Wagons were either a LeSabre Estate or an Invicta Estate

This is one of 110 Flxette professional cars that were built by the Flxible Co. of Loudonville, Ohio, during the 1960 model year. For the specifications I'd like to hand over the mic to expert 60buick:

60buick wrote The Flxettes started life as an Electra 4 door sedans with grey interiors. Also have standard quarters, not 225\'s. The roof was cut away, standard station wagon doors were used and they put a custom top on it.

All the Flxibles seen in the link have a divided and curved rear window. That does not seem to be in evidence here

Start with pic #7. There are about 10 pics with this window arrangement

@supcoach Yeah, I know what you mean. All 1960 Flxibles except the Landau coaches and service cars have these curved windows you are referring to. We get fooled by the stairway in the background, that pretends to be a D-pillar, but it's not. I initially got irritated by that as well, but the shape of the roof incl. that rear corner looks right, the ambulance decals on the 3rd window (a cross and two horizontal lines - most Flxible ambulances from that era have these) end in the correct position and the shape of the service door also shows the correct proportions and vaguely gives an idea of being surrounded by curved elements when being closed. Beacon ray and tunnel lights spell Flxible and just to be sure I re-checked "Flxible Professional Vehicles - the complete history" by Thomas A. McPherson (= basically a copy of the actual company archives and factory pictures) after your post and even though I also can't 'see' that curved quarter window on the picture above, I'm sure it's there. :)
