DKW Cadango

The DKW Candango is a Brazilian version of the Munga. Only 7848 units were built (1958-1963), with 4x4 and 4x2 transmission. Technical details:
Engine: 2 stroke, 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder, 50 HP;
Gearbox 1st 1:3.818, 2nd 1:2.411, 3rd 1:1.478, 4th 1:0.915, rev 1:4.581, low range 1:1.604, diff ratio: 1:6.333
Suspension: 4 wheel independent, with helicoil springs, 1085kg;
Tyres: 6.00-16
Top Speed: 98 km/h

The Candango (ex DKW-Vemag jipe), was made by Vemag - Veiculos e Maquina Agricolas (near vehicles and farm machines), a joint venture with Auto Union - DKW and 2 other German groups. In 1967, the Vemag was sold to VW group, and all models (DKW sedan and station) was finished.

The passenger cars was very popular. But, the Candango (maybe low power or no traditional 4x4 company), had little success. Remember, in Brazil, the most popular off-road vehicle is the VW Sedan and Willys Jeep. A rare car - a few years ago (1989) I saw only one in action (a 4x4 model). julioflorez@uol.com.br --> - Julio Florez [7/'00]
