    The ARO IMS-57 was produced in 1957, from the "-57" we can easily denote that fact. The manufacturing period took 2 years from 1957 until 1959, by that time around 2000 units were produced. It is considered that ARO IMS-57 was inspired from the Russian model GAZ. The first car bodies were build manually by Grigore Negoita si Gita Holbosan. In 1957, were produced 154 units. The next two year about 760 units. The exact number for 1958 year is not well known but assuming that in total there were made 2000 units, we can denote that around 1000 units were made for sure. The car was equipped with an engine that had lateral valves, a 4.6 compression ratio, a three-bearing crankshaft and a cast iron camshaft, leaf-sprung shock absorbers and manually operated windscreen wipers. The chassis, motor, mechanicals and gearbox of IMS 57 are practically identical with those of GAZ 69 as the car was initially inspired from that russian car model.
