It looks better in the pics than in reality, more patina, I'll get some pics this weekend.
Go to France, find an old R12 and rebadge it?
Or maybe you want a Dacia 1100 (Renault 8)

They became quite rare, and decent ones are a bit expensive(compared to the 500E Zastava).
Here's an example: http://olx.ro/oferta/dacia-1100-ID2cgBt.html#0e176c8890
-original paint and lots of spare parts
Maybe the price cand drop to 1300E.
Or for ~300E you can get this one: http://olx.ro/oferta/dacia-1100-ID22IM3.html#60d972ac11

We still have some time to look...but even the second one isn't too bad, if it runs.

We could even take it to the finnish ice track meet, it's RWD after all!
Apparently it drives quite good on snow:
Also, suggested by my mechanic friend, who has the post facelift 1980 model, he says that you should fit front A-arms from the pickup version, since they're stronger/stiffer.
Sweet, and good advice, I'm still not sure which route to go, maybe you can help:
- keep it as stock as possible whilst sorting out all the mechanics and electrics, no performance mods, drive it as it is
- keep it as stock as possible blabla but drop in a bigger engine, 5-speed gearbox, drop it a bit, upgrade all the suspension components and fit wider wheels
What do you all think?
- bring the suspension up to snuff (new bushings, shocks, etc...),
- check the steering rack,
- fix the exhaust
- put in the bigger engine with the five speed.
But keep the appearance stock. I wouldn't overdo it on the wheels, maybe 155 tires (some brand name ones that actually are any good). I would not lower the car at all.
