MEN Klassisch, 1986 Urbvan LD.

For nearly the entirety of its existence, workers in the eastern bloc had little choice other than the MEN vans and trucks. However, during the late 70s, more and more began turning to imported vans from China and other socialist countries. To combat this, more funding was given to MEN to develop a new Urbvan and keep the manufacturing industry afloat. However, as the Soviet involvement in Afghanistan developed, funding was shifted away from the Urbvan project and toward vehicles suitable for the conflict. The end result was the Urbvan LD, after almost every corner had been cut to get it to production.

It used a 3.2L 6 Cyllinder engine with much more power than any predecessor. 112 Horsepower. And the MEN engineers (Or Mengineers) were forced to reuse the existing 3 speed manual to save on costs. It had solid axle suspension all around, in part due to save development costs, in further part to handle the tough, poorly maintained roads. All Urbvan LDs were equipped with 4WD with transfer cases to give the engine more punch when needed.

Function-wise, the Urbvan LD was acceptable. However complaints of refinement, break downs and poor build quality, the issues that drove up the popularity of imports in the first place, were not addressed. Most who purchased the Urbvan LD did so out of nationalistic defiance, and probably would have had a certain song about a siege playing on the radio, had the van come with one as standard…

You can’t upload MP4 files onto Discourse. You have to hyperlink it through a third party site like streamable or YT.
