69-70 suburban ambulance pictures

My 6 yr. old son was watching Emergency on tv, and I snapped these from the tv. I thought someone on the board had a similar rig.? I watched the same shows when I was 6. 40 yrs and still worth watching.

Re: 69-70 suburban ambulance pictures

That rig from Emergency! is a 1969 Chevy C10 Suburban built by Stoner Ambulance Mfg. and as a matter of fact it resurfaced last year in Southern California after a very long slumber.



Happy to report it was purchased by an individual who is heavily into the restored emergency vehicle hobby. He immediately donated it to the LA County Fire Museum where it is currently undergoing a full restoration. Upon completion it will join their Emergency! collection which includes the original Squad 51 Dodge rescue truck and both the Crown and Ward LaFrance Engine 51s.

I own a similar Stoner ambulance built on a 1971 GMC C2500 Suburban. And as a matter of fact, I just got mine back on the road last month! :-)

A few more shots of this Emergency! ambulance which was an actual in-service unit owned by Synder Ambulance Service that was loaned to Universal for filming.







The interior is very similar to the setup in mine.

And it was ochre! I love that color.

Glad the unit is being restored.
