Hi, Looks to be a proper barndoor ambulance from the rear end, and from the D shaped fuel filler on the side. Also, from the cut down barndoor engine lid. Best place to find more details on early busses and compare is www.barndoor.dk 8)

Dont forget to send Tonny some pics and the chassis number for the register at that site! 8)

I reckon this busk will be a bit slower... cant see it shifting for that... especially when the Pouond is weak! :lol: :wink:
