The most popular and mass-produced Soviet family sedan was the Moskwich 408. They presented it in 1964 and produced it all the way until 1982 in numerous versions. The technology was primitive and the 408 was a slow, sturdy car with just 50 HP coming from its 1.4-liter engine.
But the design was inspired by the American cars of the ’50s. From the chrome grille, round headlights, side panels and small chrome fins, everything on this Soviet car screamed American styling.
