The collections car was completely restaured

Skoda  1201 Convertible











automaker AZNP at their plant in Mladá Boleslav.

Saloon   and   estate   versions   were   offered   along   with   a   panel   van.   The   car   appeared   in   1954   as   a successor   to   the   Škoda   1200.   It   inherited   its   predecessor's   steel   ponton   format   body.   One difference   was   the   fitting   of   flashing   turn   signal   indicators,   whereas   the   1200   had   incorporated semaphore   style   trafficators   in   its   front   wings:   subsequent   retro-fitting   of   flashing   indicators   to old   1200s   has   left   this   as   an   imperfect   method   for   distinguishing   between   the   two   models, however. The   car   was   powered   by   a   four-cylinder   1221   cc   ohv   water-cooled   engine   producing   at   maximum power   33   kW   at   4,200   rpm.   The   four-speed   gear-box   included   synchromesh   on   the   top   three ratios,   power   being   delivered   to   the   rear   wheels   via   a   jointed   prop   shaft. Top   speeds   of   between 90 km/h (56 mph) and 105 km/h (65 mph) were quoted. The 1201 was available as a four-door saloon and as a three- or five-door station wagon. A panel van (light delivery van) and pick-up truck version were also produced. Production   ended   in   1961,   which   was   also   the   year   in   which   production   began   of   the   successor model, the Škoda 1202.
