I believe that this early example of such boards are what you refer to Bruce...
I'm not too sure this practice went into the 50s/60s. However, there exists no doubt that I could be incorrect.
Vadim is pretty keen on these small details. Let us see if he reads this and has some input...

My vehicle is a Gaz69A which was produced in Ulyanovsk between 1953 and 1972 and it is the successor (if not the evolution) of the Gaz67B with which many of you would be familiar.
Now my vehicle bears the East German insignia 99% of the time, but there are occasions when I might need/want to swap them with Soviet ones and that's why I am piecing together a uniform to match.
Thank you again for your help.
