Autotrader Find: 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood Ghostbusters-Style Ambulance

This is one of the most unusual vehicles I’ve ever seen listed for sale on Autotrader. It’s a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood — which, already, is unusual — except it’s the ambulance body style, which makes things even weirder. And then it’s been converted into sort of a modern Ghostbusters-style vehicle, with a raised roof and a large flat surface in back.

As if all that wasn’t strange enough, there’s also this: It’s a 1-owner example, meaning the same person has had it for 25 years — since it was a new car. Yet it’s only done 224 miles, meaning the same person has also kept it, basically undriven, for that entire time period. It’s now listed for sale by Orange County Auto Wholesale in Orange County, California, south of Los Angeles, for $19,900.

Our first stop with this unusual vehicle is that ambulance body style. While Cadillac ambulance models were once common, they’ve barely existed for decades — so it’s weird to imagine someone ordering a Cadillac ambulance in 1993, when “real” ambulances (based on Ford vans or other vehicles) existed at the time. Of course, it’s also unusual that it was converted to a high-roof Ghostbusters lookalike vehicle, and yet the interior was left so sparse — almost as if it was a project that started when this vehicle was new, 25 years ago, and never finished. And then there are the miles: why would someone buy this new and never drive it? It’s not like it’s an ultra-rare or ultra-exotic Ferrari or Lamborghini.

While those questions may not have good answers, at least you can buy this thing if you’re interested in it: It’s listed for just $19,900, meaning you can finish the “modern-day” Ghostbusters project if you’d like — or do any number of other things with a basically-new Cadillac hearse limo.
