The original color of GAZ-13 "Chaika" - is black. The only one white Chaika was made for special order and was presented to Valentina Tereshkova. It was symbolic, since her call sign in space was Chaika. The red Chaika was given to the head of the fire department. Bicolor Chaikas were made exclusively for the Brussels Exhibition “Grand Prix”.


Chaika was never sold to regular customers, however they were allowed to rent Chaikas for weddings and special occasions.

By the way, Chaika had another important peculiarity - a limit on the mileage, which was installed on a mandatory basis. After the car "rolled" a certain number of kilometers, either the motor part of the car was completely changed or it was repainted white and transferred to the centers of marriage.
