Universal Carrier Ambulance

Post by Peter Withers » Tue Feb 23, 2021 11:43 am

Hi, This is my first Armortek model and my first voyage onto the forum!

I'm part way through building UC number 64 and it occurred to me whether there were interesting variations of UC. I did find a few pictures of an ambulance version and I have to confess to thinking I'd like to convert mine to an ambulance. Is anyone else doing any kind of conversion or modification? The photos I found on line show a UC with upper sides extended to the back and the vertical rear panel above the mudgards missing. Two stretchers then fit one each side of the engine housing. Looks like the drawbar is missing and there are a few extra storage boxes. There is also a version with canvas tilt but I prefer the look of the open one at the moment. If anyone has any further info or pictures of ambulance versions I'd be very interested.

Thanks.

Yes, that was the first one I found but a deeper dig revealed this:
