    Can you please help us in identifying this sedan?

    First thought was a 510, however the single headlights, grille, and heavy mods really have me thrown for a loop. Any help is much appreciated - and to whomever owns this car, jealousy would be an understatement!

    Correct me if i'm wrong but didn't Fiat eventually sell the rights to produce the Fiat 124 and it became the Russian Lada?

    This could be a Lada and not a Fiat.

    I would say like a early rolla but I know that's not right. Does have a fiat look to it.

    The 124 was produced for several years starting in 1966 IRRC through to 1974.

    It's true that Polski-Fiat later became Lada and this could be a Lada, but if it is someone's gone to a lot of trouble to put early (60's) features such as the turn indicators and sidelights on to a later shell, as per the '66 below, courtesy of Wikipedia.

    Whatever, it does look fine.

    as Stated it could be LADA VAZ-2101, most likely, judging by the door handles

    Tidy example

    Thanks for all of the replies... Door handles do seem to be a Lada giveaway... Fiat or Lada, I think I'm in love, but then again you'd probably be reaching for my wallet more than I could take. :wink:
