Lada Niva 1.7
Yugo Koral 45
There are plenty of both of these.
The truck was for fun.
I've been searching for some of those custom fit seat covers for my Yugo. Have you seen any available in Germany? I checked Ebay.de but haven't turned up anything yet. They may only be available in the former Yugoslav republic countries.
I am currently in Bosnia and Hercegovina, former Yugoslavia. I will look in the two little auto shops in town today and let you know.
Thanks. Anything in grey or grey/black in spacer mesh material or some kind of fabric would be cool. Oh mine is an 87 model.
Zastava 750, known as Fičo (pronounced Ficho). They are available and are diven as daily drivers by some.
If it says Zastava right on there, and is license-built from FIAT/SEAT, why are they calling it "Ficho"? Does it translate to the 750 nomenclature?
It is just a nickname which stuck and is understood here to mean this car. Maybe because of the Fiat original license but no one I asked could tell anything other than a cute nickname.
Check this one out. Looks like a Lada Niva 1600 that is a hard worker. Keep looking and find out it is now a tractor.
Here is a Zastava 101, never saw a Yugo with this body in the USA.
They never sold that model nor the Florida in the US.
That model is also known as a Skala. A hatchback version of the Fiat 128. But I don't think the original Fiat 128 ever came in a four door hatchback version. I believe that was a modification made by Zastava to the 128 clone. Fiat discontinued this model in the mid 70s. Zastava kept building it up until a few years ago.
The Yugo GV (USA), known in Europe as the Koral or Yugo 55 (1.1 SOHC) or Yugo 45 (903 pushrod) also shares the 128 platform. About all mechanical and electrical parts are interchangable as well as door handles and other hardware.
The Yugo was Zastava's "original" bodied car even though it was based on the old 128. That model was built up until 2009.
The new Fiat 500L (four door version) that Fiat is going to send to the USA is supposed to be built in the old Yugo factory. So in one way we will be getting Yugos once again!
That is some great stuff. interesting. I looked in the two auto parts places here and only one had some seat covers but they are the same thing, Made in China, that we can get at home in Biglots. Sorry about that.
Thanks for looking. I will check with a fellow Yugo guy in Croatia and see if he can find me some.
He might have more luck, especially if he is a fan and has some connections. The places I had available to look in were weak at best for anything other than general maintainance bit and pieces. Are they ever for sale online? Is there a Yugo club? Had to ask.
According to this page it translates to "Little Fiat" in Serbian.
That is a cool link and interesting way they put it together. The thing on the Trabant is okay too.
I saw some daily drivers in 2008 while in Bosnia too. Here they are (well, one isn't driving any more here).
The red one is classic scene in Sarajevo. the traffic was too heavy for me to get out and help push, besides, I was driving when I took these. The white one was a construction worker's car. He was doing some work at the new Mosque in Jablanica. The last one is a Fic'o up in the mountains near Glogos<nica.
