To quickly manufacture a cheap armored car after the German invasion of the Soviet Union, an armored body was placed on the GAZ-64 jeep, creating the open-topped BA-64. While the BA-64 did not have particularly impressive specifications, it provided a cheap supplement to the earlier armored cars, such as the BA-10. As the improved version of the GAZ-64, the GAZ-67B became available, BA-64 production shifted to this chassis with an enclosed turret, under the designation BA-64B.
Production continued until 1946, with 9110 BA-64 and BA-64B and variants built. It continued in service until 1960.
