If, for whatever reason, you’ve ever looked at an ambulance and wished you could own one, I’m happy to report that you have your chance. This is a 2009 Ford Econoline E-350 that was converted into an ambulance. No apparent steps have been taken to convert it back into a civilian vehicle, so it’s still very ambulancey.
This particular Ford ambulance still says “Ambulance” around the exterior and it still has the flashing lights and typical ambulance graphics — there’s no question what this thing is. Inside, there’s the usual cargo area, and it’s full of the usual ambulance accessories — though I, as a non-ambulance professional, don’t really know precisely what those are. But they’re there.
If you’re wondering who exactly would be in the market for an ambulance, I’d guess they’d fall in one of two categories. The first is people who are looking for an actual ambulance, and some ambulance businesses probably purchase used models. The other is people who are looking for some sort of camper or adventure vehicle — all the ambulance gear on this E-350 could easily be removed and replaced with a bed, a refrigerator, a table and so on.
If you’re interested, this ambulance is offered by a private seller in Reseda, California, in the Los Angeles area. It has more than 152,000 miles and it’s on sale for $11,500. I have no idea how that fits into the market. I’m not exactly sure what the going rate is for used ambulances. Find a Ford Econoline 350 for sale
