Back in Soviet days a problem was amongst in Russian village – they were lacking little jeeps that could help them move around (roads always were a pain). And the import cars were rare almost non existent thing. So the Soviet car production tried to come with little jeep that could help the Soviet fellows get around the country roads.

For this purpose back in sixties they have made this Moksvitch car. But it never got released and postponed for better times.

This how looked the car in sixties.  Then in seventies again they began to work on it.

And have made more modern car. They have made the Moskvitch parts (headlights, engines all of those) and have made a little SUV. They have called it Moskvitch 2150.

Engine had 70 horsepower and could use some shitty gas. It had also two gas tanks (just in case they puncture one moving on the country roads).81c2c030a6223b0d96773c4c11ae5864

Gearbox had just four gears. Steering wheel had no power steering.

Then, in Perestroika era they have tried reviving project, even though ten years passed it was still a normal car. But again it never happened, so just one car has survived.

    Anyone know the most famous car in the whole world?

    Its called (Chitty-Chitty Band-Bang), true story you can google

  2. Douglas says:

    Sad tale. Great little car for the people but never happened.

  3. dor says:

    glad it was not produced. what an eye sore

    • Danny Boy says:

      Disagree. It’s a utility vehicle, presumably a 4×4 (note the gearshifts). No more an eyesore than a Jeep CJ-5 or an older Land Rover (vehicles in a comparable niche). No idea if it would have been a good vehicle, but the external design is unremarkable.

  4. Douglas says:

    For a Soviet produced car, the design is very nice. Too bad it was not offered to the public..

  5. OldBikr says:

    I would drive it and I probably would like it a lot. It looks very practical for back-country driving.
