(AP) A Fort Smith firm which built stagecoaches in the 1880s touted as holdup proof has shown that it can keep up with changing times. Now Armbruster & Co. turns out a 21-foot VIP Executive Limo which an advertising agency says offers top level executives "freedom from wiretapping, room bugging and competitive business surveillance." The luxury limousine is the latest product of the company, which has long bought standard vehicles and "stretched" them for use by airports, schools and even foreign heads of state. * .* * Stageway Coaches, Inc., the sajes division of Arrnbruster, has sent units across America and to the Far East, Middle East, Africa, Europe and South America. The first step Arm- bruster takes in rebuilding cars might make the average new car buyer cry. They cut it in half. Theo starting point for the seven-passenger VIP Limo is usually a Chrysler or Pontiac, according to the owner's wishes. The company adds 36 inches in the middle and uses the extra space for a custom built console which, again according to the owner's wishes, can include a refrigerator, refreshment bar, television, AM-FM radio, tape recorder or public address system. The passenger section of the 5,300-pound VIP Limo is cooled by an air conditioner in the trunk, while the driver gets the factory cooling unit. The base price is about $9,400, four times what Armbruster charged for its coaches that worked the Santa Fe Trail in the last of the 19th Century. Armbruster got into the streching business in the early 1920s, when a bus line asked the firm if it could make an automobile into a small bus. The bus company said it could not operate a large bus profitably on short runs. Through 1950, Armbruster averaged 20 units per year and employed between 6 and 12 men. Ed Robben took over ownership and management on May 1, 1950, and now the firm averages 500 conversions per year and has some 50 employes in a 35,000-square foot plant. It makes cars and panel trucks into units for 7, 9, 12, 15 and 18 passengers. Special limousines have been built for heads of government in Saudi Arabia and Lebanon. Besides airports, bus lines, government agencies and schools and colleges, Armbruster has converted units for sightseeing operators, oil and pipe line companies, ambulance companies, orchestras and athletic teams.
