1960 Other Makes VOLGA GAZ-21

TheGAZ M21 Volgais anautomobilewhich was produced in theSoviet UnionbyGAZ("Gorkovsky Avtomobilniy Zavod", in English: "Gorky automobile factory") from 1956 to 1970. The first car to carry theVolganame, it was developed in the early 1950s. Volgas were built with highground clearance(which gives it a specific "high" look, contrary to "low-long-sleek" look of Western cars of similar design), ruggedsuspension, strong and forgiving engine, andrustproofingon a scale unheard of in the 1950s.

The Volga was stylistically in line with the major American manufacturers of the period in which it was introduced, and incorporated such then-luxury features as the reclining front seat, cigarette lighter, heater, windshield washer and 3-wave radio.

When in 1959 the 6-cylinder line of GAZ cars was discontinued, Volga M-21 became the biggest and most luxurious car officially sold to individual owners in the USSR in large quantities, though its price was very high and made it unavailable for most car buyers. 639,478 cars were produced in total.
