Default My '74 M-M Lifeliner

Were the sguad benches that were used in the Lifeliners always a removable bench? I didn't realize, until I got it home, that this bench is removable. HUGE clean up job getting the interior of this one cleaned up! Have just put a dent in it so far.

Looks good Kurt, a little soap and water and the interior is done! Seems like everything is there.

I may not have been clear in what I was asking here. In looking at the '74 M-M ambulance brochure, I see that the interior that they show of a '74 Lifeliner has a fixed squad bench. My rig has an (obviously factory-installed) removable squad bench. Was this a running change, or an optional bench?

Richard's Lifeliner originally had a squad bench in it and I think it was removable and I think he removed it.

I did remove mine but do not think it was a factory option but more that someone created it.
