Wow, minty fresh..the box is even mint except for the tape. Great score!!!
That one is from 1969. You can tell because it has paper labels instead of decals.
Other than slight base plate variations, that's about it for variations on this casting.

The SF had 2 different diameter wheels, both could be found with different size red cross's and the SF had varying paint shades, that's about it.

Some advice; paper labels SUCK. Try to avoid touching them as the oils from your fingers turn them into a funky mess.
Decals are MUCH cooler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's a couple of my beaters.
I did the hearse when I was 12 years old!

Hubba hubba, nice ambulance, I hope the nurse is just as pretty. The modern MB Cadillac ambulance/hearse isn't this correct. The paper decals are funny, they always look homemade, like they had people at Lesney cutting them out with craft scissors.

Not a bad custom hearse Lummox. Nice macabre project for a twelve year old. ;)

Home-spun Navy Ambulance

That hearse is really good. What's the story with the C5? One of your customs or a variation? Even a pre pro?
Some kid painted it flat military blue to make it look like a Navy ambulance.

The decals are probably from a model airplane or some sort of military ambulance.

Next to my hearse I made, this custom Navy ambulance is my favorite play worn hand painted Lesney - I love it!
