Here's a pic "The Grizzly Torque"; the 1957 ambulance bodied 107 used by Bristol Foster and artist Robert Bateman in their global expedition. They were in Canada in 1957.
It is mentioned in LRSOC Newsletter 68, and a video was made of the adventure.
Does WAC 337 still exist?

It certainly doesn't have the same body as the other ambulance bodied 107 Land Rovers I have seen photos of.
There are many differences, not at all like the Mountain Rescue vehicles.
It has fancier doors, the ambulance body does not step out behind the doors.
This one was used for a world expediton. I haven't found the video of the adveture.
James Taylor mentioned it in an LRO article in 1993.
Are there others with a body like this?
