As I read this gen. was still called Toyopet in Japan, but as we can see the rear badge says Toyota...

From the second thumbnail, I can see that it's a 1967 Toyota Crown RS60 Van with a big ambulance body affixed to it.
I'm surprised such a teeny car could support such a big body.

I have it with help of the old Tomica toy car:

It is of course based on the Crown, but seems it was not called this way. This model with exactly the same body is described as: FS55V, what looks like modification of the "S50" code. I would list it as "Toyota Ambulance [FS55V]".
What is the Japanese word for Ambulance and how to write it?

Still a small mystery, why this gen. car was called Toyota and not Toyopet.

Why don't we call it "1967 Toyota Ambulance [FS55V] Kyukyusha.
That means Ambulance in Japanese. Or would you prefer the Japanese term as a model name.

Yes I think the Japanese word can be more proper. Thanks.
