The first ŠKODA OCTAVIA from 1959

The first two-door version of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA left the main plant in Mladá Boleslav in January 1959 – alongside its predecessors Š 440 and Š 445 for the first few weeks. Under the hood of the OCTAVIA, a robust four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1.1 litres was used, generating 29.4 kW (40 hp) and driving the rear wheels via a four-speed gearbox.
