Saw this in the March issue of Reminisce Extra. It's a 1955Chevrolet Barnette Ambulance, based on a Series 150 Sedan.

National Body Mfg. Co. of Knightstown Indiana probably built the 55 Chevy. It would have been based on a sedan delivery chassis.

They started building airport cars with up to 8 doors in 1955 using the new 55 Chevyl.

I would love to do that Ambulance.

And the 57 Stretch, and maybe even the 55 Airport Limo.

But...................

I would want Measured drawings. Especially for the Ambulance!

A friend of mine worked at National Body in the 60's when he got out of high school. He said it was amazing to see them take a brand new Cadillac,rip the interior out,and cut it in half!
