COLLECTOR THAT NOW HAS TO LET GO OF THREE CARS - 1977 LINCOLN TOWN CAR, 1988 MERCEDES 420 SEL AND YES, THIS BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING COACH - AMBULANCE TO PAY FOR A WEDDING. I'D RATHER KEEP THE WIFE AND DAUGHTER HAPPY THAN KEEP THE CARS!!
MY INTENTIONS WERE TO FIT THE COACH WITH A FEDERAL PA 20 SIREN AND REMOVABLE REAR WINDOW AMBULANCE SIGNS BUT BASED ON THE WIFE AND DAUGHTER'S WEDDING PLANNING ITS JUST NOT GONNA HAPPEN FOR ME.
THEREFORE.....THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A RARE AND DESIRABLE PIECE OF FUNERAL HOME ERA HISTORY. AS YOU ARE PROBABLY AWARE THIS COACH WOULD HAVE BEEN USED AS AN AMBULANCE BEFORE THE DAYS OF MODERN EMS UNITS AND WOULD OFTEN BE SEEN BLAZING THROUGH TRAFFIC IN TOWNS ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA.
THE REASON THIS CAR CAUGHT MY ATTENTION IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT IN APRIL OF 1973 AT THE AGE OF TEN I WATCHED MY GRANDFATHER BE LOADED INTO A COMBINATION AMBULANCE EXACTLY LIKE THIS ONE WHILE HAVING A HEART ATTACK. ONE OF THOSE EXPERIENCES YOU NEVER FORGET!!!
THE COACH IS SOLD AS/IS WHERE IS WITH NO WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. PAYMENT MUST BE MADE WITHIN SEVEN DAYS OF END OF AUCTION. THOSE EBAYERS WITH NO OR NEGATIVE HISTORY PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THIS COACH WITHOUT CONTACTING OWNER FIRST. THIS IS A LEGITIMATE LEGALLY BINDING AUCTION AND PLEASE DO NOT BID UNLESS YOU ARE ABLE AND PREPARED TO PAY THE PRICE YOU BID. THERE ARE NO TEST DRIVES ETC AFTER AUCTION ENDS. THE COACH IS IN MCDONOUGH, GEORGIA 25 MILES SOUTH OF ATLANTA HARTSFIELD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. IT WAS RECENTLY DRIVEN 250 MILES WITH NO PROBLEMS. FLY IN AND DRIVE HER HOME
AS YOU CAN TELL FROM MY EBAY FEEDBACK HISTORY I'VE NEVER HAD ANYTHING BUT GOOD EXPERIENCES ON EBAY AND WOULD LIKE TO KEEP IT THAT WAY. THE "BUY IT NOW" OPTION IS JUST THAT - THE OPPORTUNITY TO BUY IT NOW. ONCE THE RESERVE IS MET THE BUY IT NOW OPTION GOES AWAY AND THE FINAL BIDDER OWNS THE COACH. TRANSPORTATION EXPENSE AND ALL DETAILS CONCERNING SAID ARE TO BE BORNE BUY THE PURCHASER.

It's been about eight months since we last heard anything on the eagerly anticipated Cadillac ATS-V, meaning it was high time a new batch of photos arrived of the twin-turbocharged, V6-powered sedan.
Mon, 12 May 2014 13:29:00 EST
This latest round includes a shot of the hot ATS-V alongside the upcoming CTS-V, allowing us to glimpse through the camouflage and spot the family resemblance between the two über sedans. According to our spies, this is the first time we've gotten a look at the ATS-V's fascia without a nose bra to obscure larger details. This isn't the first time we've seen a vertically slated grille on an in-development Cadillac V car, although it is the first time we've seen it on the ATS-V. Aside from the main grille, the shapes of the sportier front fascia of the ATS-V tie in nicely with its big brother. We are rather curious about the hood on the ATS-V. It's difficult to tell from these images, but it looks like there may be some vents up there that may be meant to improve cooling to the alleged 425-horsepower engine.
Other details that we can see include swollen fenders and larger wheels that hide amplified brakes. The rear of the car remains heavily obscured by camo, with the sole details of note being the quad exhausts, which we've spotted on previous ATS-V prototypes.
Could it be? Could Cadillac be working on an even higher-end version of its ELR plug-in hybrid? Well, General Motors' Executive Vice President Mark Reuss has gone on record as... well, not saying much. The exec was more than a bit coy on video (which you can view below) when asked about the idea of an ELR-V, although he did say that Cadillac was looking at "expanding the tuning envelope" for its plug-in coupe. What that means could be hinted at in these spy photos.

Cadillac is certainly up to something with this little red ELR. As is often the case, it's the car's enhanced brakes that give it away. Bigger binders are a telltale sign of sportier aspirations, and it's safe to say that rule applies with the ELR. The larger rotors and four-piston Brembo calipers are sourced from the Buick Regal GS, which we imagine would be plenty to bring the high-priced hybrid to a halt.
Obscuring those rotors and calipers are larger, double-armed five-spoke wheels. And, according to our spies, hiding behind that camouflage is a new grille. Outside of those two items, though, there's not much aesthetic change.
You don't have to be German to test your car at the Nürburging. You just have to be serious about beating the Germans on their own home turf. That's why Nissan tests its GT-R at the Nordschleife to challenge the Porsche 911, and why Cadillac - which is no less serious about putting up a fight to German performance sedans - has returned to the 'Ring once again with its latest.
This time it's the turn of the new CTS Vsport, the sportier version of Cadillac's new mid-range sedan that aims to bridge the gap until the arrival of the next CTS-V. So how'd it fare? At the end of what we're sure was an exhaustive test session, the new CTS Vsport clocked a time of 8:14.10.
To put that into context, General Motors points out that the time places the new sedan six seconds ahead of the first-gen CTS-V, whose 400-horsepower V8 engine was actually less potent than the Vsport's new 410hp 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6. That's still a good fifteen seconds slower than the outgoing CTS-V that clocked a 7:59 in 2009 with its 556hp supercharged V8, but only a second behind the E60-generation BMW M5 with its high-revving 500hp V10.
