MAGNIFICENT 1972 CADILLAC COMMERCIAL CHASSIS SUPERIOR
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.
PLEASE NOTE: THE BLACK CADILLAC MATS THAT ARE IN FRONT COMPARTMENT PHOTOS DO NOT GO WITH THE COACH. THEY ARE FOR ANOTHER CAR I OWN.

Cadillacs are built at plants across North America. The Escalade is assembled in Texas, the SRX in Mexico and the XTS in Ontario. But the bulk of Cadillac's lineup - or the smaller members of the family, at least - are built in Michigan. And while the upcoming ELR will be built alongside the Chevy Volt at the Detroit/Hamtramck facility (which incidentally opened with the Cadillac Eldorado back in '86), the majority of those Cadillacs built in Michigan are handled by the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant.

In fact, Lansing Grand River just celebrated its millionth Cadillac built. The landmark millionth vehicle is a new 2014 CTS sedan in Red Obsession Tintcoat. The facility opened in 2001 and has built Cadillacs almost exclusively since then, assembling the CTS and ATS model lines, though in a couple of years it will also handle production of the Chevy Camaro.
One of the biggest debuts at the Monterey car week, both literally and figuratively, was the Cadillac Elmiraj Concept. The massive coupe made quite a splash with the show's well-heeled guests. Now, we have what might be the very first images of the Elmiraj, or whatever it may be called when it reaches production, out testing.

Don't let that modified Chevrolet Caprice body fool you, this car is about four to six inches longer than Chevy's US-spec cop car, from the A-pillar forward. According to our spy, with the Caprice at 203 inches and the concept at 205, adding a few extra inches here and there fits the bill for the four-door Elmiraj that was hinted at in Jay Leno's Garage.
There are a number of other classic mule signs on this car, including a cover over the fuel door and heavily modified front and rear fascias, each of which serves to hide some significant change from the standard Caprice. Using a Caprice for development also, hopefully, hints at something that big Cadillacs like the XTS have lacked - rear-wheel drive.
While Jerry Seinfeld was gallivanting around LA with Sarah Silverman in a Jaguar XKE, our favorite car-loving comedian, Jay Leno, was checking out the all-new 2014 Cadillac ELR. Set to go on sale later this year, Cadillac brought its ELR to Jay Leno's Garage to show off some of its styling and technology as well as give Leno some seat time in the range-extended EV. Leno owns both a Volt and a CTS-V, and the ELR is a kind combination of the two (sort of).
In this episode, Leno spends some time talking to Frank Saucedo, GM director of advanced design, and ELR chief engineer Chris Thomason before logging a few miles on the sleek coupe. Interestingly, it seems that GM has definitely changed its tune a little since the introduction of the Volt a couple years ago; Saucedo and Leno both refer to the ELR as a hybrid, and Thomason says that it gets the "bulk of its propulsion" from the electric motors. Whatever you want to call it, scroll down to watch the latest episode of JLG with some great information and driving shots of the plug-in Cadillac.
