O aparitie relativ frecventa pe strazile Romaniei in anii 50 era Skoda 1100 VO. Aproximativ 4000 exemplare au fost construite in Cehia in perioada 1948-51, pe baza modelului 1101/1102 (adica cu tractiune pe spate, nu un 4x4 adevarat). Un numar relativ significativ a ajuns si in Romania, unde au fost folosite de armata si de organele statului, pe langa GAZ-67 si Willys Jeep ramase dupa razboi. Uluitor, un exemplar a circulat pana in 2006, fiind expus la vanzare in 2011; ulterior se pierde urma ei.
Aici, cateva imagini cu exemplare din Romania, marea majoritate fiind din anii 50, o perioada f rara pentru imagini cu masini.
A relatively frequent sight on Romanian roads in the 1950s was the Skoda 1100 VO. Around 4000 were made in Czechoslovakia between 1948 and 1951, based on the 1101/1102. Despite their looks, they were a straightforward rwd model. In Romania a largeish number were imported, where they were used by the army and by other State bodies alongside the GAZ-67 and Willys Jeeps left over from the war. Amazingly, one was still driving as late as 2006; in 2011 it was for sale and after that the trail goes cold.
Below, several images with these cars in Romania, mainly from the 1950s - a very difficult period to find images from.
