The Wanderer W 22 Kübelwagen was developed as successor for the Wanderer W 11 Kübelwagen but was not accepted by the Wehrmacht. Most probably, less than 50 exemplars were made in 1933 and 1934. The rims with 6 holes were typical for this model.
Because the Wanderer W 22 Kübelwagen served well during several cross-country tours, it was finally accepted by the RAD. The shown W 22 Kübelwagen of the RAD was photographed in Flensburg on 4th August 1941.
The Wanderer W 22 Kübelwagen was rarely used by the Wehrmacht. This vehicle with the license number WL-19503 had a different bumper which was also used on the Wanderer W 50 Kübelwagen.
