KIM-10 prototype with 2 doors and sticking out headlamps

Produced 1940-1941. At first KIM-10 was designed as 2 door car and was produced that way. In 1941 Stalin inspected the car and said that it should have 4 doors and that the headlihghts were too old fashioned. Engineers redesigned the car and updated model was named KIM-10-52 but finally only 2 cars were built.

Much later in 1945 KIM-10-50 was built. It had the original 2 door design but had updated headlamps from KIM-10-52. Only 10 unites were built. There is also cabriolet version named KIM-10-51 but only few were built.
