This 1991 Lada Niva is a rare and unique vehicle with a fascinating history. It was originally used by the Former Russian Ambassador to Spain, where it spent years with the diplomatic family. It then returned to Russia, where it spent time with a military officer before being forgotten in a barn.

Recently, a fantastic team of Soviet automobile enthusiasts dug out the Niva and restored it to its former glory. Months of hard work and dedication went into the restoration, with many of the original parts being reused after thorough cleaning and rebuilding.

The result is a truly one-of-a-kind Lada Niva that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. This Niva is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, and it is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.

If you are looking for a unique and special vehicle with a fascinating history, this Lada Niva is the perfect choice for you.

The Lada Niva is a legendary SUV that has been in production since 1977. It is known for its ruggedness, simplicity, and off-road capabilities. The Niva was developed to meet the needs of the Soviet Union, where it was required to be able to handle the harshest terrain and conditions.

The Niva is powered by a simple yet rugged 1.6L overhead cam 4-cylinder engine. It has a permanent 4-wheel-drive system with high/low ranges and a locking differential. The Niva also has tall, narrow tires and wheels, and its famous, fully independent front suspension.

The Niva is the first unibody SUV ever produced. It is also the only Soviet vehicle ever to be imported to Japan, where it directly inspired the Suzuki Samurai. The Niva has fulfilled nearly every imaginable role: from a civilian car to an ambulance, a fire truck, an army vehicle, and a tractor. It is the first wheeled vehicle to spend more than 10 years in the Antarctic and has climbed to Mount Everest base camps.

The Niva is a truly unique and remarkable vehicle. It is a testament to its design and engineering that it has remained in production for over 40 years and is still popular with off-road enthusiasts around the world.

This 1991 Lada Niva is in absolutely stunning condition, both inside and out. The exterior is rugged and tough, with some great accessories that complement its 4x4 nature. The interior is equally fantastic, with all panels, seats, and consoles in excellent condition. There is minimal to no wear shown on any of the surfaces. The controls, switches, and dials all work just as designed.

This Niva is equipped with a rare 5-speed transmission, which engages and works beautifully. Shifts are smooth and engagement is sharp and responsive. The 4x4 mechanisms also work great, with an authoritative engagement into both 4 high and 4 low gearings.

This Niva is the perfect vehicle for both car shows and off-road adventures. It is something special with a one-of-a-kind history. Be sure to check out the detailed video to learn more about the condition and features of this amazing vehicle.
