  9. Yes the 9 and the 27 are very similar ,think mine was made on the first production run in early 41 !,most of the internals were missing and the motor and gearbox had been removed but i have aquired most of the parts now ,need some front seats etc .These type of ambulances were used quite a lot in Mash which is funny you would think that there would be more 3/4 tons avaiable at that time !,mine was owned and used by a film company for many years thats why it had been alterd so much on the body ,im hoping to have a good year on it and maybe take to France next year for the 70th !.
