LADA 1200/1300

4-door 4-seater saloon, estate car.

Russian-produced version of Fiat 124, with unique overhead-camshaft engine, heavy-duty chassis, and more utilitarian furnishings. Rugged, simple, and very cheap, with 80/85mph flat out. 1300 sold in UK 1977-82, displaced by Riva. Conventional in every way except for country of origin, no classic character, and no long-term charm.
