2a blood box. Converted to workshop??
« on: November 08, 2014, 03:05:23 PM »
Hi guys.
I am a typical nut who buys rare things to either own, sell or destroy. Lol
I must take a pic of all the rare cars I have lined up. But

Here us my Bloodbox. I bought it to wreck as I wanted the box off it. But I've been told Noooooooooooooo I can't.

So here is the pix of it.
Question? Do I sell it??  Wreck it ??? Camper it??  I don't need it to be unused. I have lots of cars like that.
Lots of pix to come.

Hi Clarkie

There were a number of ambulances converted to electronic workshops which actually makes them a little rarer than mere rare ambulances.

The unit serial 32 makes it someone like 2 Cav an armoured Regiment, so likely the RAEME electronics craftsmen to keep the comms (intercom and radio) going in the regt.

It is suffering rather badly, but I don't know how you'll get along fitting a 60 body with an 80s chassis.  A bit of work needed for the 110 windscreen.

I've contacted the 2 that have been converted to 110 chassis. And extra brackets were needed. But no big issues in converting it.  Noting is hard to convert with the right attitude. My Auto conversion in the county was a walk in the park.
Considering it has a rust free chassis and it's a driver. Yeah the bulkhead needs attention. As does the door tops. I may just fix it and sell it.
Too good to wreck. But then again. It's only a land rover. Parts are easy to come by.

I never said you couldn't make it a camper, just that I wanted pics first  ;D

It is on ebay now for those interested, would be a fantastic restoration, if only I had the spare money, it would look great in the shed beside the ambulance.

I'll list it 3 times, if it does not sell. Then the body comes off it. ive decided if I keep it to convert the county to a camper. Will be a challenge, but I love a long drawn out challenge. Reason id convert it to my 110 is simple, disc brakes, lockers, wider track, V8, heater and AC. Negative to the conversion. We loose a genuine 2a ambo.
I don't know if I could handle driving a 2a long distances, yes we used to once. But we got soft. It was bad enough having a Kombi camper that I drove across aust in.... I love the 2a look, but the work to make it a comfort beast is costly. the running gear is perfect for the job, rust is no issue, Heating, AC and brakes is an issue, plus the ride.. Not yet convinced, but time shall tell....
What do I do if I sell it? Make a camper from the 110 from scratch, custom box on the back.
I honestly don't want to wreck a rare car to make another. Prefer it to be loved and nurtured...

BTW that price im asking is a Want, Not a Need.... Offers accepted.

Wish I had money to offer (and maybe a divorce may be required, but yeah!).

I dearly hope you find a new owner for it, but as I said before, it's yours to do with as you wish, I think it's a perfect fit to a county as a tourer realistically!

Members
What is known about this particular ERV, other than it may have served with 2 Cav as a RAEME unit?
Do we know the ARN?
Cheers

we do, and we do not know the arn.

The chassis under the vehicle came from a workshop vehicle, but normally the identity is retained with the body, not the chassis, so until we can work out what that was (is there any data plate showing the original chassis number) .

Somebody has to want it, I don't have the spare $$ to do it, although it would look good in the shed beside my ambulance once I finish wrecking the shorty!
