The Gaz 21 was known to be the first Soviet full-size sedan and a prestigious vehicle only exclusive to the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Republic), before the export model 21P was introduced.

Finished in a white cream that sets beautifully over the chrome inserts fitted to the front and rear, this examples paintwork is in great overall condition. This 4-door family sedan features all the necessary cosmetic and mechanical upgrades among the third stage release of the Gaz 21.

The interior components are fitted with all the original dials and instrumentation and appear in excellent condition for their age. Featuring a new floor design, the Grey carpet is set over a two-tone grey trim, only showing minimal wear.

As the face of one of the most economical vehicles at the time, its 2.4L 4-cylinder engine was offered in petrol or diesel. This petrol example was paired to a 3-speed manual transmission, offering a smooth and memorable driving experience. With under 10,00KM against the odometer, this car presents original.

The Gaz 21P was known as the transition model between the M21 series and the new Gaz 24. The production of these ran exclusively between 1965-1970, consisting of multiple variants, stemmed off the 21P release. Further to the release of the P series, the indexes of all the secondary models were changed to focus the production to different markets and professions that resulted to the release of the Gaz 21TC (for Taxi), the Gaz 21H (right hand drive release) and the 21?? (southern export model). In final production of these, the export model to countries with left hand traffic remained the 21P with a base model being the 21R (stage III release). The lettered plate on these, now determines the rarity.

Featuring an exterior build based off the predecessor, the M21L, it replaced the use of vertical chrome plated fittings and instead, offered a wide arched ridge with a horizontal rib, that curved from the sides to the wheels. The newly designed chrome wear trim also featured an improved full-length chrome strip down each way of the side of the vehicle, making the car visually lower and longer. The redesign saw the frontal indicators customised as well as the radiator grill revamped.
