I'm an EMT, and on my last 36, had some thinking time, and watchin' RC videos on youtube, it hit me... I should make my Slash 4x4 into a boo-boo bus. Did some searching, and can't find anything close. Anybody know of any van, box truck, or panel truck type bodies in 10th scale that I could make fit? I saw a few for monster trucks, which I didn't know how it would fit. I think it has potential to be a cool project. My partner suggested to just buy a die cast one and mold my own body, which is the only option I can see at the moment too, but not sure of my abilities on that one.
Maybe the Dakar body from the 2wd? I don't think clear is available though so you'd have to get creative with decals.
Maybe a Hummer body with a serious paint job?
Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..
How about the hpi grave robber? They used to use those as ambulances...
Ya can't polish fertilizer...
Here's a pic of the grave robber body that I painted for a friend. Def screams old school ambulance made me think of the Ghostbusters car. Lol
And here was a pic of it sitting on my slash. Forgot I had taken this pic. Actually looked pretty good on there. I can take more for ya next time I have the body in my hands.

I tried looking for an rc body such as you are. My son-in-law works on the city EMT and firetrucks so wanted to give him one for Christmas but no luck. The closest I got was a 1980 Chevy Blazer body made by Proline. So it just resembled a unit from that era.
"enjoy your ride"
I would wait to see if the Dakar body eventually comes unpainted, it seems perfect for what you want.
