Cool old russian vehicles! First: Austin-Kegrésse 1916, second Russo-Baltique-Kegrésse 1913

1913 Rus­sobalt Type-Kegresse



1939–1946. Total 33 840 units were pro­duced. This truck is pow­ered by gas gen­er­a­tor that used fire­wood (or coal) to pro­duce gas that pow­ers the engine. Because of this it has low power and speed, it is dif­fi­cult to ser­vice and not so easy to start up. But because the lack of gaso­line in some north regions this truck was indispensable.


Yag -12 all four front tires steer, 1932 to 1941

Pro­duced 1949–1953. This inter­est­ing car is kind of GAZ-M20 Bobeda based six seat mini­van


This is a 1956 4 wheel drive airplane towtruck, and can be switched to just front wheel drive. (only 13 made)
