In 1943 this truck received ZIS-16 engine instead of engine of ZIS-5. Index 42M means ZIS-16 engine.
In 1944 ZiS-43 prototype, 37-mm anti-aircraft automatical gun on ZiS-42 base, has been built on GAZ.
ZIS-42 was not too good as it was expected, - it went without problems only through snowfield and swamp. That is why there wasn't any more attempts to combine wheels and tracks after ZIS-42 and GAZ-60 in Soviet Union and seems in Germany (Opel-Blitz maultier) too.
Perhaps the last ZIS-42 was still serving for one of factories in 1961 in Kameshkovo district of Vladimir region.
If you know anything of spare parts for this truck (or may be whole one?!) please let us know.
