Prototyped in WW2 years, ZiS-110 continued line of 1942 Packard Super Eight, one of which was presented to Iosif
Vissarionovich Stalin by Franklin Delano Roosewelt in war times. ZiS-110 wasn't exact copy, many parts (even body ones)
weren't interchangeable since they differed in dimensions.
First serial batch of 5 limousines appeared in August 1945.
On 28 IV 1947 many new models of Soviet automobiles have been shown in Kremlin to Stalin, Molotov, Voznesenskii, Berija, Mikojan and Malenkov. Shown automobiles list: GAZ-M20 "Pobeda", Moskvich, Moskvich taxi with wooden body and Moskvich wooden postal van, ZiS-110 and ZiS-110 phaeton (shown here), ZIS-154.
Almost all limousines have been painted in black. Some were dark blue. Ambulances - white, phaetons - grey and black, taxi - black. This isn't strict list of paints, of course.
