The purpose of The Vehicle Project is to take me and the viewers to places not possible to reach on foot, not in any reasonable time anyway :) It's also not possible for me to finance such a vehicle in any reasonable time and this is of course the reason why i reach out to my viewers. A "Survival-Russia Channel" vehicle will certainly take the Channel and content further.
The plan is to add wider front and rear axles (from UAZ) and then larger and wider low-pressure tires enabling the vehicle to drive on top of deep snow.
The LYAZ 969 is a very light and small vehicle. Weight is 950 kg, length is 3.3 meters, width is 1.6 meters and height is 1.79 meters. This makes it a great basis vehicle. I have found a vehicle 400 km (250 miles) from here, very similar to the one pictured above. Not in as stunning condition but close to. I have experience in modifying and restoring old/classic vehicles, so i know it's important to start out with a good vehicle. Often times it's far from cost/time effective to start out with a vehicle in poor condition.
Currently the amount donated is 186$ and we have to reach1200$. It's possible to make donations to the links below. Thank you for the help!
