GAZ-21 “Volga”, perhaps, the main object for replicas throughout the entire territory of the former USSR. Often, the objects of such alterations are prestigious German sedans from Mercedes-Benz and BMW, but there are also various exotics, for example, based on the Jaguar XJ.
This time he tried on the guise of the legendary sedan and the “American” – we present to your attention a replica of the “twenty-first” based on the Cadillac Deville from the mid-2000s.
On this homemade product it would be ideal to move somewhere in Brighton Beach – seeing such a car, emigrants will be nostalgic, and Americans will be puzzled what these damn Russians did with their American dream.
The Volgaville was built quite simply – all the front and rear body parts were removed from the base Cadillac and replaced with stylistically converted ones for gas decor and optics.
Actually, from the “Volga” itself there is a radiator grill, headlights, sidelights, taillights, a front bumper with fangs, a rear bumper (two of them were installed here). And, of course, where without nameplates – a deer on the hood and “birds” on the trunk lid.
As you can see, the details are enough for the layman to understand what this car is a replica of. In this case, they even did without the branded stampings on the rear doors, over which other enthusiasts would have racked their brains for a long time, trying to beautifully fit into the exterior.
But on this car there are chic spoke rims with hidden fasteners. Such a car will quite become a decoration in the garage and some lowrider from Los Angeles. However, there are enough Russians there too)
They did not touch anything inside either. No stylistic references to the Volga, just a typical American salon at the turn of the century: leather, automatic, wood, green illumination. They even left the Cadillac emblem on the steering wheel.
But with this replica there is no such fuss as with a real retro car. You can fill in ordinary gasoline, ordinary oil, do not inject, in the end, pins. And considering that under the hood there is a handsome V8 with a working volume of 4.8 liters, you can also accelerate to 200 km / h.
By the way, at the time of writing this article, this car was sold in Kiev at a price of 18 thousand dollars (1.2 million rubles). Mileage – 148 thousand kilometers (or miles?). All in all, not a bad option for nostalgic expats!
