Passenger “shishiga”: do you know who drove them?

Berezovsky repair plant in the Krasnoyarsk Territory in the early 90s produced vans and shuttle buses on the chassis of GAZ and ZIL trucks.

So, from the “shishiga” GAZ-66 turned out to be a 19-seater shift bus “Selyanka” – such a smooth asphalt is not necessary. The most important thing is to hold on tightly to the handrails.

On the basis of the machines of the Gorky Automobile Plant, various all-terrain vehicles were produced and are still being produced: caterpillar tracks, low-pressure tires, as well as many homemade products based on the famous GAZ-66 – the most huge four-wheel drive two-axle truck of the Soviet army.

Mikhail Kolodochkin has been collecting unusual facts from the history of technology for many years. For example, did you know that the predecessor of that same “shishiga” was an eight-wheeled all-terrain vehicle?
