Eden's Gallery

Thes are some photos of Eden before and just after her purchase by Richard. After agreeing to purchase Eden that it was discovered that it was a Series 2 Ambulance, not one of the more prolific Series 2A's. There is plenty of work to keep Richard busy. There is a lot of surface rust on the vehicles chassis, with the end of both chassis rails needing welding repairs. The footwells have suffered from the ravages of time and both have rust. The damage from rust turned out to be considerable so the whole firewall will be replaced with one sourced from Dennis M. The clutch master cylinder is dead. Although the engine supposedly runs, although has yet to be tested. Body wise there is some damage to the rear LHS, and some lichen growing on the roof, but otherwise Eden is in reasonably good condition.

On the plus side, almost all of the interior fittings appear to be in place, as are the exterior fittings. Four stretchers have already been sourced, as has a red beacon light for the roof (abet a later model one). The document box from between the seats is missing, however Richard thinks he may have a lead on one. One of the few items missing from the inside of the vehicle are the 4 patient fans. A later type has been put in place of one, but the other 3 are missing. The capstan winch is also missing.
