Morris-Commercial LC5, but wait for the ambulance experts.

It’s this one, I think, better image than the rubbish main.


Scroll down to ULD 235.

Any help?

The 'rubbish main' is the best view of this vehicle from the movie.

Morris-Commercial LC5 yes (or badge engineered alternative Austin 301). edit - earlier LC4 eliminated by the bonnet catches being visible - LC4 had removable not hinged panels.

Appleyard, Herbert Lomas and Dormobile eliminated I think - who did the swoopy styled version I think needs an ambulance expert.

Possibly also 'The Saint' as here https://pics.imcdb.org/0is205/saint12032wd2.833.jpg

Out of interest kegare, any rear views please?

I think I managed to find it with the help of an earlier frame that shows the plate just enough:

This should be PDL 108

I don't know if it helps much, though.
Plate is now on a Mitsubishi L-200.

By a rather circuitous route, I believe this and 'The Saint' earlier Morris-Commercial Ambulance have bodies by Wadhams.

Wadhams, Lomas and Appleyard versions were common on the LC5, and its not Lomas or Appleyard; also Wadhams typically had the shaped rear door glasses rather than rectangular windows.

Also similar to this Morris-Commercial Wadham ambulance with a longer wheelbase compared with the normal 10ft 1in on the standard LC5.

Sunbar wrote Appleyard, Herbert Lomas and Dormobile eliminated I think - who did the swoopy styled version? (...)

The Wadham Bros. Ltd. of Waterlooville did this swoopy style in various variations (WTF?!). See a similar one in this advertisement from 1954:

Edit: OK, I see you already came to the same conclusion. :)

Thanks that adds further to the chassis information for the longer LC5 type they describe it as NVS = so despite only single rears the its Morris-Commercial NV (S=Six-cylinder engine edit: in 1930s usage or possibly single rears but that suffix I think was generally used later.)
