Moscow Automotive Society (ZiL) introduced the ZiL 164 at the end of 1957 when an earlier produced truck model called the ZiS 150 had reached the fag end of its production life.
By using special alloyed cylinder heads, efficient braking system and installation of a special pre-heater that could allow the truck to start even in sub-zero temperatures, the ZiL 164 immediately attracted the purchasing committee of several states. These were then purchased by various firms and municipalities.
In 1961 a more powerful engine was given along with a new injection pump and gearbox, this model was then renamed as ZiL 164A. This particular model became so popular that they were used as late as until the 1990s. Several of them were converted into Snow Plow for scraping and removing snow from main streets and highways in then U.S.S.R.
This resin model is an exact rendition of the same and is highly detailed including the snow roll brush that is placed below the carriage.
