Shades of Ghostbusters! Can you have a bling ambulance? If you can this is it. God knows how practical it was for transporting injured and sick people. In the UK at this time we had very tall cream-coloured Commers and Bedfords that you could walk about in - the Yanks (we are led to believe) had these stylish pieces of mobile architecture to take your granny to hospital. However it does remind you quite a bit of the hearse in Diamonds are Forever.

From 1962 to 1966 the ambulance had been cream over dark red, in 1966 the design was revised and it was recoloured to pale blue over white and metallic red over metallic silver. The later releases tend to get the better prices. The model was finally deleted in 1968.

My example? Its a wreck really. Dirty, playworn and all the electric gubbins missing. I've got one of the earlier red ones which is a bit better, but I really think I'll live with this one in my collection as it's not really a model that gets me going.
