Ambulances

Most surviving CMP ambulances are the late production types based on the Ford F30 chassis, a 134 1/4" wheelbase version using the F15A running gear - ie light steering ends, single speed transfer case, no brake booster and 10.50 16 tyres. In early 2002, Hugh featured in the Melbourne newspaper The Age...
Hugh Thompson of Point Lonsdale in Victoria has had this low mileage F 30 ambulance for most of it's life, buying it ex disposals with 6000 miles on it. He rebuilt the motor for the trip to Corowa in 2002. It is an ex RAAF example. Interior shot of Hugh's ambulance. These pictures were taken in 1976.
Hugh also owns this ex RAAF example which is currently for sale.
This pair of bodies was seen at ADS weedsprayers in the early 1970s.
Converted ambulance photographed by Mike Fisher in the 70s. Nelson Wilson salvaged this ambulance body in the 70s.
     
Pic traken by Stephen Davis in the late 80s. See more of his photographs.      
You'll see these in other pages of this site but they were too good not to show again here. They came from the 1950s recruiting album.
The "jerrybuilt" step was a feature of some late production vehicles.
