The Škoda 1101 is a small family car that was produced by Czechoslovak automaker AZNP at their plants in Mladá Boleslav, Vrchlabí and Kvasiny. It was basically a modernized version of the Škoda Popular 1101, which was introduced in 1939. The main differences were a redesigned body (although still with wooden frame) and a new dashboard. Production of the Škoda 1101 began in 1946.
In 1949 the Škoda 1102 entered production. It was virtually identical with 1101 type, except for a new column-mounted shifter. The two models were produced simultaneously, with 1102 chassis preferably used for sedan bodies and 1101 for vans, station-wagons and ambulances. Production ceased in 1952, by when about 67,000 vehicles had been made, of which some 50,000 vehicles were exported.
The Škoda 1101/1102 is also known by the popular name Tudor, derived from its two-door sedan body, which was the first to come into production. This nickname was eventually commonly used for all 1101/1102, regardless of their body.
A military version of the Škoda 1101 was built, called the Škoda 1101 VO. It has the same chassis and mechanicals as the standard Škoda 1101, with new all-steel, open 4-door body. In 1948–51 4,237 vehicles were produced, most of them for export.
The car is powered by a four-cylinder 1089 cc OHV water-cooled engine producing at maximum power 32 hp at 4,200 rpm. The four-speed gear-box includes synchromesh on the top two 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: 100 km/h (62 mph).
Skoda 1102 Station Wagon
Very rare vehicle!
This 1952 Skoda 1102 Station Wagon is in very good condition as can be seen in the photos, driven only 36000km. It even has the original registration book from 1952, in the book as well is some nice history about the car.
It is fully functional and ready to be used, for many years now it has only been used in the summer months briefly, just to keep everything in working order.
At some stage throughout its life it has had a respray in the original colour and the seats have had new coverings, you will also see in the photos that the rear floor sections have been replaced. One other thing to mention is that at some stage it has been leaking some brake fluid onto part of the chassis, this has caused a reaction on the paint and can be seen in the photos.
All the chrome trimming looks very nice, as far as I know it is original.
It is registered on the Finnish museum registry and looking at the paperwork it was sold new here in Finland.
