Presenting in a two-tone yellow, this Gaz M69 showcases a well-maintained example. With a matching interior to its exterior, all in good condition, it features a soft-top roof as well as being fitted with a roll cage in the rear at time of production. The innovative design of the Gaz M69 is a true reflection to how practical these were designed and testament to their given nickname “Goat” being durable enough for climbing mountains.

With origin out of Ulyanovsk, Russia, this 'Casiolcek' was found in a barrack of the Eastern German Army, near Torgua. This example carried radio equipment and was well preserved from new.

The Gaz M69 Multipurpose 4WD release was considered the most powerful among the 69's. With a 4-cylinder 2.5L inline engine pulled through a 3-speed manual gearbox and a 2-speed transfer box, this example offered both power and economy on fuel. This short-wheel based 4x4 offers a more practical lifestyle.

Accompanying this vehicle, is a spare parts catalogue, paperwork of the vehicle's history to include it being fitted with a QLD modification plate in 2004 and a spare key for the vehicle.

The Gaz 69 was produced as a 4WD light truck between the years of 1953-1956 then by UAZ between the years of 1956-1972. As the successor of the Gaz 67B, it offered to be more fuel economical at production. With a History for military use in the Soviet army, these vehicles were able to replace the Gaz 67's as well as the 'Willy's Jeep'. These were also used as the base for the '2P26 Tank Destroyer' as well for the 'GAZ 46 MAV', known as the light 4x4 amphibious vehicle.

Its successful production saw over 630,000 M69 examples manufactured, where production ran in Russia, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and China. The two-tone yellow paintwork was used in Czechoslovakia during the production era and were often a trademark of the Romanian clone of the Gaz M69.
