1956 ZIL 114 specs
Although the rigid rear axle with leaf springs — out of date in the West — was retained, the ZIL-114 saw the replacement of drums by power-assisted disc brakes on all four wheels to cope with the hugely powerful engine. There was also even more luxurious appointments than found on previous ZIL models with such features as air conditioning added to already luxurious furnishings of the ZIL-111.
The 114 continued in limited production until the late 1970s when it was replaced by the even larger and heavier ZIL-4104, which continues more or less to the present.
The ZIL-117 was a short-chassis version with only five seats and a much shorter wheelbase. It was also available as an unusual four-door convertible (like the ZIL-111V)
