Incidentally, the word „MUNGA“ comes from the German phrase
which translated means, multi purpose universal cross-country car with all-wheel drive.
This car was built by Auto Union, Ingolstadt. The production began in October 1956 and ended in December 1968. During this time 46, 750 cars were built. The old Auto Union AG was one of a number of leading industrial enterprises near to ruin through Germany`s collapse and arbitrary partition an the end of the war. Those manufacturing facilities and production drawings that did survive the war were in the newly created Eastern Zone and where expropriated without compensation. In 1949, plans for the construction of new manufacturing facilities began to take shape, and the foundation stone for the new premises of AUTO UNION GmbH was laid at Ingolstadt in Bavaria. The 38th International Motor Show at Frankfurt in the autumn 1957 was a great success for AUTO UNION GmbH. About this time the DKW cross-country car was launched. The vehicle, which has extraordinary stamina, was not only adopted by the West German „Bundeswehr“ as a vehicle unique in its class but was also bought in large numbers for the German Border Police and various foreign military formations within NATO.
The civilian version of the DKW cross-country car was widely adopted in Western Germany for agricultural and forestry work in particular, and also became popular abroad, especially in those countries where „go anywhere“ transport was needed because of poor roads, as, for example, in large parts of South America and South- Africa. Around 2000 cars were delivered to the Dutch army, many of which were shipped to the UK in the late 1970s.
