Very rare Special USSR KGB car (chaser) .
In 1960 year Soviet KGB (Committee for State Security), ordered from Gorkiy Automobile Plant to design a car to provide efficient pursuit, escorting and other special missions. The Customer (that is KGB) stipulated that the car must look exactly as usual "Volga" GAZ-21but more power.
Over the years of production (since 1962 till 1970) 603 GAZ-23 cars got out of the gates of the plant. Now we know only about 19 copies of surviving cars of varying degrees of configuration.
The most powerful and modern at the time GAZ-13 eight-cylinder engine with automatic transmission and with little adaptation to the Volga engine compartment was chosen as the power unit. The vehicle was intended to ensure effective pursuit, to escort the motorcades, and to perform other specials tasks of the state security service and was able to reach "a hundred" in just 16 seconds, its maximum speed was 170 km / h. This car with the chassis number 00071 was purchased in 1985 at a consignment store in Moscow, before that it had worked at a secret space enterprise in the Moscow Region city.
This car after a complete quality restoration, there are all the differences of Gas 23 . The car was recreated exactly in the form in which it left the Gorky Automobile Plant in 1962. Up to the last screw. Full original. Exhaust system and mufflers from polished stainless steel are made according to original drawings. Car history and more details on for request. Documents and body numbers are good. Two sets of tires (original and modern for everyday driving). The car is in Ukraine and can be exported to any country in the world.
There is no more iconic Soviet car than the famous Volga GAZ-21 - noble, elegant, with swift bold lines, luxurious chrome trim and a sacramental galloping deer on the hood of early-series cars. In almost all decisions Volga was a huge breakthrough for the Soviet automobile industry, giving its owners an unprecedented level of comfort and pleasure during their trips of the time.
It is not surprising because it was created with an eye to the best world models of those years and first of all in the spirit of overseas cars. That is why Volga was originally conceived as the first mass Soviet car with a hydraulic automatic transmission. And imagine, there really were Volgas with machine guns! There were only about 700 such cars produced.
