    Default GAZ-67B Wanted

    I am in the market for a restorable GAZ-67B. I am looking for one which is close to driveable but needing work. It will have to be able to be imported into Australia so needs to be clean, not covered in mud etc.

    Thanks Rick.

    to buy Gaz 67b is not a bad idea
    as you know already
    ..original ww2 67 are very rare ..i suppose "war time 67 s" 95 % of them have later made ww2 time id

    post war 67 b are not very rare
    but crated barn finds donīt exist if you want quick & easy project
    you have to remember that the 67bs are well used and field repaired several times over the years by previous owners

    the car body is simple and quite easy to repair
    ..nearly all the sheet metal are available except the bonnet, firewall and the front grille
    those repro parts are high quality cnc cut and they have all holes ready
    Gaz tech is Fords from the twenties so thatīs no problem
    dash fuel tank is a problem.. at the moment i havenīt heard about russian repros
    many of them have been out of use and modified (glove compartment !)

    the frame may looks good from outside but probably have nasty corrosion
    problems inside the boxed c-rails
    ....also likely have cracks here and there and could be dangerously weak after 60+ years of heavy use, backyard storage + mud & moisture
    the frame is not so good design against corrosion (my opinnion) because both rails are encased ...two 3 mm thick nested c rails welded together
    also they have quite a many factory stamped (big) holes and some rivets may be corroded badly , if is not dismantled and the boxed rails opened and the insidesand blasted etc
    .... and the frame may have been bent if it is not reinforced by the army work shops in the fifties
    thatīs why they are usually "modified" , angle iron welded and repaired several times


    ...but donīt give up !

    Hi Pekka, The search is over. I now have a 1949 GAZ 67B which needs a lot of work and things like the correct wheels, windscreen and fuel tank. The body has been altered but won't be too big a job to bring back I hope. For some reason the grill has been moved forward about 75/80mm as well.

    Any contacts in Europe or Russia will be welcome.


    Regards Rick.

    hi Rick
    not bad
    no worries
    It seems that "67" is in a typical well-used condition with all kinds of civilian modifications ;-)
    Check the frame carefully .. I wrote in the past, there may be quite a few cracks

    pekka

    examples of my frame:

    (frame upside down)
    behind the left front leaf spring bracket thereīs a weak point
    reinforcement flat bar..... army/ factory upgrade?



    cracks ...left front shock absorber bracket ( holes for the old and later mod absorbers)


    cracks ...rear leaf spring bracket

    left front rear leaf spring bracket ...... heavy corrosion inside thatīs why i have dismantled the frame
    not catastrophic but observe
    weak bending point behind the bracket

    What became of Bill W's GAZ 67 ? It had been captured in Korea and it ended up at Hughes yard at Coburg in the 1960's, it dissapeared then re-appeared and was advertised one Saturday morning in the AGE classifieds used cars. Bill was first out of the blocks and bought it, around late 1970's. It was regularly driven out for the ANZAC day march.
