GAZ » 66

Designed as the replacement of the GAZ-63 truck in a payload class of 2 tons. The vehicle is fitted with an eight-cylinder liquid-cooled carburetor engine. The vehicle has all single drive wheels. The tire size is 12.00-18". The transmission is eight-step without interaxle differential. The transmission gear ratio range is 14.7. The final drive is of a hypoid type. There are selflocking gearless cross-axle differentials. The vehicle's equipment includes a hydraulic steering wheel booster, a hydrovacuum booster in the brake drive and a windscreen washer.

The vehicle is of a cab-over-engine type and features a low gravity center with this giving the truck an enhanced stability, especially during turns. The truck was launched into serial manufacture in 1964. The first modifications of the vehicle were the GAZ-66-01, a high-sided truck without a winch, ahd the GAZ-66-02, a modification with a winch.

In 1968, all modifications of the truck began to be fitted with a centralized tire air pressure regulation system. The vehicle received more than once upgrade during its serial manufacture period with this having resulted in the GAZ-66-11 and GAZ-66-40 modifications. All truck variants were used in the Armed Forces under the designation GAZ-66.

In 1998, the Gorky motor vehicle plant stopped large-scale serial manufacture of the truck and began to produce it in small batches which had continued to be deployed with troops. In 1999, the production of the GAZ-66 was stopped. 965,941 vehicles were manufactured during that period. The vehicles of the latest manufacturing series had a multi-purpose cargo bed of a new design unitized with the GAZ-3309 commercial truck. The GAZ-66 was exported in large quantities.
