LENREZERV WW2 vehicles collection.
« on: March 04, 2021, 06:57:17 AM »
Started as a private collection, 'Lenrezerv' now has grown to become a museum, patriotic and historic club and school and others.
Unfortunately by some reasons it has no museum status yet and is open to visitors just twice a year or by preliminary agreement for schools and other organized groups, and that's not easy.
The exposition is located in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, and I hope you will enjoy with some my photos made there in year 2018.

001, 002: Krupp 'Protze' L2H143, this one was probably used byEstonian army right before WW2.
003, 004: 1941 Packard 180. These cars were used as styling inspiration for soviet ZIS-110 limousines.
005, 009: ~1938 Packard.
006, 007, 008: 1937-39 Opel Admiral Gläser cabriolet.

016: GAZ-64, first soviet 'jeep', only 672 made. Replica built using original parts such as frame and axles.
017: Unusual GAZ-64 front suspension with four quarter-elliptic leaf springs.
018, 019, 020: ZIS-42 half-track artillery tractor. Using the only available then engine ( ZIS-5, 73-76 BHP) proved itself slow and underpowered but was used widely enough, 6372 were built.

Yes please, Love to see more WW2 items. Also Soviet Bloc cars, especially anything relating to Zis, Zil, Zim, Chaika, Tatra, and similar cars. I'm also searching for information relating to the design and creation of the 1946-1958 Zis 110, and the comparison to the 1942 Packard 180 limo.
