ID 19 Ambulance KM :26 489
COLOUR: Blanc Carrare AC 144
Same engine as the DS19: 90cv, 1985cc, 5 bearings
Since September 1965: new front drivetrain with XAS asymmetrical tyres on 5 bolt wheels rather than the previous central screw.
From 1960, the ID break is offered in the catalogue in 4 versions: the break with the 2 folding seats in the boot, the Familiale with 3 rows of seats, the Commerciale and the Ambulance.
On this last model, the only trim offered was Confort. There are separate front seats, the rear bench seat is in two foldable parts. The left seat is 3/5 of the width and is permanently folded to accommodate the stretcher. The right seat is 2/5 of the width and is for the ambulance crew.
The original roof is retained. The opening of the upper tailgate is aided by a telescopic strut, replacing a simple prop from September 1966.
On all the breaks and derivatives, the lower tailgate opens level with the boot floor. It has the feature of 2 registration plates allowing driving with the boot open, which makes it the only vehicle in the world with 3 registration plates.
Specific equipment (stretcher, flashing light, 2 tone siren, oxygen cylinder etc) is provided by the Carrier company (see invoices).
Option: Heating -5°C, power steering (absent here).
