We needed to catch our breath after running into this during RM’s Auctions America sale at Auburn last month. The basic car is a 1926 Buick Master, only this one had been fitted when nearly new with custom ambulance bodywork by the Hoover Body Company of York, Pennsylvania. The Buick apparently did the bulk of its rescue duty in that same city, having been trimmed by the coachbuilder with a stained-glass take on the York city seal.
This ambulance had a replacement 1926 engine, but everything else was as new, and the restoration was said to have run upwards of $60,000. No argument here. The rig was solemnly regal, and sold for what assessed was a just-right $44,000.
