Produced 1971-1978. Its pretty similar to ZAZ-966. It has the same engine. It has new front grille, different dashboard, better front breaks. Zaporozhets was the cheapest car in its time and it made a car available for many people. Of course you had to get the premit to buy a car etc. But still..

  1. There is another ZAZ 968M model without ears and modern exterior and with changes inside the car. My family had all 3 Zaporozhets models, last one has been sold 5 years ago. All of them were in good technical condition, but it was hard to take care of several cars at a time. Now I’m missing them.
