ZIS-150 based ZIS-MMZ-585 was main dump truck of 1950s, judging on their amount. Their production was organized in Mytishchi, few kilometers from Moscow, on MMZ (Mytishchi Machine-building Plant (Zavod)). Before 1949 all cabins were made with wooden back and doors, what communicated them angular shape. This rare truck is on bottom picture, if you can make out anything on this small fragment. In 1957 base ZIS-150 model was substituted by ZIL-164, differed outwardly only by vertical grill bars and bumper. ZIL-585 has got the same features.
