JGES produced the KdF WAGEN in two type of sets with the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (German Red Cross) theme. The first set had two of the JGES KdF Wagens, one the yellow-cream color and the other white, both with the red cross insignia. The driver’s side front fender had a flag for the red cross insignia. Also in the set were two trailers with storage lids and five medical type signs. The KdF Wagens had a tow hook as part of the rear bumper for pulling the trailers.

The second set with the name of Sanitätswagen (ambulance) has only one KdF Wagen, yellow-cream color, which is the same as in the first set. The JGES KdF Wagen is mounted on a brown square Bakelite base with lettering stating Modell, KdF Wagen, < Sanitätswagen>, PH/6-10.40 and the Phenoplast logo.

The boxes had a message to the toy shop owners who received these boxes for review only. They were asked to send the boxes back to JGES after 10-14 days, so that these boxes could be send to other potential clients also. JGES also indicated that these show boxes represented a substantial value for JGES.
