Auctioneer’s Comment Cars

Cold War Car Emerges

 

A rare Tatra Czechoslovakian car, from 1950, has emerged from the cold and is entered into the Charterhouse auction of classic and vintage cars on Sunday 4th November.

“It’s is an amazing car, the likes of which you rarely see and then generally only in museums.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “It is quite unusual in appearance, almost sinister, and with a connection believed to be with the Czech Embassy who knows what stories could tell.”

Little history is known of this 1950 Tatra T600 Tatraplan. Finished in silver with suicide doors and a brown leather interior, the car is unusual with its 2 litre flat four engine fitted in the rear. However, what is possibly more unusual, and quite striking, it the aerodynamic body complete with distinctive fin at the rear.
