GAZ-21 "Volga" 1964
Hello, my friends!
My name is Arman Sadykov and I’m from Kazakhstan, from Almaty city. The searches for Volga GAZ-21 took almost 2 years. I found it in the Taldykurgan town (which is near Almaty). The car was in very good condition, considering the fact, that it was manufactured in 1964. Reasons for such good quality are: firstly, because the owner only drove the car during summers. Secondly, the climate is quite dry, so corrosion never occurred. And lastly, the car never took part in any accidents.
At the very beginning, I knew I was only going to use the original but never-used parts and details, therefore, you can entirely rely on the quality of the car.
Once the price was paid and the batter recharged, I drove 270km on it directly to the team of professionals that was already waiting for me. We evaluated the work to be done and they began to work right away; they completely disassembled the car, and then it was entirely sand blasted (we hired a huge dump truck full of sand).
I purchased new details in advance: the axle, chassis, propeller shaft, springs, the beam, which were also primed and painted.
Having adjusted the doors, the bonnet cover, etc., the parts finally left the spray booth and vehicle was reassembled.
I am grateful to the ‘Retrodetal’ team for the highly professional and efficient cooperation.
Special thanks to Artem.
