No, a Russian Lada 4WD. Called a Lada Niva or Lada Cossack depending on where sold.

Constant 4WD and quite capable off-road.

They were called Lada Sport here. Light weight and constant 4wd made them very good in show etc.

The word 'quality' does however not come to mind when thinking about it. I'm told that the dealer replaced most of the electronics (without checking) before delivering them to a new buyer...

In what sense is it a copy of the Classic?

Coil springs and permanent four wheel drive are the only significant similarities.
I'd say these are outweighed by the fact that its a much smaller car with a little four cylinder engine and a monocoque shell.

I guess I dont, and never did see the similarity myself...
I knew a few guys with them when I had my old 2 door Range Rover, and never saw one thing that looked remotely similar. Besides the fact that they are permanent 4wd (like a LOT of other rigs and cars) and have coils (also like a LOT of other rigs and cars), what did they copy exactly? :think:
Cheap beaters that lasted as long as a bowl of cereal in my experience.....
