Description

Volga is an automobile brand that originated in the Soviet Union to replace the venerated GAZ Pobeda in 1956. Modern in design, it became a symbol of higher status in the Soviet nomenklatura. Volga cars were also traditionally used as taxi cabs, road police interceptors, and ambulances (based on the estate versions).

Four generations of Volga cars have been produced, each undergoing several updates during the production run.

From the second generation, the GAZ 13 was a car developed largely from the 1956 Packard Patrician and built since 1959, was continued alongside the new Chaika up until 1981, despite its obvious archaism. Very rarely is a model of car ever produced for such a lengthened period of time.

On appearance this is a well looked after Gaz 13 Chaika, finished in black with its original well-preserved interior with only 44,345 recorded miles, making it a very special example indeed. One can almost see the political VIP’s being luxuriously chauffeured around by this powerful 5.5litre V8 in the Soviet Union.
