Auctioneer’s Comment Cars

Cars Big and Small

 

A Cold War Tatra T600 Tatraplan car sold by Charterhouse in their 4th November auction of classic and vintage cars has been bought by a Slovakian Tatra collector who lives only 50 miles away from where it was made in 1950 at Ostrava in the Czech Republic.

“It was a very busy auction which totalled over £200,000 but it was the 1950 Tatra which most people found fascinating.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “With its aerodynamic body having a rear fin, somewhat similar to Formula 1 race car today, it was a somewhat strange looking car. Fitted with a 2,000cc engine in the rear it ran and drove which is quite amazing as it had been garage stored by its owner for nearly 50 years!”
