DODGE M43 AMBULANCE
Produced to replace the WWII-vintage Dodge WC-54 and WC-64 KD ambulances, the M43 Ambulance is a member of G-741 3/4 ton 4x4 truck family (G-741) With the exception of a slightly longer wheelbase, the M43 shares most of the specifications of the M37 cargo truck. The M43’s wheelbase of 126 inches is the same as the V41 Telephone Maintenance truck.
The steel ambulance body, however, is quite different from the G-741 M37 or M42 trucks. The M43 body combines the driver’s compartment and litter compartment into one extended unit, Each side of the rear body supports two litter racks that can be folded up and latched to the wall to accommodate upright passengers on bench-style seating.Furthermore, a heating and ventilating system is built into the body with a surgical light and a dome light illuminating the litter area. A folding step on the rear of the vehicles provides access to double doors.
Dodge produced the M43 ambulance from January 1951 to July 1954, with a few delivered after that date.
