Hemmings Find of the Day – 1932 Nash Series 990 ambulance

Published in

1932 Nash Eight Series 990 ambulance by Miller. From the seller’s description:

This Nash epitomized classic-era elegance with its stained glass quarter windows and hickory spoke artillery wheels. Originally built by the renowned A.J. Miller Co. of Bellefontaine, OH, its exquisite restoration earned many awards, including an AACA badge. Originally commissioned by a funeral home in Port Jefferson, NY, at a then-staggering cost of nearly $4,800, the wheelbase of its top-of-the-line 990 series Ambassador chassis (powered by an overhead valve 298ci 115hp “straight-eight” twin ignition engine) was extended to just over 13 feet. The one-off rig subsequently served a succession of Long Island fire departments until the early 1960s.

The vehicle is equipped with a vintage emergency kit, a hand-pumped Pyrene fire extinguisher on the driv­er’s side running-board and a cowl-mounted warning bell that rings several times with a single pull of the cord. The radio was originally a one-way unit that was incoming-only. If you got a call, you had to pull over and use a pay phone to respond.

It has a single side mount spare with a leather strapped mirror. It shows just 46,449 miles which are believed to be the actual miles.
