You might not know the exact name of this vehicle, but you definitely know it. It’s the iconic white ’59 Cadillac ambulance from the “Ghostbusters” movie series. This 1959 Cadillac sold a staggering 142,000 units, which is very respectable by today’s standards. Cadillac sold several models, including the Eldorado, Fleetwood limousine, and even a bare chassis with engines for commercial users like ambulances and hearses (via Lego).
Thanks to its timeless design, incredible power, and quality, the 1959 year remains one of the best years in Cadillac’s history. It’s also one of the landmark American cars of all time. The wagon model that was the basis for ECTO-1 was, in coach-built by an outside company and used as a hearse or ambulance, which was standard in the late 1950s and ’60s.
