1950 Tatra T600 Streamliner
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:14:11 PM »
I thought this car might have some interest here.

Description:
1950 Tatra T600 Streamliner, This extremely rare European luxury streamlined sedan represents some of the most futuristic aerodynamics of the day. From it's teardrop shaped body to the dorsal fin along the spine, there is simply nothing else in the automotive world like it.
The "Tatraplan" or T-600 is the last of the 40's design streamliners produced by Tatra. Earlier models are trading in the stratosphere and the interest cotinues to climb as examples are shown at concours events and featured in the collectors press. These are very scarce motorcars that absolutely will draw the crowd away from nearly any vehicle at any event.
This example is a fantastic basis for a full restoration with an amazingly solid body and chassis and excellent shut lines to the doors and such. It is almost entirely complete. A very large collection of spares is with the car currently and can be negotiated for in the sale. This stash of parts is perhaps one of the most extensive in the country and is very valuable to the worldwide Tatra community as the rarity of the parts is simply staggering.
Open to realistic serious offers and possible partial trades. This is a strong bargain on a vehicle that is truly rare and unique. You will be the ONLY one on your block with a Tatra!

 
$17,500 obo 951-767-1600

Nice! These cars are entirely in a styling class of their own and have no where to go in value but up.

I saw another Tatra that came up for sale, as a well started project on Ebay & thought about posting it here. Now I will...

The seller of the eBay item has an injury that does not permit him to complete the restoration. The car is totally complete and has some additional parts as well. I spoke to him a few days ago as he has some spare engine blocks and gearboxes which I am considering buying just so they don't go to the scrap yard, and they might be useful when I start the restoration of mine. This one would be much better value than the one in the original post. I understand that the reserve is $12,500.

If anyone is interested in buying it, and it doesn't sell on eBay, send me a PM and I will pass the number on.
