Was listed in the wrong category. It will probably reappear so eBay can get correct fees. Nice old Dodge though.

the only problem with them was if you were forced to drive you felt like a monkey on a football. then the understeer and body roll took some getting use to but they would go. see the elected for a aftermarket carb and intake instead of pulling the factory one a drilling out the by pass. cold start was alway a challenge with the dodges.

It has a beacon on top which is covered by some type of shroud in the picture. I could only see it by enlarging the photo. I agree with the fork comment. I don't care for any part of it and yep, I worked out of something very similar.

Drove one like that for Alert Ambulance in Flint back in the day. We fondly referred to it as "The Penthouse".

Those "faired-in" emergency lights were a feature of Amliners for a few years. (In the "everything-old-is-new-again" file, this style of lights is now popular for Demers ambulances.) Here's the ad:

Default Amliner

Older amliners 70's had the enclosed tunnel lights and a "dovetail" spoiler on the roof. I know this type of vehicle well. my partner and I were running code3 to drop off our patient who was in a wheelchair (with a tie down) when he hit a pickup truck broadside. I held onto the patient so he wouldn't get hurt.
But I moved the Oxygen cabinet a few inches.
