Additional Information

This Russian made car was first "customer" vehicle into which SynLube™ Universal Oil was installed in Europe in fall of 1964.

The same lubricant was also used in the 4-speed manual transmission and in the differential.

The SynLube™ lubricants were installed at first oil change when all OEM oils were drained after initial 1,000 km break-in period.

The owner was famous German/Czech prima ballerina, who used the car for travel throughout Europe.

The car was operated for over 300,000 km (speedometer wore out at 264,000km).

The vehicle was scraped in 1975 because it could not pass safety inspection in Czechoslovakia where it was licensed, due to excessive body rust.
Due to lack of availability of spare parts it could not be fixed.
