Zaporozhets (ZAZ) was a series of rear-wheel-drive cars produced by ZAZ (Zaporozhsky Avtomobilny Zavod) factory in Ukraine. Different models of Zaporozhets, all of which had an air-cooled engine in the rear, were produced until 1994.

Zaporozhets was in high demand both in cities and in villages. Zaporozhets is known for its remarkable performance on poor roads due to its independent suspension and engine sitting on top of driving wheels, which makes them carry 60% of total car's weight. Another interesting feature of Zaporozhets is an absolutely flat even undercarriage. This way it is almost impossible to break something when going off the paved road. If one still managed to get stuck somewhere, ZAZ 965's curb weight of only 665 kg (1466 lbs) made it easy to literally get out of the car, lift it, put back on a steady surface and continue the journey.

The first car that drove off the ZAZ factory gates in 1960 was ZAZ 965 - exactly like the one we have for sale. It is powered by a MeMZ 965 air-cooled OHV 746 cc V4 engine, producing 23 HP and capable of doing just about 80 km/h. Just like Volkswagen Beetle or Trabant in Europe, Zaporozhets was destined to become a "people's car" in the Soviet Union. It was indeed the most affordable vehicle in USSR, yet it did not become as common on USSR roads, as Trabant in East Germany. The problem was - ZAZ factory could not produce enough cars to satisfy the ever-growing demand, and people were waiting for their Zaporozhets for months.

ZAZ 965 became the first vehicle for many Soviet people. Amazing how these small cars were driven all over the USSR. People could drive these cars for thousands of kilometers to the seaside in the summer. There was lack of car repair stations in the USSR and drivers had to rely on themselves servicing their cars, especially on such long hauls. ZAZ vehicles (and this 965 is no exception) are easy to service. Its basic design and easily accessible compartments contribute to that.

When production of ZAZ 965 ended in 1969, only 322,116 of them were built. Out of this really small amount, only a few survived. Nowadays original ZAZ 965 is truly a rare find even in Europe.

We are happy to offer you this ZAZ 965 - tiny and cute from outside, yet a real go-getter by nature.
