It appears the truck may have fallen through the ice on frozen lake.

Yep, most of these GAZ trucks were fitted with B blocks from the mid-1930s onwards although A blocks kept on being made and fitted. The B block trucks are referred to as GAZ-MM.

I think I may have one of these blocks. It was imported by Joe Mac that owned Ford Parts Obsolete in the sixties. Do you know of any differences?

The very sad thing about this truck is that when it went down, they did not make it.

RIP.

Wow, that is an impressive restoration they did on that GAZ MM.

Looks like they even found parts of one of the soldiers too: If only he could talk! Yes, RIP.

According to the license plate on the front, it states "GAZ-MM truck. It was built in July 1941. During the liberation of Novgorod, January 19, 1944, it went under the ice of the Kopka River. It was raised from the river bed on August 15, 2014. Restored by restorers of the Novgorod Museum-Reserve and the team of OAO "261 Repair Plant" on April 6,2015."

After doing research they believe they know the exact date and names of the two people that went down in the truck. One was a woman. Imagine the terror of their last moments.

Don't know; but if they had known what they were going to find it may have been better to leave the truck where it was as war grave.

It's a dangerous game driving a truck on ice...if you don't jump away immediately or there's no-one nearby to help you, falling into freezing water in heavy clothes you're in big trouble. If at night even worse. It explains the open door policy the of drivers.

Can someone help me (correct me if I'm wrong). When you look at the parts break down, and maybe the one picture. Is there an oil filter on the GAZ B motors? Look on the side cover behind the carburetor.
Thanks
