That vehicle is a BRDM-2, but I've never seen one with that sort of top!

the top was at the end torn off by jumping KITT, so that is for sure made for movie :) question is about the rest...

It tries to look like a GAZ 41-08 BRDM-2, but it is a complete fake.

I wonder, how did they obtain Soviet army equipment for TV shows & movies during the Cold War?

Also, why are you calling it a GAZ, Alex?

Well, they didn't! That's why I called it a fake. It is a mock up made in some Hollywood backyard workshop.

The original BRDM-2 was made by GAZ. 'BRDM-2' is just a military name used by the Soviet Army meaning reconnaissance vehicle.

I've read some articles about the creation and testing of Hummer, and for Hellfire rocket launcher test thy used Russian BRDM-look like mock ups to target and destroy :) So this should not be an unusual item..

I would dispute the "complete fake" judgement made just on the basis that this is "soviet army equipment ... during the Cold War" - vehicles built in Eastern Europe were occasionally available to the west, most as "spoils of war" (from countries like Israel, Vietnam and so on).

Real BRDM-2s have slightly more contoured edges at the front, and the side steps sit between the two bodyside creases than below it. Definitely a mock-up, but a good one.
