The serial production of the first mass Soviet car was organized in
Nizhny Novgorod in late 1932. The car was a replica of the US
Ford-A Standart Phaeton 35B and looks different from it in lack of cowl lights,
another logo and a different form of the front coat.
The car was equipped with the GAZ-A engine at power of 40 hp, which allowed
it to reach the speed of 95 km / h. The model "A" was delivered not only to
the civil enterprices and institutions but to Red Army too. The Red Army had
2757 model "A" cars at the begining of 1941.
There were issued 41387 model "A" cars for the period from 1932 to 1936.
