THE FASTEST ZIL 130 ??? Up to 100 in total for ...
ZIL-130 is one of the most popular Soviet trucks. A total of 3 million 380 thousand of such machines were produced before 1994. In 1995, production was transferred to the ZIL branch - the Ural Automobile Plant, where the model became known as the UamZ-43140 and the cab and hood of the all-wheel-drive ZIL-131 (6x6) car, which has been produced at this enterprise since 1990, was installed on it. In addition, ZIL-130 trucks were manufactured under license in China.
It should be recognized that the ZIL-130 was quite a modern car for those years. It was distinguished from its predecessor by a number of advantages - an increased carrying capacity, a powerful engine for that time, a “solid” appearance, characterized by a wide hood, convex wings and a spacious cabin with a panoramic windshield.
The most significant upgrades of the ZIL-130 were made in 1966 (ZIL-130-66) and 1977 (ZIL-130-76). On the basis of the "130th" produced on-board cars, vans, construction and agricultural dump trucks, tank trucks, cranes, fire engines, etc. Until 1986, there were 35 versions of this truck with different bodies and equipment, differing wheelbase, drive type, climate performance and equipment.
ZIL-130 became the first truck of the Plant. Likhachev, who began to regularly paint in civil colors: white and blue; before that, all the trucks of this manufacturer were painted in “military” green.
The car body was a wooden platform with metal transverse bars of the base, with folding rear and side boards. Provided for the installation of the extension boards and the awning with the frame. Triple cabin located behind the engine. The driver's seat was adjusted in length, height and backrest tilt.
The load capacity of the cars of the first years of production was 4 tons, but since they had a large margin of safety, then in 1965 it was increased to 5 tons, and in 1977 they began to release a modernized model - ZIL-130-76, which had a carrying capacity of 6 tons and capable of towing trailer with a permissible weight of 8 tons with a dead weight of 4300 kg. The “76th” was also different in appearance: it had a changed radiator grille and lower headlights.
