Moskvich-410N

1958 Moskvich 410N at Riga Motor Museum.

The Moskvitch 410 is a car which was made by Soviet manufacturer Moskvitch from 1957. The 410 was conceived as a four wheel drive version of the Moskvitch 402.

It was powered by a 35 hp (26 kW) engine, but in 1958 upgraded to the 410N (in Russian: 407Н), fitted with a more modern 45 hp (34 kW) unit, from Moskvitch 407[1]. An estate called the 411 was also made from 1958. Three-door wagon 431 remained a prototype. The production ceased in 1961, in a favour of increasing Moskvitch 407 production for export. In total only 7580 of model 410 and 1515 of model 411 were made[1]. Originally conceived as an economical and comfortable mean of transport for agricultural machines' repairing teams, it was the oldest vehicle to conform to crossover SUV criteria[1]. The oldest known SUV is the Gaz-M72 which started production 3 years earlier(1955). A standard equipment included radio and folding seats.

The ground clearance was 220 mm (8.7 in) under axles and 430 mm under a floor[1], it could cross water up to 0.3 metres (11.8 in) deep, and in first gear it could climb 33 degrees. The early version had a 3x2 speed + 1x2 rear gearbox which in 1960 was replaced by a 4x2 speed + 1x2 rear gearbox. The top speed was 90 km/h (56 mph).
