Tatra 603

Friday 16 October 2009
The model replaced the T600 Tatraplan model in 1956. Three versions of the model T603 were manufactured successively between 1956 and 1975. These cars are designated T603-1, T603-2 and T603-3, though the -3 was not an official designation used by Tatra. The T603-1 is easily distinguished by its three headlamps enclosed beneath a clear glass cover. The T603-2 had four headlamps mounted within a long oval grill, while the unofficial -3 omits the grill and places the headlamps flush with the car's front fascia. To complicate matters, as Model T603s were returned to the factory to be exchanged for "new" model T603s, the older cars would be disassembled and rebuilt to the current styling. These cars were then returned to use as "new" T603's. As a result, most T603s are of the later -3 styling, regardless of their original production date.
