GAZ-69 is a four wheel drive light truck, produced by GAZ (ГАЗ, or Gorkovsky Avtomobilnyi Zavod, Gorky Automobile Factory) between 1953 and 1955. It replaced the GAZ 67.[1] From 1954 until 1972 it was produced by UAZ, as the UAZ-69, though they were commonly known as GAZ-69s as well. (GAZ production stopped in 1956).[2] In Russia, they were nicknamed Kozlov (goat).[3]

Designed by Grigoriy Vasserman beginning in 1953, it was powered by the same 55 hp (41 kW; 56 PS) 2.1 L (130 cu in) inline four and three-speed transmission as the GAZ M21 Pobeda.[4] This enabled the GAZ 69 to reach 56 mph (90 km/h).[5] It did not enter mass production until December 1964, due to protracted trials [6]

GAZ 69 was also available with a more powerful engine, with 2400cc (derived from the basic 2100cc), delivering 65 hp, with the same three-speed gearbox. This way, it was able to reach 100 km/h (62 mph). These versions were named GAZ 69M, or GAZ 69AM for the four-door version.

It featured two fuel tanks, one of 47 L (12 US gal; 10 imp gal) under the floor, one of 28 L (7 US gal; 6 imp gal) beneath the driver's seat.[7] All civilian models also had to meet Red Army requirements, in case of wartime requisitioning.[8] (This is also why a hardtop version was not avaiable until 1993.[9])

The GAZ 69 was also produced under licence by ARO in Romania, first as IMS-57, then as Muscel M59, later modernized as the Muscel M461. Many GAZ-69 trucks were used in Poland during the Cold War.

The basic variant GAZ-69 has a pair of doors only and most often appears with standard canvas top and upper sides. Further variant GAZ-69A (UAZ-69A) has two pair of doors. From the UAZ-69 there were developed a rear-wheel drive only van, the GAZ 19, which never passed the prototype stage. The off-road van and light truck UAZ-450 and newer UAZ-469 also traced their origins to the GAZ 69.

Over 600,000 GAZ 69s were built by the end of production in 1972.[10]

Military use[edit]

The GAZ-69 was the basic light off-road vehicle of the Soviet Army, replacing GAZ-67s and Willys Jeeps. The GAZ-69 was itself replaced with the UAZ-469.

It was also used as the basis for the 2P26 tank destroyer, as well as for the GAZ 46 MAV, a light 4x4 amphibious vehicle, whose design was largely copied from the World War II Ford GPA 'Seep'.

UAZ 469 byl vyvinutý v Sovětském svazu již koncem šedesátých let, jako nástupce populárního, ale již zastaralého terénního vozu GAZ 69, dobře známého i u nás. UAZ 469 musel projít náročným testováním, a tak se do výroby dostal až v roce 1972.
