At the Rétromobile classic car exhibition in Paris (February 2014), ŠKODA 935 Dynamic was presented at a partial stage of restoration, shortly before lacquering.
This unique vehicle was restored to its original form at the museum. The exacting process took the restorers 6 years. This was assisted by the fact that the vehicle had been preserved almost in its original state. Only the paint and dashboard were different from those in 1935. Moreover, the original look was well documented in historic photos so the workers of the restorers’ workshop had enough clues for their work.
“Restoring the body, which is a combination of aluminium and steel sheet, was the most difficult,” says Michal Velebný from ŠKODA Museum’s restoration workshop. A bit of luck also helped the restorers in their demanding work. At the inner side of one pillar they discovered the original paint and so could restore the car to the shade it wore during its premiere at the Prague Motor Show.
The unique ŠKODA 935 Dynamic can now again impress drivers on the road. “Most of all, I like the elegance it displays while nearly floating across the landscape. And as to details, I’d pick the decorative rear wheel covers as my favourite,” says Mr Velebný, relating his view on the unique vehicle he helped restore to its original beauty.
