1955-1975 TATRA T603 specifications Classic and Performance Car

If you were a senior Communist in any of the Eastern Bloc countries from 1956, the chances are that your vehicular possibilities included the Tatra T603. And if you had any sense of style, you’d have made a beeline straight for the Czech plutocrat with its air-cooled rear-mounted V8 and highly aerodynamic styling. It would have been a wise choice, too, as interior room was massive, the engine note was exceptional, and build quality was first rate. By the end of the Cold War, most survived and subsequently a great many have headed west, where they are now revered by fans.
