The Wang machine was the 2200, first introduced in May of '73.   It
definitely had BASIC in ROM.
There were a number of different versions, but they were all 2200-series

For more information, see Jim Battles', a really
great website with everything you want to know about the 2200 series,
including an emulator that runs the original ROM code.
