A man was passing along a road and saw an abandoned GAZ-63 in a field. He pulled over to the roadside and took a walk to the truck to check it out. Then nostalgic memories filled his mind – his dad had same truck when he was a little boy. This GAZ was already covered with moss but the man started trying to contact the owner.
A few weeks later he returned and talked to locals and asked “Whose GAZ is this?” Later he found the owner and had an idea of making something to commemorate his feelings for his dad. He wanted to restore the truck into a good condition, because it would die here anyway if it stayed in the field any longer.
He took the GAZ-63 back to his yard and started to work on it, together with his son. They disassembled it to the smallest screw, repaired the cab of the truck, and repainted it. They got the engine work again and changed the wiring.
They removed the truck’s cargo hold and made it just an open platform.
The whole restoration process took the man and his son around 3 years.
He restored everything on it and now you can’t even compare it with the moss covered remains it was when it was discovered. Now he has a memory of his dad and also a cool truck to use.
