Product Details

The Ford T was not only the first car to be massed produced but was also one of the first vehicles whose chassis was to serve as the basis of numerous specialized vehicles.

This ambulance was used by British, American and French forces. Ford manufactured more than 2,400 Ambulance bodies through the course of the war. The chassis was shipped in a wooden crate, which was then used to create the rear body of the ambulance. The light weight of the Ambulance made it well suited for use on the muddy and shell torn roads in forward combat areas. If stuck in a hole, a group of soldiers could lift one out without too much difficulty.

The vehicle could carry 3 stretchers or 4 seated patients as well as two more in front with the driver. The model was well liked by the drivers and was affectionately nicknamed "Tin Lizzie".

Red Cross volunteer drivers including writer Ernest Hemingway, and cartoonist Walt Disney, drove the Model T Ambulance during WW1.
