GAZ-69 is a four wheel drive light truck, produced by GAZ
(ГАЗ, or Gorkovsky Avtomobilnyi Zavod) between 1953 and 1955.
From 1954 until 1972 it was produced by UAZ, as UAZ-69,
though they were commonly known as GAZ-69s as well.
It 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 off-road van and light truck UAZ-450 and newer jeep UAZ-469.
