10..3.61  date insert's into the steel shell mould (master)  , typical thin-wall casting method using resin/sand mix.   Quite conclusive & you can see the date within the Serial branded number, play guessing games with the rest.

I recall two or three locally late 1970's / early 1980's , in daily use but odd one did turn out at Classic car shows  -  always referred  to as a MUNGA,   I quite likes the body style & design however not the name -  I always told the owners to call them a  DKW.   I suppose at that time-line the Rolls Champ was becoming too desirable to use as a hack  ? 

I doubt if there are more than several show vehicles in all UK presently.

In those days - no benefit the internet to glean the origins ,of the origins of the name  MUNGA  ,  BUT thanks to Wiki  - now I know  :-

The DKW Munga was a DKW-branded off-road vehicle built by Auto-Union in Ingolstadt, Germany. The name Munga comes from the German phrase Mehrzweck UNiversal Geländewagen mit Allradantrieb, which translates as "multi-purpose universal off-road car with all-wheel drive" Wikipedia
