Spotted this weekend

Lovely to log on this morning and see across social media some familar cars enjoying the sunshine this weekend. Our 1976 VW T2 Ambulance at Glemham Hall and our 1969 Pontiac Firebird 350 parked up in Southwold.

It’s official: Suffolk now has one more ambulance on the road

That’s right…the lights, sirens and beacons are all up and running and working just like they did in the 70’s.

Our very unique 1976 German Red Cross ambulance is now ready to leave our workshops and enjoy some summer outings across Suffolk.

The running and power drain issues were due to a blown fuse caused by worn wiring. The wiring has been repaired and now the charge is operating as it should with a brand new battery installed.

Installing the beacon and lights

We are now in the process of refitting and wiring up the original red cross front light to the roof of the ambulance and an original blue beacon has also been sourced and will also be mounted up too.

The areas will be cleaned up prior to the parts being refitted.

In order to fit up the roof mounts the windscreen and headlining has had to be removed to gain access.

1976 VW T2 Ambulance: How She Should Look

Our brief is relatively straight forward on this one. Our 1976 Volkswagen T2 has arrived in to our workshops to reinstate some of the original features.

The beacon, red cross light and sirens have been removed right back to the source so we are looking to rewire the cabin and refit the accessories to bring her back to her original look.

1976 VW T2 – rectifying the running issues

Deutsches Rotes Kreuz Ortsverein Laufenburg. In our workshops today we have a beautiful 1976 VW T2 camper with some power related issues. Although brand new, the battery seems to be losing charge on a regular basis which has now resulted in the vehicle being completely powerless. This has resulted in one of the main fuses being blown so we will search deeper to find the route of the issue.

Translated in English as German Red Cross Local Club, Laufburg, whilst in, our camper will have some of the original features fitted back on to the vehicle. We are currently waiting for some parts to arrive from Germany before so we look to reinstate the beacon, the red cross light and the front sirens.
