Lot 116 - 1980 UAZ 469 Jeep
- Circa 1980 utility vehicle
- Property of the McAlpine Estate
Developed from the GAZ-69, UAZ-471 and UAZ-460, the UAZ-469 was introduced in 1971 to replace the GAZ-69. It is powered by the same 75 bhp 2,445 cc UMZ-452MI inline-four engine as the UAZ-452 and is able to run on petrol with an octane rating as low as 72 (although 76 was preferred). The UAZ-469 presented two great advantages: it was able to drive in virtually any terrain and it was very easy to repair. The vehicle was originally not available for purchase by the public, but many were sold as surplus to private owners. After slight modernisation in 1985, due to new industry designation standards, they were renamed: the UAZ-469 became the UAZ-3151, while the UAZ-469B became the UAZ-31512. The currently manufactured UAZ Hunter is an updated version of the old UAZ-469B. The Hunter was originally sold in Germany and some Asian countries as the "UAZ Tigr" (Tiger). The UAZ-469 was exported to eighty countries, and between 1.65 to 2 million units of the vehicle and its variants were produced.
Little is known of this UAZ which was purchased by Sir William McAlpine some years ago, as is well know he had an eye for the eclectic and this clearly took his eye and has been on display at Fawley Hill, the famous family residence, ever since. Presented in its military green with a very good soft top this example has been dry stored and believed to be a late 70’s or early 80’s vehicle however we have yet to be able to establish the exact date of production. Running at time of inspection this example will require some recommissioning and is sold on the bill of sale. A car that is renowned for its ease of maintenance. Consignor Mathew Priddy
