|Land Rover Defender Ambulance|
I had just returned from my Trans-Africa trip so was in no position to make an offer on this nicely kitted Land Rover Defender Ambulance which I spotted for sale in 2006. I am not sure who the current owner is - if you do know, please get in touch.
I seem to think this was an early 1993 Defender 127 fitted with the Land Rover v8 3.5l petrol engine. The ambulance body was fitted by the firm Locomotors. A second firm, Marshall, was the alternative supplier of Land Rover Ambulance's.
Although the vehicle looks fairly large, the interior space is rather limited. The layout below has been neatly designed considering the space available. It has the essentials, like a cooker and basin however space is lacking for a small fridge and additional storage cupboards.

Additional Africa Overland trips:
There have not been many Defender Ambulances used for overland expeditions however the older Series II and Series III Land Rovers also came fitted with an ambulance body. Take a look at the following sites:
