Three communist-era images from our collection featuring the once common but now rarely seen ŻUK trucks. In excess of half a million Zuk’s were produced between 1958 and 1998 by the FSC (Fabryka Samochodów Ciężarowych) motor factory in Lublin. The same factory also made Nysa and Lublin vans and Honker military vehicles.
Did you know: the Polish word ‘ŻUK’ means ‘BEETLE’ in English.
This is the 500th post on the Polish Poland website since our switch to this format in 2009!
