A few more pic for NVRob to salivate over.

Me want. On a different note, you're the first person I've seen with those shears besides me.

Trucks at the agency I volunteer at




There's a few units more but those are the Google-able pictures I found. I prefer the short-nosed trucks for their maneuverability but damn does that Chevy get up and go.

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.... :D
E450 Ford, Type III.

We've got two F450 Lifelines and three F350 Wheeled Coaches that have been repowered and refurbished. One of the Wheeled Coaches and the two Lifelines are the first out ambulances and the other two WCs are ready reserves used for call backs or when ambulances go in for PM. We also have a lifted E350 Type II that I need to get a pic of, it is one goofy looking rig but will not die.

Also about to put an E450 Lifeline with a a gasser in service soon as the central station's first out ambulance during nice weather.

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.

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.

We stopped refurbing from the Ford to the Chevys for reliability.

I'd love a Type-I extended cab but they say they're too long for here...

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.

Psh, just cut a hole in the garage door so it closes around the hood :lol:

The few pass-throughs I've seen I couldn't even walk through easily at 5'8". Although it would be nice to be able to go between the box and cab to kick it on the bench and catch some Zs without having to open the door and let the AC out.

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.

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.

Supposedly since they stopped refurbing to the Chevy chassis like I said we're gonna end up with a bunch of V10 tritons...shoot me. We will see though, doesn't make any sense with all the hills we deal with.
