Very Old Mint Condition Car

Very Old Mint Condition CarAs I walked out into the street this morning, I saw parked outside the house on the cobblestone road a very old car. It was in mint condition. On the front it had the name Moskvits (мoскьич). I have no idea how old it is. Perhaps some viewer can give some info here on the year of this particular Russian model?
