Bought an ambulance

‘67 Kaiser M725 with a SBC conversion. Still connected to the T98 transmission and stock running gear. Bought it for the beach and hauling larger items.

Entertaining putting in all modern axles, engine, transfer case etc.

Not sure. Haven’t done a thing to it since I bought it. Have to wrap up other vehicle projects first.
