Description

The Ambulance is a casting which debuted in the 1970 Heavyweights Series of futuristic trucks designed by Ira Gilford. The Ambulance uses the medium length body which was also used on the Tow Truck, Scooper and Snorkel. It features a large wrap-around front with the cab over the front axels which took inspiration from concept vans of the era. It was only manufactured in Hong Kong and came with blue tinted windows and either a white or dark gray interior. The rear part has an opening door with a stretcher and seats inside, decorated with 'Red Cross' symbols and a blue 'glass' dome. It came packaged with a metal collectors button or a rarer plastic version.

In 2011, the Ambulance was re-tooled for the HWC Series 10 - Real Riders.

This version of the Ambulance is not to be confused the casting of the same name released in the 1989 Hot Wheels Workhorses line. See also Ambulance (1989).
