UAZ 469 for sale

Post by Dieselspanner » Tue May 16, 2017 6:08 pm

Hi All

Given the reception that Wizzard had with his ad for a concrete mixer I thought I'd have a go........


I have a 1988 or so UAZ 469 for sale

The 'Wazzik' is the Russian 4x4 seen highly polished up on May day parades and being blown to bits whenever 007 ventures into the old East Block.

I've been dragging wood out of the forest with it for the last 4 years, its as good as a SWB Series Landy, and simpler to fix. Everything mechanical works, light circuits are a bit iffy, it's only done 20,000 k. The outside is rough,chassis is built like a Kraz truck, but absolutely everything is available, dirt cheap from Bulgaria

Looking for 750 euros

All offers, hoots of derision and urine extraction welome!

Cheers Stef

No joking; they are brilliant vehicles. Used a few in Eastern Europe for a year. Impossible to break them.

Whereabouts is it? Why do I have a feeling it's 'not French registered'???

I like the 452....now that's a serious camping car!

Hi Hal

Rich is right, we're just 10 k north of La Mongie, on the D918, and yes It's not French registered, as I said I've been abusing it in the woods and leaving it outside for the last 4 years, so you might attract some attention!

It's Uk reg'd but has been declared 'exported' so a certificate should be available from the DVLA and in a couple of years it should be possible to matriculate it through the FFVA

I do have a Defender and access to a car trailer tho.....

The GAZ / UAZ family are rock hard,I had access to a 'Farmer' in Kazakhstan', 6 in the crew cab and a load of gear in the back It would out perform the Ford Ranger I had on the muddy tracks that got chewed up by the Kraz tippers. Sure Russian reliability has to be taken into account but the full tool kit will fit into a size 4 shoe box.

Cheers Stef

On the half a V5 I have It's declared as being manufactured in 1988 and the address address of the last UK keeper, who's a mate mate of mine.

He's a bit of an anorak so I've a fair amount of paperwork, manuals ect. and details of a bloke in Bulgaria who can get anything, and it will need some panels, on account of my offroad wood collecting!

We run a B&B, so if you fancy a run down here for a look you can have night on me whether or not you want the beast, bring a bottle of decent red, not a whole posse to kick the tyres..........

All our details are on the blue banner 'Chalet Tourmalet' ad at the top

Cheers Stef

Nice offer, thanks a lot!
I have to make a run to Javea soon so will drop in as you seem to be right on my route...

Good red, no tyre kickers, check.

Am I right in thinking it's around 1600kg? Does yours have a rollover cage or bar? I guess it hasn't a current UK MoT cert so would need trailering back?
