Commercial and Military Vehicles

1970 bmc ambulance

A superb entry in the commercial vehicles section in 2011 was this BMC ambulance built in 1970. This belonged to the St. John Ambulance and was the last one with the old black and white livery.

The current owner from Carlisle has done a fair amount of maintenance work on the outer shell to keep it in this remarkable condition but the inside has been kept exactly as the original.

This includes the uniforms and even the smaller items such as the bandages and and the nurse's flask clipped to the front wall.

This 1949 Ford Pickup originally imported from South Carolina was also pulling another American classic - the Airstream Silver Bullet caravan or Travel Trailer as they prefer to call it.
