Moskvitches were assembled in Bulgaria by the Balkan factory:

The longer article in Bulgarian from the same site mentions the 2140 -- can anyone translate? :)

Wasn't there also an assembly-factory in Belgium? Or do I confuse it with the Wolga limousine?

I think you do, Ingo. Doubtless someone will correct me on this, but I think the Volga M-21 was assembled in Belgium and fitted with Diesel motors, originally Perkins, later Peugeot. Someone apparently thought they'd make good taxis.
:lol:

Quote During the 1960s-80s the Volga was also assembled in Belgium, with the model M21 at first. This took place at SA Sobimpex, NV, in Brussels. The cars came to the harbour in Antwerp without engine and with the gearbox, disassembled, in the boot. At Sobimpex they initially built in a Perkins Four-99 diesel engine. Later on the Perkins diesel engine was succeeded by a Rover engine (found also in the Land Rover), which was succeeded for the GAZ-24 by an Indenor engine from Peugeot (found also in Peugeot J 7 Diésel); the model now gained the designation "D", for Diesel.

Also the Moskvitch was assembled in Belgium and sold (at least) there and in Holland under the name of Scaldia (latin for Schelde/l'Escaut, the river that crosses Antwerp). There was the older model (412?) and the model shown here (though in an older version) as 408 and later 1400 or 1400 Diesel.

Do you know, how many "Belgian" Moskvitch and Wolga were made? And if some are still eixisting?
The one and only "Belgian" Moskvitch, I have seen, has been that one: http://www.icmesa.com/tinhunter/Houthalen/Moskvitch.jpg
at that location: http://www.icmesa.com/tinhunter/Houthalen/THAHouthalen.htm
(I think, on that place was a Volga, too.)

Also there were some remarks in magazines like the yearly "auto katalog" of the 70ies.

Hi all,
the translation should be sth like this (I'm Bulgarian but my english...:/): After 1976 is adopted the manifacturing of the new serie with a better style of Moskvitch 2138/2140 with engines 1360/1500 cm3, which is a heritate of the models 408/412 (the production of the cars with engine 1360 cm3 is stopped since 1979)
I hope this will help!

Congratulations!
Do you have an idea, how many are still existing today?

I have Mostwitch-rememberings from GDR-visits in the lates 80ies. My friend obver there had a 1997-model. I was irritated about the trunk (why was the spare-wheel placed there?) and I when the trunk-lid was open, I always tried to push it up, because I thought, it doesn't open correctly - but I couldn't lift it.

Thanx!
I'm not sure about the number - they became very rare since the years 199_, but it's still possible to see them. In Moskvich almost everything is easy to open and quite difficult to close :)

Sorry, a correction: the Moskwich was a 1977-model, surely no 1997.

Thanks for your comments, niki.

To rename - in Bulgaria the later 2138 and 2140 were known as 1360 and 1500

I bet such names they had in most of COMECON export markets. The very few Moskvitches of this gen. imported to Poland also were 1360/1500 (though perhaps exceptions were also possible).
