Founded as a company to cast cannons in Kragujevac (Serbia) in 1853, by 1904 it was repairing automobiles and manufacturing certain parts. Assembly of Chevrolet trucks started in 1939, but was interrupted by the Second World War. After the war, and now part of Communist Yugoslavia, the plant was given the name 'Zavodi Crvena Zastava' (Red Flag Factories) and in 1953 employees decided they wanted to produce automobiles. In 1954 an agreement was signed with Fiat and three models went into production. But Zastava really made its name with the Zastava 750, a Yugoslavian version of the Fiat 600 from 1962 to 1985; almost 1-million produced. Zastava also produced the Fiat 1300 and 1500 models and later created the Polski Fiat 125P which used the chassis of the Fiat 1500 with the mechanics of the Fiat 125 and was exported in kit form to Poland. From the early 1980s Zastava begins to use the name 'Yugo' for its cars.
