1963 DKW Auto Union Munga Jeep
The DKW Munga is an off-road vehicle built by Auto-Union (Now known as Audi) in Germany. The name Munga comes from a German phrase which translates as "multi-purpose universal off-road car with all-wheel drive". Such a creative name for an absolute workhorse!
Produced from 1956 through 1968, the Munga was widely used in military, police and civilian applications. They were especially popular in locations where a "Go Anywhere" transport was needed due to poor or non-existent roads. In addition, because of reliability and stamina, the Munga was utilized in foreign military formations within NATO.
