Hi Bert,
That's a very good guess, but I don't think so. Disregard that fancy "custom rim" on the rearmost wheel.Take another look at the other wheel and think a bit lighter than the Krupp.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,
As far as I can see it could be a Büssing-NAG 31.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Well, we both see the same thing.

Excellent job of detective work with very few clues to go on!
Please give us the next question.

P.S. Any idea where that odd rear wheel came from?

Hi Max,

thanks a lot. Excuse me,please, for the delay of the next question. I was on holiday in Italy. Who can ID this ambulance?

Regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
I hope you had an enjoyable sojourn in Italy. To me the ambulance appears to be based on the Matford V8-F 91 A of 1939. I don't know if this variant had its own type number or not.

Hi Max,

excellent! That´s exactly a Matford type F 91 A. And I thought it is not so easy to ID this ambulance. B.t.w. I had a wonderful sojourn on the coast of Amalfi.
Now it´s Your turn to go on.

Best regards

Bert

Clue: This small manufacturer had to rely on a larger competitor for its engines and body parts.

Hello Max,
I think it may be a La Licorne Rivoli, either 11 or 14cv, of 1937?

Hi Kerry,
You are correct! I am unsure of the engine size but it is indeed a Rivoli of that era. Note the resemblance to the Citroen below who supplied the bodies with minor changes in trim:

Nice work and please proceed.

Hi Max,
Thank you. One interesting change to the Citroen bodywork was the bonnet louvres, which were much simpler on the Licorne.
Here is a new one, and, yes, it was a real, road-going, car. Soldiers throughout the ages have loved playing with novelties, just like all boys.
Good hunting,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry,
That was a good one! 175 cc of pure POWER! I believe the Model VB 60, (which did not require a driver's permit according to this ad) was a mere 100 cc.

Hi Max,
You have it! All that power and a touch of luxury, note the padded "leather" armrest!
Over to you,
Regards,
Kerry.
