Ford E-350 Ambulances Available from Osage
There are several options for those looking for a Ford E-350 ambulance from Osage Ambulances. This chassis is used on Type I and Type III ambulances on the Warrior level models. Type I and Type III ambulances are both built on top of a chassis or a cutaway, rather than simply converting an existing vehicle into an ambulance. They carry a module which is separately manufactured and then attached to the existing chassis.
The Ford E-350 chassis makes a lot of sense for ambulances, as it has a long track record for success in the United States. The E-350 is part of the Econoline series, which has been in production since 1961. The vehicle has been built on its own platform since 1968, though the E-350 borrows a lot of components and design characteristics from the Ford F-Series, a line of pickup trucks.
