This is a 1962 Hess & Eisenhardt S&S Professional body mounted on a Cadillac chassis.
It represented an interior headroom of 54", radical design interior storage cabinetry and in-line oxygen and vaccum suction. It featured three "Solar-Ray" vertical and horizontal sweeping forward facing warning lights, a newly introduced 184 beacon and a Federal Q2B mechanical siren underneath the hood all manufactured by the Federal Sign & Signal Corporation. It was probably one of the most expensive ambulances of that era but was recogized as an icon in terms of advanced design that was years ahead of its time.
