Baltijas Dzips, active in Riga, was known for its BD-1322 Tantor model, designed by Dmitrijs Parfenovs under the “Pilots” project. Initially developed in a design office named “Stils”, its production involved transferring body part manufacturing to the Baltic states. Felix Tontegode improved its design, obtaining certification for small-scale production. The brand remained a limited-production model with a focus on pickup body type.
