"Interesting" reading!

Tells that the Amphi-Ranger was developed in 1946 Germany.
That is right after WWII when Germany was forbidden to develop amphibious vehicles.
The right answer is 1982 Germany. ;-)

The Amtrack LVT-1 (a TRACKED vehicle)
has a 1200 cc engine (same as the UK Herald) that drives the REAR WHEELS.

That sounds more like the engine of the Amphicar. ;-)
Amphicar 1147cc or Herald 13/60 (1296cc).
