For sale from a private collection SMZ S3D 1980 in immaculate condition .Extremely rare exhibit with all original parts and spare parts including tires made in Ussr.
The SMZ cyclecar was a Soviet microcar, manufactured in Serpukhov, Russia, by Serpukhov Motor Works , later known as the now-defunct SeAZ. S3D, also well known in USSR as Ivalidka (vehicle for person with disabilities ) was specially designed for disabled drivers and were distributed in the USSR free or at a large discount through the Soviet Union's social welfare system, and were not officially sold to non-disabled people. The S-3D, produced between 1970 and 1997, was a twin-seat, four-wheeled cyclecar, 2.6 meters (102.4 in) in length, but rather heavy (≈500 kg) due to all-steel body. It was powered by IZH-P3 air-cooled two-stroke engine (18 DIN hp), which is borrowed from motorcycle. In the USSR the model was commonly known as a "motor-wheelchair" because they were only leased via social care system to disabled people for five years without permission to sell . After five years of use, a lessee had to return his "motor-wheelchair" to the social care organizations, and was given a new one. This was the main reason why only few of them survived to this days , that’s what makes SMZ cars the rarest soviet vehicles in history . To ride the cyclecar a driver had to have an A category driving license. Disabled persons were helped by social department to learn driving and get driving license. It also had some advantages as well like a big glazed space the vehicle had good view from driver’s seat, also the vehicle was easy to drive and had big space around driver’s seat which was comfortable for disabled persons. However, not all of the "invalidkas" were scrapped, because some of their disabled lessees managed to register them as their private property. However, nowadays they are rare, and earlier models are exceptionally rare and have become collectors' items.
