Foundation date[edit]

The official website mentions that the automobile section within the factory was inaugurated in 1904. It says that they made repeairs and manufacture of car parts, and that in 1939 they begin anssembling Chevrolet military trucks, making 400 units until the production was interrupted because of the begining of the Second World War in Yugoslavia in 1941.

Another source (not sure if this one is also the official website) clearly says that after making trucks during the 1930s and that "Zastava will turn toward car production in 1949, when construction of its automobile manufacturing plant begins."

So, we have that the factory exists since 1853, and that the automobile section was formed in 1904, it produced trucks even during the 1930s, and that they turned into car production in 1949. So, why is 1953 considered the foundation date? FkpCascais (talk) 03:59, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
