Origin of the UAZ-452 vehicles: the UAZ-452 we sell come either from private individuals of from the army. In such a case we only choose the vehicles the least driven possible. As we perform the overhaul by ourselves, it is in our own interest to pick the least rusted vehicles available.

Please note:  even though we do as hard as we can, these cars are mostly 30 years old or more. There will always be some issues to solve. If you wish to come and pick your UAZ by yourself and drive it back, always bring some basic tools with please. Also, there are some particularities of the UAZ you shall progressively get acquainted with before you start driving at long distance.

Works conducted on our UAZ-452 minivans. 

How do we spend the average 150 working hours on one UAZ-452 vehicle?

Please note, works required differ from one vehicle to another.  

First, engine and windows removed, the whole vehicle is sand-blasted.



Normally, there is no need to take the body down. The works on the chassis continue on the heaver.


The chassis is welded where necessary and covered with a unti-rust mean (Body 930). The fuel tanks are welded and sealed and new fuel sensors intalled. 



Brakes are brushed in the inside, drums polished. All brake cylinders in the wheels are changed for new. The air is released. Later, the clutch and brake cylinders are given new gasket sets. 



Brake hoses, both in rubber and in copper are changed for new.


Now all the cutting, welding and puttying  begins.  




Then the filler comes.


Which is brushed again.


After some some kilograms of putty, the basic paint comes. Brushing and more putty. Then, finally, it is double painted green.


 Meanwhile, the engine works proceed.  The compression-ratio is checked. All gaskets are changed. Valves brushed. Piston rings changed. Head polished. Cylinders brushed. Same for the pumps and the carburetor. The engine is cleaned and painted. The gearboxes and the clutch are checked and fine-tuned. All fillings are changed. 







Finally, from bellow, the engine can be installed.  


The engine electricity in is completely changed. Mostly, a new alternator is given. Generally, the whole electric system of the UAZ-452 vehicle has to be exchanged.  


Brand new tyres - road or heavy duty model - are installed. 


Time to fix all the sensors and the gauges.


Eventually, a new, complete inside canvas can be installed.


New or repaired seats are placed.


And, after some testing and eliminating dozens of minor defects, the vehicle is ready.



Importing a UAZ-452 into USA

The cheapest way of transport is having shipped two vehicles at a time in a 40'' container. Generally, you should count with shipping costs of about 2.500 USD. The duty is 2.5%. You will need to fill in a EPA 3520 form and a DOT HS-7 form. The vehicles, as aged above 25 years, are exempt form standard Environmental Protection Agency andDepartment of Transportation pollution and safety requirements. All you need is the VIN Number and the original registration document.
