The Multi-purpose cargo
truck GAZ-MM was produced on the basis of the GAZ-AA truck, but due to
enormous raw material shortages, the truck was produced with only the
highest required parts. The cab was simplified, as were
the mudguards / footboards the bumpers, a headlight and the second rear
axle were omitted and only the rear wheels were braked. Only the Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod plant produced the GAZ-MM trucks in the period 1941-1945.More than 138,000 trucks were built there.From 1947 the new car factory Ulyanovsky Avtomobilny Zavod made the GAZ-MM trucks.In total, almost one million GAZ-AA and GAZ-MM were produced in various versions from 1932 onwards.
