This car is a part of «KAMYSHMASH» collection, which is the biggest private collection of antique cars in Russia (officially registered by Russian book of records).
The car was bought at an Ebay auction in February 2011 in Seattle, USA, Washington. Imported to Russia in September 2011. In January 2013, the restoration began, the car was dismantled and deconstructed, and in October 2015 the work completed.
Restoration lasted almost 3 years. A full cycle of restoration works was carried out. Bumpers, moldings, radiator lining and other decorative elements of the body were re-chrome plated.
The body was seriously damaged by corrosion, but all elements were repaired or replaced with new. There is a detailed photo report of all stages of the restoration. The car is painted in gold from the manufacturer's palette corresponding to the 1973 model year.
Interior decoration is combined of beige leather and brown carpet.
