Following the successful trial of MICA 208,  the Peninsula Ambulance Service
introduced the next Victorian MICA Unit following the death of a high profile football player

Soon after Melbourne introduced two more MICA Units due to the increasing workload. 
MICA 2 at the Alfred and MICA 3 at the Western General in Footscray.  Still
lacking funds, both Units were given old Dodge D5N Clinic Cars
converted to carry the new range of MICA gear introduced.

Both Units would only last a short time due to mechanical problems which
 included brake failures and constant engine brake downs
