Host Vojtěch Koval presents the history of the ŠKODA 1100 OHC Coupé racing car in the latest episode of the SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST, which ŠKODA AUTO is also publishing as a videocast on its YouTube channel. Only two units of the elegant closed-body racing car were built in 1959/1960. Both took part in races until 1962, before being written off in traffic accidents. Last year, experts from the ŠKODA Museum and Prototype Construction Centre restored one of the 1100 OHC Coupés. To do so, they relied on original documentation and used several surviving original parts. In addition to state-of-the-art technologies, the team drew on traditional manufacturing techniques, for example in body construction.
Host Vojtěch Koval talks to the experts as well as the first owner of the original ŠKODA 1100 OHC Coupé from the 1960s in the podcast and the accompanying video.
