Rarity at the price of Toyota Land Cruiser 200: 64-year-old three-wheeled car from the USSR put up for sale
An unusual lot has appeared on the Auto.ru website. A unique Soviet automobile SMZ S-1L, which is in exceptional condition, was put up for sale in St. Petersburg.
SMZ S-1L is a three-wheeled two-seater motorized car with a streamlined body, a cloth roof and one front headlight. Under the hood, it has an engine from an IZH-49 motorcycle with a capacity of slightly more than 7 horsepower and a starter from the 401st “Moskvich”. In conjunction with a four-speed manual gearbox, the engine allows the car to reach speeds of up to 60 km / h. The original car was aimed primarily at drivers with disabilities. It weighs only 345 kg.
The copy put up for sale was released in 1957 and during this time traveled only 1000 kilometers. The buyer asks for it 5,750,000 rubles. The new Toyota Land Cruiser 200 in the basic configuration costs about the same, which is unlikely to be of interest to collectors now, in contrast to the SMZ S-1L.
