This ambulance belongs to a gentleman in Iowa who I did a valuation for this past year. He has let me know the ambulance is going to auction on July 30 at no reserve. This ambulance is just plain magnificent, runs perfectly and has everything still intact including all interior components, working siren, lights, etc. Just amazig.

Hi, is it considered a 120, an 8, or super 8? What was your thought of valuation? Thanks, Chris

For an ID, how about a vehicle number or motor number or a picture of the motor. The Eight and the 120 are two expressions for the same model.

Sorry took so long to respond. VN A2369, to much paint on the block to find #, straight 8, guessing 130 bhp cause of size and it should be able to hustle down the road.

If it's an Eight a/k/a 120, the distributor will be mounted at an angle on the driver's side of the one piece, cast iron engine block.

If it's a Super Eight, the distributor will be mounted vertically on the top of the cylinder head, and the engine block will be two pieces, a lower cast aluminum crankcase and an upper cylinder section made of cast iron.

Dave: thanks for the simple answer. It's an angle distributor,hence a 120 or 8. Thanks for the help.
