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 six 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 illustrated 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.
