Sorry, but clearly Atlas don't know the subject.
First, it's not a Miller Meteor if it's scripted "Superior" on the rear fender...

Superior is a coach builder company, as well as Miller Meteor( Wayne Corporation) is another one.

So same incongruity here as seeing a Ford Mustang model with a "corvette Stingray" script on it...

This Cadillac is a Superior Ambulance.

Then, proportionally and accurately speaking, it's quite far from the real car, and the model share a lot of similarities with NEO's latest ambulances and hearse, as well as 1/18th Precisions Miniatures '59 Cadillacs, such as way too stretched rear decks and overly disproportionate fins.

1959s HotWheels's Ecto-1 Cadillac ( Miller Meteor conversion ) and GLM's Broadmoor Skyview ( Hess & Eisenhardt conversion ) are quite more accurate but also quite more pricey.

Now, all things considered, it's only 15-20 bucks, so why not ?

It has some charms ! ;)
