1980 Lada Niva - Posted Here 2 1/2 Years Ago, It's Back...

I posted this car on March 11, 2009. (You can see the post here.)

This was the first Niva I posted and I received a ton of email about it. Until then, I had no idea these vehicles had so many fans in the US.

Tonight I received an email from a friend of the person who bought it back in 2009... "Hi. My friend purchased the Lada Niva you had on your site back in 2009. Just wanted to let you know we have had to (sadly) put it back up on ebay, just in time for Christmas."

This Niva has a 1981 Fiat Spider DOHC 4 cylinder with Bosch fuel injection. It has a 5 speed ZF transmission. Both the engine and the transmission have been rebuilt.

The seller states that it also has a rebuilt clutch, radiator, steering box, front/rear driveshafts and brake system. It also has new CV joints (both inners and outers) and ball joints. The tires are also new.

The body could use a little attention, but all-in-all this is a very nice Niva. The past two owners have been fans / enthusiasts. Let's hope it finds a home with another one.

Located in Petaluma, CA, click here to see the eBay listing.
