Stalin preparing to parade (PICs)


Joseph Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili Stalin (1878-1953) was a Soviet revolutionary and politician of Georgian ethnicity. He ruled the Soviet Union from the mid–1920s until his death in 1953.

So similar to the 1938-1942 Packard 180 that stories abound of stamping dies being shipped to Russia, this ZIS 110 limousine was an early version of a purely Russian-produced ZIS (later ZIL) car that trickled out of its plant for several years in the 1940's and 1950's. This one was used by Stalin in the late 1940s and is described as "prueba de Balas" or "bulletproof."
