To add to the list of stolen Cortinas and Land Rover Defenders, we have another stolen classic on our hands. Bizarrely this time, thieves have made off with something a little unusual.Rather than the expected old Fords or Land Rovers, the theft involves a ZAZ 965a. A what you ask? Think Soviet, built in Ukraine between 1962 and 1969.
This face-lifted Zaporozhets disappeared from Hertfordshire recently, and will no doubt stand out like a sore thumb in a nail clinic. The chances are that this Soviet people’s car could be heading back East, so be sure to be vigilant around dock areas.
Details are limited at this point in time, but anyone with information should contact the Police on 101. Keep your eyes peeled!
