I believe it's a DKW "Munga"!
That jeep was produced by Auto-Union.

You are welcome Mark.
Have a look a that video ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bVlWBdRajI
You can even smell the exhaust gases from that 2 stroke 3 cyl. engine.
It had the characteristic noise of the the Auto Union / DKW, Wartburg or Trabant cars when decelerating :lol:
DKW was later taken over by Audi/VW.
What a pollution !

Another period, another jeep, another women.
I like that M151 MUTT.
A very nice design!

The Mini Moke is really a fun "jeep" very low on the road, like a kart.

Many thanks for the video Yves, the Munga looks like a cross between a Kubelwagen and a MUTT. Mini Mokes, they built those about a mile away from where i live. I know the British Army ordered a load, then discovered the ground clearance was too low. They exported many of them to Cyprus and Australia. I was in Cyprus several years ago and seen a few knocking about. There are also several in England, they do look pretty good. :D

Almost the last ones.
It's not necessary to jam Ron web server by publishing the same pictures multiple times :wink: .

Here is one photo of the liberation in Paris.
I don't know how many Dames are on the jeep :)!
The Jeep seems to support that load very well !
That could be an appropriate "Bye Bye" photo :) !
