Homemade tuning of the Volga. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it myself
The term "firewood" for this car can be safely used in the literal sense. To understand why, we need to look inside. Indeed, the owner had too much time and enough skill to do this.
I think that there is less natural wood in Aurus and Rolls Royce than in this old Volga, which was brought to the trade-in of the Tekhinkom UAZ car dealership at the 14th kilometer to be exchanged for UAZ. By the way, this Volga can be bought there for mere pennies.
Almost everything here is made of natural wood. It should be noted that the carpentry skills of the owner were enough to make not just wood parts, but wood parts corresponding to the body.
See how well all the parts fit together and are finished. I can’t even imagine how much I would cut out a map of just one door.
Torpedo — a separate song. Everything is not so perfect here, but still on the level. Here is that funny lever with a “pimpochka" – this is the control of the wipers, the stroke of the lever is greater than the stroke of the turn signal lever.
Center console with one unoccupied hole. Perhaps there was a radio station that was removed or a retractable LCD screen. Knowing the former owner’s love for screens. I’ll show you what I’m talking about a little later.
The upper part of the center console is not just like that – under it is a real and rather voluminous glove compartment. Moreover, the owner handed over the car so hastily that he left some splitters and wires. So I wanted a new UAZ.
The coolest thing is that all the parts fit together and… hold me seven… looks pretty intricate. Elon Musk shuddered nervously, and fans of eco-friendly interiors swallowed saliva.
The armrest with drawer and power window control, as you might guess, is also made of wood.
The paddle shifters are borrowed from KamAZ, if my memory serves me right. What cars still had such “pokers”?
But that’s not all… look at the sun visors. You definitely haven’t seen this before. They are also made of wood!
But that’s not all. Remember I said about the love of screens!? So, a wooden panel descends from under the roof, on which the LCD screen is attached. A DVD signal could be transmitted to it. Maybe it’s missing from the panel.
Even a “sports” steering wheel with nickel-plated spokes in this wooden interior does not look alien, but some kind of old school, yachting style or a reference to the era of wood and steel in the automotive industry.
In the trunk HBO, a spare fuel pump and a brand new spare wheel. Considering that the car is from 1975, it has been preserved quite well. At the same time, he clearly traveled, and did not stand in one place.
The car starts and drives – I personally saw it. He arrived on his own, and those who want to get hold of such a “monster” for a penny can contact the UAZ Tekhinkom at the 14th kilometer of the Moscow Ring Road and buy it out.
I never tire of admiring handy people. It’s a pity if the car goes under pressure. It would be better to go to the museum of needlework or even drive along the roads.
