Success assured: 1951 Packard 200 Fire Dept. Ambulance by Henney

Henney coackworks used, back in the fourties and fifities, to build ambulances and hearses: often the same coach was multi-purpose and the difference between the two option was, basically, color and sirens.

This car was an ambulance used by the Fire brigade somewhere in Washington state: it looks like a proper time capsule with all the bits and equipment in their place, including the rear compartment which, seen with modern eyes, looks being just out of an horror/splatter movie.

The engine bay too looks like a time capsule: the inline-eight flathead engine (it should be the 288 c.i. unit), along with all the ancillaries, looks just a sixty years old unrestored engine is supposed to be.  The seller says that this car would work great for promoting everything and the success is assured. We like it even without such assurance. Find it for sale at €29,000 (today $39,000) here in Hoevelaken, The Netherlands.
