In 1929 the first Ford AA trucks and Ford-A cars were built in Nizhny Novgorod, from parts shipped in from the USA. In parallel a new automobile plant began to grow and in 1932 was known as GAZ (Gorky Automobile Zavrod). In January of 1932 the first GAZ-AA truck (a copy of the Ford-AA) was produced in the new plant. In the beginning the cabs were simply made of wood. In 1938 a new model appeared, the GAZ-MM, outwardly the same as the GAZ-AA but mounting a new GAZ-M1 engine. Together with the ZIS-5, the GAZ-AA was the main truck in the first 2 years of the Red Armies campaign against the Wehrmacht in WW2, on 20th June 1941 over 151,100 GAZ-AA's were registered, despite being more than 10 years old, their simplicity and the ability to run on multi grade fuel and having to contend with only 2 types of truck was an distinct advantage. The GAZ-AA was used in a wide variety of rolls, besides the normal cargo variant, they were used for AA mounts of 25mm and Quadruple "maxim" machine guns, fuel trucks, Ambulances and Communication vehicles. So the GAZ-AA became a famous and respected vehicle in the Soviet Union, given the nickname Polutorka for its 1.5 tonne cargo capacity (poltora means one and a half).
