Default Ferno-Washington Stretcher

Can anyone identify the model number of this folding Ferno-Washington stretcher for me? I found it in a scrap yard in a wrecked 1980s Dodge van ambulance. The serial number is 5111.

Is it safe to assume that the recessed aluminum "cups" in the floor near the rear door were to position the 2 legs in on one of these model 11 stretchers?

Yes, and some times, they also had wheel cups located further up on the floor that would match up with where the wheels were located when the rear legs were in the cups. Some ambulances were also fitted with a similar set up to accommodate the stair chair, when a patient was seated in it. Made for an interesting ride for both driver and passanger....

I plan on using the Ferno 11 as a second stretcher in my '75 Superior. The '74 Superior parts car is far better equipped and will donate its rear compartment accessories to the '75(including the stretcher leg cups, sky hooks, rear door and side cabinet, etc).

not a lot of changes in them. thought a orange one with the buckle straps would be more age appropriate for the 75. the one in Brendon's 63 had the canvas tied to the frame. the only one like that I have seen

I prefer not to have anything orange in the '75 as the interior is red and the car is going to be either black & white, or red & white. I'll keep an eye out for another one for you Ed!
