Stolen?? Dodge WC54 Ambulance

Recommended Posts

Just posting on behalf of someone on the Dodge WC 54 forum:. He was having his WC54 transported from Beccles to Belgium and since the pick up on 6 February, the bloke who collected it has gone AWOL and not answering calls.  His Mitsubishi pick up truck, reg HX56DMU is indicated to have no current tax and MoT.  Sounds worrying.  The WC 54 is registered as 799YUL and has "Betty Boop" written on a mudguard/ fender.  Any sightings or sales of WC54 or bits is worth checking.

A photo of the Dodge innquestion.  Note name on mudguard and Norwegian style tyres.  It is hoped at this stage, this will turn out to be an innocent mixup, but if anyone spots or has any information, please let me know as the new owner is understandably very worried as anyone would be in this situation!

Assuming he used a trailer (?) the max towing weight for a 56 plate L200 is just 2700kg which is almost exactly the kerb weight of the WC54, add a trailer at about 750kg and he is well over the safe limit.  Hope it turns out OK but not looking good.

A trailer was used.  Possibly the bloke was picked up on a NRC for no tax/MoT and the rig is now in a Police compound.  It has been reported to the Police.  Fingers crossed.

FOUND!  Happy ending........the rig was turned back as too heavy!  Went back to its starting point.  Lesson: stick to tried and tested carriers!
