Wanderer 1942

W 23 - discontinued


A completely new 1.5 t short-hood truck was built from 1942 initially with Wanderer, later with Opel engines. Despite quite good results of the military trials carried out in the summer of 1941, production was not aproved by the chief representative for motor vehicles. Instead, Wanderer had to manufacture the Steyr 1500 A and the tracked tractors Ost, also developed by Steyr, in considerable numbers.
