    This emerald-green vintage car, a 38-year-old VAZ-21033 Zhiguli produced by the legendary automobile manufacturer in the Russian city of Tolyatti, has been preserved in its original condition.

    According to the car's owner, this deluxe compact sedan, produced in December 1979, is now up for sale for 3.5 million rubles ($62,000). For 38 years, this Zhiguli has been stored in a private collection at a permanent temperature of 18° C, which provided an incredible level of preservation of the vehicle.

    VAZ-21033, a modification of the Fiat-based VAZ-2103 model, had a slightly different engine than the basic version of the car. It was produced by AvtoVAZ in 1977-1983 and exported as the Lada 1300S.
