A Ukrainian turned the hunchbacked Zaporozhets into an original pickup truck (photo)

I am Ruby Schultz, a journalist and author with experience in the news industry. I have worked at several top-tier publications, such as The News Dept., where I primarily cover technology news. My work has been featured in prominent outlets like The New York Times and Wired Magazine. I am passionate about exploring new technologies and implementing them into my stories to ensure an engaging narrative that captures readers’ attention. I specialize in researching tech trends, conducting interviews with industry insiders, writing opinion pieces, editing copy for accuracy and clarity – all while staying abreast of the latest developments within this rapidly changing field. In addition to my journalistic pursuits, I also manage multiple successful blogs on topics such as robotics and artificial intelligence (AI).

Zaporozhets became front-engined and received an engine and transmission from Zhiguli. The truck is based on a homemade frame.

A non-standard cargo ZAZ-965 was found in the Ternopil region. A self-made Zaporozhets pickup truck is on sale for just $650. This is reported by the Carakaom website.

The car was made from improvised materials, and most of the parts were found by its creator in a landfill. In fact, from the ZAZ-965 only the front part of the body with doors, mounted on a homemade welded steel frame, remained. The cargo platform is equipped at the rear with a length of 2.2 m and a width of 1.5 m.

The layout of the pickup truck is not the same as that of Zaporozhets. The car became a front engine – an engine and a transmission from the old Zhiguli were installed in the trunk of the ZAZ-965. Oddly enough, the power unit fits in a tight space. I had the appearance of a radiator grille at the front for cooling.

VAZ also borrowed the rear axle and some other chassis parts. There are also spare parts for other cars – for example, rear-view mirrors were taken from an old UAZ.

The unusual ZAZ-965 pickup truck has no number – it was not possible to register it. For self-made cars, this is familiar, and this is partly due to the low cost of a pickup truck.

Previously Focus He reported that the Ukrainians began to produce original cars for the army. They are inexpensive, and also use VAZ units.
