Red-yellow tank truck is property of GK "Mosgortrans". Picture of early platform has been sent by Alexander Andryushin.
21k ZIL-150 fire tank carries already ZIL white letters on the grille, so this is 1956 or 1957 truck.
In 1947 ZIS-150 substituted ZIS-5 on assembly line. ZIS-150 together with GAZ-51 was main truck of 1950s, judging on their amount. Before 1948 all cabins were made with wooden back and doors, what communicated them angular shape. In 1957 base ZIS-150 model was substituted by ZIL-164, differed outwardly only by vertical grille bars and bumper.
ZiS-150 was also manufactured in Brasov, Romania in 1955-1965 under "Steagul Rosu" (Red Flag) label (86k b/w photo). The nose is almost the same with ZIS 150 and the wooden cab (69k b/w photo). The rest of technical data-like ZIS 150. 54224 of these trucks were manufactured. Thanks for information to Florian Soava and Dorin from Bucharest.
China produced very exact copy of this truck too.
