I know, I'm mad about this vehicle.
ZIL 130 is a Soviet truck developed in early 60s. The vehicle was produced from about 1964 till 1991 in Moscow, and the production is continued by now in UAMZ factory. ZIL 130 is a simple truck, powered by a 6-litre gasoline engine, which allows it to go around 90 kilometers per hour. As I know, there were made more than 3 million vehicles. Fortunately, lots of them are still in use - repainted, modified, equipped with diesel engines. The name "work horse" fits very well, as this truck was used for every kind of work - the trucks were built as tractors, garbage trucks, cranes, etc.
It's a model of a pre-1976 ZIL 130 (later models had different radiator grille). It has got working suspension (front one is independent) and the whole vehicle is powered by PF XL motor. The truck is fitted with a working gearbox (from 8448 set), unfortunately it's not automatic ;)
Here you can see some details of the vehicle. The hood, front grille and fuel tank.
And a small comparison with my previous model. The video is here. You can see how slow it is and now you will know that my musical taste is broken, too.
That's all. Please, comment it ;P
