The FSO Warszawa was a Polish car manufactured by the Fabryka Samochodów Osobowych of Warsaw. The Warszawa was based on the Soviet Pobeda, and more than 250,000 Warszawa’s built in total between 1951 and 1973.

The Warszawa was the first new-design Polish car built after the Second World War. Warszawas were seen as sturdy and rugged, but, probably due to their heavy weight were underpowered and very thirsty!

The Warszawa was also available as a pick-up and the basis for two immensely popular rigid panel vans, the Żuk (made from 1958 to 1997) and the Nysa (made from 1958 to 1994).
