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.

The first details about the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V recently hit the web ahead of the official debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. Now, the latest model to wear Caddy's high-performance V moniker is officially official, and the specs are even better than initial rumors suggested.
Thu, 10 Jan 2013 16:33:00 EST
The latest figures actually give the ATS-V a hair more power than first believed, with 455 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque pumping out of the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6. With a standard electronic limited-slip differential keeping rear wheels in check, Cadillac claims that the model sprints to 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 185 mph. Buyers have two transmission choices that both offer launch control: a six-speed manual featuring Active Rev Match and no-lift shifting, or an eight-speed automatic.
Thoroughly revised suspension and braking systems should also mean that the ATS-V excels at more than just going in a straight line. The chassis itself receives extra bracing to boost overall stiffness by 25 percent over lesser ATS models. On top of that, a host of suspension upgrades front and rear, including third-generation Magnetic Ride Control dampers, mean quicker steering response and a tighter ride. Plus, Brembo six-piston calipers up front and four-pistons in the rear should bring rapid deceleration. To tune it all to the driver's whim, the Performance Traction Management system gives five settings to choose from for stability and traction control.
A pair of camouflaged Cadillac CTS prototypes were spotted, and thankfully photographed, outside a grocery store in Southern California. From the image above - there are plenty more if you click over to TotalCarScore.com - it appears these could be testers for the 2014 CTS-V, but that is just speculation. We've seen the obvious "V" motif in the grille before, and there's what could be another "V" in the design of the side mirrors.

The hood on the car in the background appears to include two bulges, but the single shot that affords a tiny peek under the hood shows reveals only the airbox. Plenty of rumors, and the sight of an engine cover inscribed with the words "Twin Turbo," have caused people to wonder if a twin-turbo V6 will live under the production car's hood instead of the V8 currently there. In back, instead of the round tailpipes found outboard on all the CTS sedans, there's a pair of integrated tips in a parallelogram shape. A new shifter with contrasting stitching was spied in the cabin.
If predictions hold up it will arrive later this year. When it does, expect the body underneath all that camo to be softer on the eye compared to the current car - less science and more art. For now, hit the link to see more spy shots of what's coming.
Cadillac is in the process of applying the new wreathless emblem across its range one model at a time, but rather than simply slap the new logo on the existing models, it's taking the opportunity to roll out some revisions as well. First came the ATS coupe, followed by the updated ATS sedan, and now the flagship brand in the General Motors portfolio has quietly announced some revisions for the CTS sedan as well.
For the 2015 model year, the CTS - which was just introduced last year - gets a revised front end with that wreathless crest but also a new chrome grille with active aero elements on standard models and a black-chrome grille on the Vsport. The revised grille is flanked by new headlights, but behind them the engine lineup carries over: a 2.0-liter turbo four with 272 horsepower, a 3.6-liter V6 with 321 hp or - in the Vsport performance model - a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 with 420 hp that's still the most powerful V6 GM has ever made. All engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission (ditching the six-speed auto on previous versions) and (apart from the RWD Vsport) can be had in rear- or all-wheel-drive flavors.
Cadillac has also given the updated CTS some new electronics (including inductive smartphone charging, onboard wifi, and more advanced parking and lane assist systems) as well as new wheels, trims and color options, details on which you can read in the press release below.
