No title, I wi give bill of sale. I have owned it for 25 years. This is unique in that it is a four door. It was sent to the Siebert factory and stretched. It does have a flathead engine in it. It doesn’t run.

Siebert of Toledo, OH built by stretching Ford and Mercury two door sedans into four door ambulances.  In addition to adding length to insert the four-door sedan rear doors, they would open the rear roof section around the rear window to attach it to the decklid to create a top hinged tailgate.  This 1944 is based on a Ford panel truck.  Siebert was among the low-cost coachbuilders.

I bought a Siebert ambulance converted from a sedan delivery back in high school. Thought it would be neat along side by buddy's then current ride, a '37 Packard hearse. Trouble was, the (private) school wouldn't allow either of us to park on school property. We negotiated a 30 day sell-off to keep our disciplinary records clean. Then "retaliated" by his purchasing a surplus Dodge army command car and I found a Ford Model AA dump truck. Luckily the year was almost over, graduation in sight, and nobody made a fuss.

 

Here's a Siebert combination car made from a sedan delivery (not nine):
