GAZ-61 was a four wheel drive car from USSR manufacturer GAZ first introduced in 1938 by designer V. A. Gratchev, to replace his too-complex model GAZ-M21. Production did not start until 1940. It was made by putting the GAZ M2 body on a four-wheel-drive chassis (the world's first all-wheel drive passenger car). It could climb angles up to 38 degrees and cross water up to 72 cm (28 in) deep.
