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.

Following the introduction of the redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, we're expecting General Motors won't wait too much longer to show off the next-generation fullsize SUVs that share this platform - including the Cadillac Escalade. It's still not clear if the next Escalade will debut for the 2014 or 2015 model years, but Carscoops has what it claims to an exclusive first look of the new Cadillac, revealing a portion of the headlight, front fascia and wheel.
Tue, 24 Sep 2013 08:45:00 EST
Judging from this small picture, it looks like the Escalade could incorporate styling cues that we've seen on new Cadillac models like the ELR and the 2014 CTS, but that article says that other design details could include tall, vertical taillights similar to the CTS Wagon, staggered-width wheels and a narrower daylight opening for the side windows. The last time we saw the fourth-generation 'Slade back in October in spy shots, the heavy camouflage prevented us from getting an idea of the luxury SUV's appearance, but this image and description gives us something to look forward to. Head on over to Carscoops for more potential information as well as a full rendering from back in January.
Cadillac will be taking on Tesla Motors, the underdog EV manufacturer that's seen heaps of critical acclaim and stock market buzz with its most recent sedan, the Model S. "If you want to compete head-to-head with Tesla, and we ultimately will, you want to do it with a Cadillac," Dan Akerson, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, told media in Washington, according to The Detroit News.
Thu, 25 Sep 2014 09:44:00 EST
Akerson continued, telling The News, "We'll sell more Volts and lose less money on the Volts than they'll lose on the Model S." He also took time to point out that Tesla getting vehicles out to customers isn't a guarantee of success or permanence, using Fisker as an example, saying "Does anybody even remember Fisker? I mean, there were a number of them; they are all gone."
This strong talk from Akerson comes after Doug Parks, another GM exec, let slip that the Detroit-based manufacturer has an EV in the works that will cover 200 miles per charge and only cost about $30,000, a massive upgrade over similarly priced EVs that struggle to top 100 miles per charge. Until that vehicle arrives, though, GM is preparing the Cadillac ELR, a small coupe that, like the Volt with which it shares technology, uses a gas engine as a mobile generator to recharge the batteries. Akerson took aim at Tesla again, saying, "But I do think when the ELR comes out late this year, early next - it's certainly the same postal code as Tesla, but now we're going to move up. It's not going to be a mass-produced car."
The US sales issues facing Cadillac are not being paralleled in the People's Republic of China, as a new report from Automotive News indicates the US luxury maker should see its sales increase by as much as 40 percent.
The report cites Cadillac's own forecasts, which put its 2014 sales in the PRC at 70,000 units after cresting 45,000 vehicles at the end of August. Provided the sales pace holds true through 2015, the brand would hit its new 100,000-unit sales goal, AN reports.
"We're very optimistic about the luxury market, we believe that the luxury market by 2016 here will become the largest luxury market in the world, surpassing even the size of luxury in Europe," GM China President Matthew Tsien told AN. "With [Cadillac president] Johan [de Nysschen], we have somebody that really is an executive that understands luxury, but he also is very, very keen on understanding what do we need here in China for Cadillac to be successful."
