1,046cc. This rare survivor has an interesting history. Supplied new by Paul Wooding Ltd, Britannia Garage, Shipley to a Mr Oxley of Skipton. Mr Oxley kept the car until 1998 when his local MoT station told him that the car required some welding. He sold the car for £15 to a local scrap yard, Chris Watsons & Sons of Salterforth. In a letter on file, Mr Oxley states that when he drove the car to the scrap yard the mileage reading of 25,259 was correct. A little while later, the scrap yard sold the car on for £75 to a Mr  & Mrs Nutter, who decided to rescue and restore the Skoda. Work carried out included the fitting of new wings, sills and a full respray in the original colour before storing the car in a heated and carpeted garage. The car has clearly led a charmed life since, and although it has been regularly MoT'd  just 161 miles have been covered since it was restored. Comes with current V5 recording 4 registered owners, two past V5's, a letter from the first owner, 1998 sales invoice and a few MoT certificates. 25,420 miles
