Skoda 1101 Tudor

The Škoda 1101 was a small family car produced by Czech

automaker AZNP at their plants in Mladá Boleslav,

Vrchlabí and Kvasiny.

It was basically a modernized version of Škoda Popular 1101 type, which was introduced in 1939. Main difference was redesigned body (although still with wooden frame) and new dashboard. Production of Škoda 1101 commenced in 1946. In 1949 Škoda 1102 came into production; it was virtually identical with 1101 type, except for new column-mounted shifter. Both models were produced simultaneously, with 1102 chassis preferably used for sedan bodies and 1101 for vans, station-wagons and ambulances. Production ceased in 1952; until then about 67,000 vehicles were made, of which some 50,000 vehicles were exported. Škoda 1101/1102 was also known under popular name Tudor, derived from its two-door sedan body, which was the first to came into production. This nickname was eventually commonly used for all 1101/1102, regardless of their body. Military version of Škoda 1101 existed, called Škoda 1101 VO. It featured unchanged chassis and mechanicals of standard Škoda 1101, with new all-steel, open 4-door body. During 1948–1951 4,237 vehicles were produced, mostly for export. The car was 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 included 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 kph; (62 mph).
