Wanderer W 23 convertible, 1939

In 1937 two new Wanderer model series appeared: the W 23 with 6-cylinder engine and the W24 with 4-cylinder engine. These were in keeping with the Auto Union strategy of standardised drive and suspension components and of harmonised body concepts. Positioned in the upper midsize class, the Wanderer W 23 was available either as a saloon with body built by the Horch coachmaker or as a convertible with body supplied by Gläser from Dresden.
