GAZ-53 is a Soviet medium-duty truck of the third generation GAZ.
The GAZ-53 with the following modifications was the most mainstream truck on the territory of the former USSR. The total production of the GAZ-53 amounted to more than 4mln of cars.
The automobiles GAZ of 52/53 series had a modular cab. The instrument panel of the trucks GAZ-53F did not have an ampere-meter and an oil-pressure indicator. There were alarm lamps instead of them. The cabs of the first GAZ-53A were equipped with clocks. According to the radiator cowl there were three main types:
• A common idea of the designer decision for the first serial version of the cowl was concordant to the cowl of the ZIL-130: the main head lamps are at the top, the fender lamps are at the bottom. That type corresponded to both the GAZ-52-03 and the first GAZ-53F.
• Since 1965 the fender lamps were at the top over the main head lamps and the cowl was with “a smile”.
• In 1985 the last successive version of the cowl appeared — the apertures of the grille have extended and the fender lamps have moved each closer to its edge.
