Čeština: FSC Żuk - je dodávka vyráběná v polském Lublinu mezi lety 1959 a 1998 automobilkou FSC.
Polski: FSC Żuk - rodzina polskich samochodów dostawczych produkowana w FSC w Lublinie w latach 1959-1998. Opracowana w 1956 na bazie FSO Warszawy, miała wspólne z nim podwozie, silnik i układ jezdny.
English: FSC Żuk - was a light commercial vehicle produced in Lublin, Poland, by Lubelska Fabryka Samochodów Ciężarowych between 1959 and 1998. During it's production Żuk went through a number of modernizations and changes. The first major version was produced between 1959 and 1973. In 1973 the M version entered production. This version had a new larger driver's cabin with a completely new front. In 1975 the third major version, the B version, entered production. Externally the B version was initially identical to the M version however it marked the end of production of at least two Żuk variants: A-09 and A-05. Additionally as production of the B version continued the vehicle was modified. Around the time of the B version entering production Żuk received small rear bumpers near the corners of its rear door (this change did not influence the non van-like variants). It is unclear whether this change was applied before or after the M version was replaced with the B version. It thus can't be completely ruled out that some late examples of the M version also received those bumpers. At some point in the 1980s FSC Żuk vehicles began received rear fog lights. These are most easy to spot on the van-like variants. Also at some point during production of the B version FSC Żuk received side indicators. In 1990 FSC Żuk vehicles received a new front grill which differed from the old one by having two small openings above the headlights instead of a single large one.

FSC Żuk had a number of variants. Each variant's name included the capital letter A and two numbers written together: A-XXYY where the XX number specified the body type while the YY number specified the subvariant. The following variants are know to have been produced:

  • A-03 - the first variant to enter production. Commonly referred to as the pickup variant. This was a cargo variant with open-topped cargo area. The cargo area was a part of the main body work (unlike the cargo area in the later A-09, A-11 and A-16 variants).
  • A-05 - van variant. It entered production in 1966 and was the first serially produced van variant of FSC Żuk. Apart from the windows in the driver's cabin it had no side windows (although the side door sometimes had a window) and had a window in the rear door which was split in two parts with one opening upwards while the other opened downwards. Production of A-05 ended in 1975.
  • A-06 - van variant. The second van variant. It entered production at some point before 1973 (possibly in the 1960s). Externally it was identical to the A-05 variant.
    • A-062 - security van variant. It featured a secure separate compartment for transporting special cargo such as mail. It had a separate comportment for guards which had a window opposite the side door.
  • A-07 - cargo and personnel vehicle designed to be able to transport cargo or passengers depending on the current needs. It differed from the A-05 and A-06 variants by having three additional side windows (in addition to the window in the side door). The default variant had benches in the cargo/personnel area, a cargo divider in the back and a two piece rear door.
    • A-0701 - seats for three passengers facing forwards. No cargo divider in the back. Single piece rear door.

It also had mounting points for a ladder and emergency vehicle lighting on the roof, two side doors which led to a single bench for two crew members, a space for storing fire hoses and a water pump in the back.
