Too right Chris, especially the hinge to door threads and the threads down the trailing edge of front mudguards.

Hi Jim, A possible solution, if you have enough room to work (you would probably have to remove the radiator) with a punch make a dent in the centre of the sheared bolt & drill about a 1/8" dia. x about 1/2" deep hole in the centre of the bolt. Then get a No. 2 or No. 3 "Ezy Out" You can buy them individualy or in a set from tool or auto shops. Good Luck  Wink

Hello Blown FC
I have just fitted a boot spring to my FE, one broke the other day & luckily I had a spare.

There are 2 types, a 1cm wide & 2 cm wide, obviously the wider one is best.

If it appears to be a good spring, locate the centre of it in the slot with the curled over lip towards the bottom.

Prop the boot open as far as it will go on the opposite side to which you are working so you don't knock it out Shocked

Place a blanket against the 1/4 panel & over the inner guard to prevent mishaps.

Locate a dirty big staight edge screwdriver (the bigger the better) into the curled over lip part & push it up toward the lug it locks into.

After about 5 attempts, go & have a beer, go back & have another go & most likely, success  Grin

Good luck, Gary

Hi all, Under the H medallion it is smooth, as if the H was meant to be there, although it could have carried a different badge or medallion in it's place.

All 3 wheel covers in the picture appear to have been made by the same manufacturer when viewed from the inside, and I have seen at least 2 others.

Hi Trev, I have a parcel shelf that I removed from an EK & also 1 from an FC, the EK one is longer, but apart from that they appear identical.

Thanks for the pics Les, won't be starting resto on my Ambo for at least 18 months as I am busy with my 219 FC wagon resto.
However I will still be collecting data & bits for the ambo over this period.
A member recently alerted me to a period siren on Ebay, which I was lucky? enough to win. Roll Eyes
Also a NZ member is in touch with me re a suitable auto fire extinguisher & possibly some lights.
Regards, Gary

Hello Craig, Any help would be greatly appreciated, particularly the lights. Send me PM with any details.
How are things in the Land of the long White Cloud?

Well in order of questions, It was advertised on this site by a QLD member for the owner, in Beaudesert in QLD.

It operated out of the neighbouring town Boonah QLD

It left service in 1969 & was sold to a bloke in Boonah who in turn sold it to the local International Dealer, Dover & Sons.

When they finished with it it was saved from the wreckers by the chap I bought it of.

Before leaving the area with the car, I visited the Ambulance Station where it served and was rewarded with the historical records of it's life in the form of entries in the minutes of the Stations meetings.

It's first duty was to rush a bloke from a sawmill to Hospital.

What I need for the restoration are the roof light, which I am told is probably like the items in the pics in this thread, like a a small driving light, lens painted white, with a red Maltese Cross in the centre.

There are a couple of small holes and a wire in the roof where this would have lived.

The other bits will be period oxygen cylinder/s & fire extinguisher, ohh & about ten thousand large. Roll Eyes

Hi Hewart, Alex is going to try & put some pics up for me from a cd, I'm hopeless.
The FC Ambulance I have has barn doors & alluminium cupboards in the back & only 1 back door, with a fold up attendants seat.
It also has black glass except for up front.
I am grateful to Craig & Hewart for finding these pics as it gives me a reference as to what the roof light/s should look like.
I would have to say though that an FE or FC Ambo would not be the preffered method of going to hospital.
If you required CPR, they would have to tip you out & do it on the side of the road!

Alex, Looks like it reversed into a concrete wall at speed.

Hi Rob, I have seen some examples of the Nasco rocker cover where the NASCO has been almost polished off, maybe thats what happened to this one.

Slim, I thought all fe-fec's had a scissor jack, although I have had commercial models with the bottle type.
Never seen a scissor with it's own bag, this jack was improved on for fb-ek by having a square drive with ratchet, instead of the tee rod drive which spreads open with use.

Slim, I think you will find the one with the slot is correct.
