Thanks, Rich.
Well, here where I live summer is over and we are well into the rainy season, so I have no excuse.
What we have next is what appears to be a well camouflaged small pickup truck:

Hi Max,

this small pickup truck has the chassis of a mittlerer Einheits-PKW.

Best regards

Hi Max,

thank You very much. Here is my next question. Who can ID this truck used by an Italian radio cestion?

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Is it, perhaps, a Chevrolet CC60L, or even a 1543X2?
Cheers,
Kerry.

Hello Bert,

What can I say? A quiet Sunday morning.

Here is my photo, perhaps not too difficult, the one behind is also interesting, but it is the car I am looking for.

Kerry.

Hi Kerry,
It's a ZIS-101, probably ca. 1940

Hello Max,
That is close enough, it is, I believe, the improved ZIS101a. Clearly not the extremely rare 101, or 101a, Sport, but the limousine version. Here is a standard 101, a different front end.
Over to you Max, and thank you,
Kerry.

Aaaaaarrrghhhh. Never thought to look at ZIS. I was convinced it was American as I could see Cadillac/GM written all over it.

Good job Max.

Hi Kerry,
You're of course correct this is the 101a. I didn't realize the "old style"101 was sill in production when this model was introduced. That was a good question and a pretty rare pic of this car "in the wild" I should think.

Well here's the next question for you all:

Thanks Rich,
I also went straight to GM but the wheels just didn't look right. I guess it's understandable since back in the day Soviet automobile stylists had a habit of, shall we say, "paying homage" to their colleagues in Detroit. :wink:

Max
