Produced 1970-1990. It also may be named ZAZ-969 because at first thats what it was designed to be. But actual production only took place in LuAZ factory so its really LuAZ-969. Its mechanics are largely based on ZAZ-966 although they were little bit modifed for example the engine was now in front.
In 1979 it the car was updated. It got a bigger 1,2 liter engine. Although it only had 4 more hp it had better torque. In 1980′s it was exported to italy but export versions had better engine from Ford Fiesta 1100.
Although LuAZ-969 doesn’t look like serious offroader and has really small engine it has proven to be a serious offroad machine.
There is also amphibious version that was produced for army LuAZ-967.
