This 5 seat, 4 door car is almost an exact copy of American 1930 Ford-A. Officially GAZ-A is the first serial passenger vehicle in the Soviet Union. In parallel with GAZ-A few pieces of 4-door, 6-light saloon GAZ-6 have been built. Also, Moscow plant "Aremkuz" built a few different hard-top modifications of bodies for GAZ-A. Take a look at these photos of GAZ-AAAA (32 KB [7], 34 KB [7], 67 KB [3]), which is a 3 axle modification of GAZ-A.
