Is This a Russian Niva or a Ford Bronco?

Ford Broncos have been popular for ages, and they hold their values well over time. But what happens when you want a Bronco but there’s isn’t one around (or you’re a tad short on funds to get one). A man going by the nomiker Cliffsad in Russia found his own answer to this conundrum – make one of your own!


This crafty guy may not have a bona fide Bronco, but it’s pretty darn close. Considering how he achieved this white look-alike, it’s an impressive feat. He took an extremely rough example of an AvtoVAZ Lada Niva 4×4 and totally reworked the appearance of the lifted economy car.


Cliffsad fashioned his own grille and tailgate, which are eerily similar to those of a 2004 Bronco, and welded them on tight. Then, he cleaned up the body and slapped on a bright white paint job and completely updated the interior. Although it took quite a bit of time and effort, Cliffsad is now the proud owner of a Niva disguised as a Bronco – or is it the other way around?
