TATRA 603, 1956—62

While the noble six-seater Tatra 603 limousine was demeaned by its associations with the ruling communist elite, it lacked nothing of the glory of its revolutionary predecessors. It inherited from them the fin at the rear, although here that was only a low ridge. In 1958 five luxuriously equipped 603s were mobile exhibits at the Brussels Expo. At the 31st Wiesbaden Rally in 1959 the Tatra 603 won a gold medal in the Concours d’Elegance.
