Skoda 1200 Sedan 1955
Skoda 1200 was a family car produced by Czechoslovakian automaker AZNP at their plant in Mladá Boleslav. Sedan and station wagons versions were offered. The car appeared in 1952 as a successor to the Skoda 1101. It was the first mass-produced Skoda to use the steel ponton format body.
The car was powered by a four-cylinder 1213 cc ohv water-cooled engine producing at maximum power 36 PS (26 kW) at 4,200 rpm. The four-speed gearbox included synchromesh on the top three ratios, power being delivered to the rear wheels via a jointed prop shaft. Front suspension: Independent using transverse leaf springs. Rear suspension: independent using transverse leaf springs with floating half-axles. Top speed: 105 km/h (65 mph).
The 1200 was available as a four-door saloon, three-door van or five-door station wagon. There were also made about 2,000 ambulances.
Production ended in 1956.
This Skoda 1200 Sedan was inspected (MOT/TUV) on 01.04.2021 and passed without any issues, it has always been maintained well by the previous owner. Also registered on the Finnish Museum register.
The previous owner restored the car over 25 years ago, it still looks good but is showing its age on the outside. It is perfectly fine to use as is, but it would benefit from rubbing down and respraying. Chrome work is very nice.
Interior is good for its age, even the old radio still works. In some of the photos it looks like the door cards are stained, this is just water from when I washed the car.
Underneath is totally rust free and in good order.
I have given it a short test drive and it drives well, the only main thing that I would like to point out is that the clutch shudders a bit when pulling away. Brakes and steering are all good. Engine sounds nice.
I have a load of detailed photos that can be sent, just ask if you would like to see them. Also a walkaround video.
