Buying a UAZ-452 Van

Recommended Posts

A mate of mine is looking to buy a UAZ-452 Van, which is not common in the UK, and wants to know the pros and cons. Apparently like the UAZ 489 they can be bought for about £2k in Russia. The idea being is to carry his motorbike in the back to shows and camp in it (once the bike has been unloaded I presume!)

you dont have to go to Russia to buy ,as the add says that is for sale in Czech ,try http://www.mobile.de look under cars ,try German E bay and dont forget Hungry ,Bulgaria is a bit far away ,I bought mine in Czech from a dealer Jiri Trojan maybe look him up and see what he has .I dont whats its like to export a vehicle from Russia but I can imagine it includes a lot of waiting around to get things stamped ? go to Czech/Germany drive it home ,maybe avoid Mortor Investiments ?

I was once told by someone who should know that buying things in Russia is no problem, but you have to grease everyone's palms to get your purchase out! If that's still the case, eastern Europe might be a better bet.

Try these people in Eastern Poland. They sorted me out with an Uaz469 a few years ago when I was living abroad and they were brilliant keeping me fed with spares even after I was back in UK. The Uaz 452 is a cracking vehicle - have a look at some of the u-tube videos, but, it is heavy in the steering department!
