Video: Dear Comrades: Soviet Cars In Perfect Condition
What do you think a Soviet car should look like at the end of 2020? Most likely, the imagination draws something rusty, with cracked windows and thick smoke from the exhaust pipe. In fact, this is not entirely true. Because even in 2020, there are Soviet cars that have retained their original appearance. Don't believe me? Catch a whole collection of examples!
In general, a surprisingly large number of persistent "Zaporozhtsev" were discovered in 2020, so one copy will not be limited here. We will tell you about the three most recent examples - all of them with an index of 968 and all - honest "capsules" (not restored). Finally, they are all for sale on Auto.ru at the time of this article's publication.
White 968 M with a mileage of 480 kilometers was found in Tula. This is the youngest car in this collection (formally not even Soviet, since it was released in 1992) and one of the most inexpensive - initially they wanted 200 thousand rubles for it, but now the price has dropped to 170 thousand.
"Zaporozhets" - in a modification for disabled people who have one leg damaged. The photographs show that in reality the car was almost never used, although time still left red marks on the body. Do you want a 968 in such a state that you can't pick on it? You are welcome! Here are two at once. 700 thousand for each.
A salesman from Moscow was stingy about the details in the announcement of the sale of an almost identical 1991 car, but there will be enough photos. No traces of exploitation and no doubts about the declared mileage. Although it is just incredibly small - only 79 kilometers in almost 30 years!
For the same money, an alternative option is offered: the "eared" ZAZ 968 A model of 1976 with a mileage of 2720 kilometers.
And, as you might have noticed, the last two Zaporozhets were not just photographed in one place. We have already visited this place and found out something interesting about them.
This and the following cars are also on sale at the time of this publication. Like the Cossacks, they did not recover and survived until 2020 in the most original form. The first copy is a beige 21013 with a 1.2-liter 64 hp engine, manufactured in 1982.
In the ad, the seller says that the four-door for 1.1 million rubles - "no run", was in a warm garage, and just in case, once again notes that she "did not go" (if suddenly someone did not understand what it means " no run "). And 70 kilometers on the odometer? Well, she had to somehow get to the garage!
Could a “kopeck” be even more expensive? Uh-huh! Here is a copy in a beautiful blue color with the same engine, but for … 15 million!
This car is 10 years older, although it almost did not know how to operate. The mileage since 1972 has been only 62 kilometers, and in photographs it looks like the mileage is twisted in the opposite direction. The description is also noteworthy - the seller says that the car belongs to the early release, with Fiat components and without seat belts. It was never registered, kept the factory seals and did not even undergo pre-sale preparation - before that it is authentic!
The next (and the last in our collection) "kopeck" was discovered by the blogger RomUrraco, on whose account dozens of "time capsules" were found. The 1982 four-door was stored in the garage almost all its life, and on the pads, and the mileage was only a little over a thousand kilometers. Even the native spare wheel remained intact, and artifacts were found in the cabin - like a pack of "Belomor" and a faceted glass.
Only with a history of an accident, the car was a little unlucky. The first owner at the time of purchase did not have a driver's license and sufficient experience, so he attached the wing to the garage door. The damaged element was repaired (although not by five points), and in 2020, when the “kopeck” came to life and went to the first car wash in many years, it was hit by a gaping driver - on the same wing!
