Since 1974, the federal government has mandated a truck cab...
with a modular body. This regulation is know as the K-spec
(Federal Specification for Star-of-Life Ambulances KKK-A-1822).

This is the reason there are no more Cadillac (or any other sedan-based ambulances) around anymore.

Those that still exist with a fire department, rescue or private ambulance service can be used in parades or fund raisers but not to carry patients.

The Professional Car Owners Assn members collect these professional cars including ambulances, hearses, and flower cars. Their magazine is first rate.
