DKW Munga

Auto Union was created in the 1930s via the amalgamation of Audi, Horch, DKW and Wanderer, hence its now famous four-ringed badge. But of all the cars at the NEC of Auto Union descent, this one’s amongst our favourites: a rather splendid DKW Munga, an off-road utility vehicle produced between 1956 and ’68, powered by an 897cc three-cylinder engine. It proved popular with civilian and military buyers alike, with almost 47,000 examples sold. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the name stems from 'Mehrzweck UNiversal Gelandewagen mit Allradantrieb', which translates as ‘multi-purpose universal cross-country car with all-wheel drive’.

I had a similar white 4 seat 130GL from 1988 - 1991. I took it to the USSR via Czechoslovakia in 1989, and it was the centre of interest at the GDR/CSSR border. The guards and customs staff had never seen a Skoda with alloy wheels, or one with a sunroof and integral aerial, all fitted at Skoda's Kings Lynn import depot. This stretch Skoda certainly looked much better "in the metal" when I saw it on Saturday that many of the stretch Ladas still used as taxis in Cuba in which any safety-conscious traveller is very reluctant to use!

That Gordon Keeble has been for sale on GraemeHunt.com for ages. It's a beauty but the price has surely been dreamt up!

The sunroof with built-in aerial was supplied by Panarama Sunroofs, and fitted at King's Lynn by sub-contractors, as were the vinyl roofs and coach lines. The built-in aerial was in response to the previous A-post external aerial being declared illegal for type approval.

Seeing the DKW Munga and how Auto Union was created with Wanderer being one of the 4 companies.
I had never heard of Wanderer cars but I suddenly realised I had a model of a gorgeous looking sports two seater model W25K. It appears to have IFS by transverse leaf spring, and coil springs with a four cylinder OHV crossflow engine.
