  There was a very odd Volga modification from 1978 - the GAZ M24-56. These cars were with right-hand steering and although with Peugeot Diesel Indenor Engine, Type XDP 4,90, they were not assembled in Belgium. They were produced for Great Britain and Indian markets. Nowadays the M24D are rare enough, but these M24-56s are the rarest M24 Diesel modification (less than 1000 were assembled).
