A few more pic for NVRob to salivate over.
E450 Ford, Type III.At the volunteer ambulance corps we have three type III PL customs on Ford E-450 chasis, and one Freightliner FL50 also from PL Custom vehicles. At the Hospital EMS service I work for all are type III Wheeled Coach custom series except for BLS city 911 units which are Wheeled Coach vans....
Our Ford Type-IIIs have about a 14"x14" pass through between the cab and box. Chevys it's giant but still not something you can walk through.That's a sharp looking rig in the first pic Tigger.
More generally, I love the room up front and the reduced engine noise that type-1s have, hate the tiny pass-through. I love the door-like pass-through of the type-3s but hate the lack of room up front and the roaring engine noise. I'd do horrible and disgusting things for a type 1 rig with a type 3 pass-through.
Psh, just cut a hole in the garage door so it closes around the hood :lol:We would get the extended cabs but our central station is not big enough to house a bigger rig than what we have now.
I have no use for the pass throughs, I am way too tall to fit. Our new Type III has a fridge mounted on the floor in it and the AC unit from the ceiling so the gap is no bigger than the pass through.
Great minds think alike lol. Why do you think it won't have any go? The new turbo diesels are making 700-800 FT/lbs of torque stock nowadays.That was my suggestion haha. Seriously we couldn't get the interior layout we wanted (6" wheelbase increase) on the new one without switching to a Type III. Which guarantees it will have no get up and go as you can see how big our current boxes are and they at least have a turbodiesel hauling them. The ride will certainly be better though.
