The Kaiser Jeep M725 was the ambulance version of the M715 US military vehicle. This series was based off of the Jeep Gladiator, and was produced for about two years starting in 1967.During that time many M725’s were used during the Vietnam War. These vehicles, unfortunately, proved to be too unreliable for wartime use, and production was stopped.
They were four-wheel-drive and weighed about 5,000 pounds. Each ambulance could carry up to five stretcher cases. This was a standard military design which included a surgical light, air ventilators, double rear doors, gas heater, and a sliding door separating the driver & co-driver from the rear.
