Classic Soviet Cars: GAZ-12 ZIM
Exclusive to Model Space, this is an original Russian import from a collection of cars of the Soviet era. Designed by AA Lipgart and NA Jushmanov and constructed in the Gorki car factory, the GAZ-12 was a large limousine-style Soviet car built between 1950 and 1959.
1:43 scale die-cast model. Due to their larger size and 6 passenger capability, the Gaz-12 was built for government officials and for use as taxis. An ambulance version was also produced until 1960. It used a 6 cylinder engine, with a top speed of 75mph and managed roughly 18 miles to the gallon.
This detailed 1:43 scale die cast model is of the ZIM version "Zavod Imeni Molotova" and is black with 'chromed silver' colour detail.
