It was the wheel-standing ambulance.

If it's going to be a 4x4, I suppose you wouldn't even need the marine V
drive. Just mount the transfer case backwards. Of course, you'd need to
use the offset axle in the rear instead of the front. If you used an
Atlas t-case, you can pick one axle or the other to get power, otherwise
you'd have front wheel drive on the street.

No, it's not a very realistic idea, but as long as we're dreaming... :-).
