An old GAZ-53 parked in the Cordon mill

Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod-53 is a 3.5 ton 4x2 truck from GAZ. Powered by 120 hp V8 engine it was further development of the virtually identical 2.5 ton GAZ-52 with old 75 hp (56 kW) 6-cylinder engine from the GAZ-51 , and was produced until 1993.

These vehicles are not very common in Chernobyl, most probably because the ZIL-130 is more widespread in use. These trucks carry either a flatbed or tanker as load.
