An exceptionally well-preserved Škoda Favorit was sold for almost 600,000. They are heading to the Czech Republic from Greece

  • Old Škoda cars are highly valued in the Czech Republic and interested parties do not hesitate to pay huge sums for them

  • This is also proven by the Favorit model, which recently went to an online auction

  • The car, which had driven only 34 km, was finally sold for 24,000 euros, i.e. almost 600,000 crowns

Old Škoda models were at one time worthless goods put away in nettles, scrap yards, or were sold for a few thousand, or even for a bottle of some alcohol. But these days are long gone. In particular, historic cars of domestic brands are highly valued in our country. Sellers do not hesitate to ask for over a hundred thousand for rolling pieces, often in not quite original condition, and interested parties do not hesitate to pay more than half a million for the really well-preserved specimens. This is proven, for example, by the unusually well-preserved Favorit from Greece, which was recently sold via the Collecting Cars website for 24,000 euros. In conversion, we are talking about an amount of almost 600 thousand crowns.

Specifically, it was a 1993 Škoda Favorit that was stored as it was delivered in the early 1990s and hasn’t been driven since. At the time of sale, the car had driven only 34 km. The car was serviced in May, when everything needed was replaced so that the Favorit could start driving again. The perfect paint is said to have only minor scratches from handling the sail, the interior is completely intact and the seats are still covered with plastic. A look at the detailed gallery on collectingcars.com, through which the car was sold, will confirm that this piece is in truly perfect condition.

What is the price of an almost unused Škoda 105S? At the auction in Lysá nad Labem, an exceptionally well-preserved piece was sold for 605,000

Several bidders competed for the car, the winning bid was ultimately worth CZK 589,000. The new owner is from the Czech Republic, so maybe this unique piece will show up somewhere in public in time.

Although roughly 600,000 is quite a lot for the Favorit, it is still nothing compared to the Škoda 100, which was sold for almost two million some time ago. But maybe the price of Favorites will continue to rise. After all, not so many of them have survived in their preserved condition, and in the condition in which the Greek specimen was sold, there will be an absolute minimum of them.
