Description
Lot #613 - This 1948 desoto suburban four door, seven passenger station wagon was sold new in march 1949 in redding, california. Redding, california is one hour from the town of burney. The original owner was the burney fire district. It is a station wagon, not an ambulance. When the town of burney, california brought the desoto to the fire station, the back seat was removed, allowing station wagon to be used as first-call vehicle and ambulance, the gurney to be placed through the trunk opening to the rear of the front seat. Other than the siren on the left front fender and the flashing lights at the front of the roof, it is now and has always been a station wagon.the desoto was taken out of service by the burney fire district in 1950, being replaced by an authenic 1950 pontiac ambulance. The desoto was covered and stored on blocks in a warehouse in burney until 1992. It was then restored in santa rosa, california. The restorer replaced the original seat and covered both of them in naugahyde. The model s11 has a 139 1/2" wb, 19' long. It has a tip-toe fluid drive and easily accomodates seven passengers, seat belts for six . This land yacht has a gorgeous trunk floor of wood finished with chrome skid rails at the stern to rear of the rear seat. It is a home either on the freeway or at a drive-in movie. Pressing a toggle switch under dash, horn or siren is activated. Actor tom bosley of "happy days" drove a 1948 desoto custom suburban.
