Default A bit of an odd flathead

This visitor in shop is heading back to itīs owner today.
Was kind of an love and hate affair to fit the flathead in it...even if it was built that way in -37 years of "evolution" and no real solid documentation made it a trial and error job.

Very interesting. Several "inovations" to ponder.

Itīs a russian built -37...ford licensed whatever leftovers and tooling to russia.

First from model-A and later for this model.

That rear axle is built for battleground floating axle to spring mount and huge travel.

Only 600 was built with a flathead for the intelligence people if rumour is right.

I wondered if it might be a Gaz (sort of). My mate Henry in Holland (34Gaz) has something similar - (the clue is in the name).
