The A.S.S. was a French automobile produced from 1919 to 1920 by Bernard Verdy. Advertised as "L'automobile pour tous",[1] the car was powered by a 1240cc, 12 hp (8.9 kW) two-stroke Thomas engine and used a 2-speed epicyclic transmission. The car featured electric lights and starter. The vehicle was launched as a 4-seat tourer (the catalog also mentioned a 2-seat coupe) in March 1919 at a cost of 4750 francs. Plans for mass production went unrealized, and in March 1920 it was announced that the company had merged with the Société des Moteurs Thomas.[2]
