1988 Lada Niva

An old Lada seems to fit in hipster Brooklyn, doesn’t it? Too bad it’ll never get used as it should unless it gets out of the city.

For those not raised onĀ Top Gear, the Lada Niva is a Soviet hatchback with extra ground clearance, and a 4-wheel drive system. The Niva is famously rugged and capable – it became a reasonably successful vehicle even outside the Eastern Bloc countries precisely because it could go just about anywhere.

This one looks to be in excellent condition, though there is a bit of corrosion on the bumpers. The seats don’t look like they’ve ever hosted a human behind. We love it.

It’s on eBay in Brooklyn for $11k or offer.1988 Lada Niva red front quarter 1988 Lada Niva red rear quarter 1988 Lada Niva interior
