Quite possibly the best surviving Skoda Favorit Black Line Edition to be found anywhere?

INTERIOR
Being a post 1991 Favorit, the year in which Skoda entered the joint-venture partnership with Volkswagen, this example benefits from positive revisions to the interior in addition to improvements to exterior build quality, styling and safety. Volkswagen seats, dashboard and instruments were incorporated and you cannot fail to notice the vibrant special seat upholstery, the pattern of which is shared with the sister variant, the Silver Line Edition, but with a deliciously 90’s colour scheme unique to the Black Line. All interior furnishings, door cards, carpets and headlining are beautifully clean and preserved in line with the low mileage. The equipment and controls operate perfectly including the factory fitted Blaupunkt Paris stereo and central locking fitted as standard to the model. The luggage area is spotless and even the original boot torch remains in place but currently inoperational. Perfect modern classic family motoring for those who insist on being different!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The front mounted four-cylinder engine was a significant departure from Skoda’s traditional rear mounted engine fitted to the Favorit’s predecessors, the 105/120 Estelle and Rapid range. The 1289cc unit features Bosch Mono Motronic fuel injection and produces 54bhp and 94Nm of torque to achieve a top speed of 93mph and 0-62mph in 15 seconds. The engine bay is spotlessly clean with factory plates, chassis number stamp, PDI dabs and stickers all present and undamaged. Incredibly even the paint code label remains attached to the bulkhead which is virtually unheard of! Likewise, the common areas prone to water retention and corrosion are absolutely perfect in structure. The sturdy 5-speed gearbox is superb in operation.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Ronal Centra diamond cut alloy wheels with Black glossy inner finish are pristine and complete with lockable centre caps. Matching tyres are fitted all round with excellent tread. The servo assisted braking system is factory standard and stops the car as it should.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Skoda Main Dealer Main Dealer, Fourways of Ossett, the car was registered on the 7th April 1994. This delightful example was first registered to a Mrs Stainthorpe and had remained in the family for 26 years during which time it passed to two further family members of the same surname and address. Since 2020, the car has been in the ownership of two passionate Skoda enthusiasts and has even been displayed each year at the Hagerty Festival of the Unexceptional where the car was marvelled and even drew the attention of several prominent classic car social media content creators. Photos, videos and vlogs are numerous online!

The original Skoda document wallet holds all handbooks, guides and dealership literature including the service book with 12 stamps as well as both sets of keys. A folder of invoices and previous MOT records is present and the most recent service was in March 2024 at a renowned Skoda specialist, Chris Pepper Motor Services. A miraculous survivor and as the original Favorit Black Line sales brochure claims, ‘The elegant way to drive black!’

EXTERIOR
‘Surprising Skoda’ was the slogan used in the original sales brochure to advertise the Estelle Two 120L and it is no surprise that everyone at KGF Classic Cars have fallen in love with this one owner example! Finished in Pebblestone, (Code 2040), the paintwork has been subject to extensive detailing and some professional cosmetic refurbishment carried out to an exceptional standard to achieve the amazing visual appeal you see today. Noticeable only upon close inspection are some small areas touched-in above the rear screen and front passenger door top. The underside is incredible having never seen repair work. The two-piece bumpers, registration etched glass, lights, and trim sections are all fully intact and the original supplying dealer number plates and Lombard RAC Rally sticker remain fitted. A rare surviving example preserved with 14,413 verified miles and one owner from new. Does it get much better?!

INTERIOR
Simplicity was the ethos behind these cars to the extent where the specification was a ‘take it or leave it’ affair with no factory options available! The one and only owner requested a dealer fit bodyside coachline in an attempt to zhuzh up the exterior whereas the interior remains the sturdy utilitarian and purposeful space it was always intended to be. The black seat fabric with clean white stripe stitching is in incredible condition with no thinning or rips and the black vinyl door cards are fully intact. The carpets exude durability over opulence and the hard-wearing pile is free from damage and protected by the original sturdy Skoda tray mats which do show some aging. Totally original even down to the protective cellophane below the rear seat base and all interior equipment is also fully operational. The huge front luggage compartment with quirky side hinged hood is clean and still has the protective mat and tool roll as well as bulkhead chassis stamp, VIN plate, AZNP build plate and delicate labels. Perfect retro family motoring for those who dare to be different!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The rear mounted four-cylinder OHV engine is factory fitment and famed for its toughness and ability to cope with the harshness of its Eastern Bloc origins. Developing 52bhp at 5000rpm and 86Nm of torque at 3000rpm, the sales brochure quotes peak speed at 87mph. The engine compartment is very clean and complete with the original jack and even the fragile Skoda Recommend Duckhams sticker remains on the blue air filter housing. The 4-speed manual gearbox operates perfectly and feels light yet agricultural, exactly as it was made!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This exceptional example has factory fitted 13” steel wheels in excellent condition with perfect Skoda centre caps. Branded new premium Uniroyal 165/80 R13 tyres were fitted in October 2022 and the original front underslung spare wheel wears the factory fitted Uniroyal tyre. The standard braking system has been completely overhauled in 2022.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Skoda Main Dealer, Athlone Motor Co. of Warrington, the car was registered on the 1st May 1989 to the first and only keeper, Mrs Haselden. All purchase documentation including the deposit receipt, order form and sales invoice confirms
the price paid of £4,060.56 less part exchange allowance of £1,800 for Mrs Haselden’s 1974 Volkswagen Beetle. The history file includes the original handbook and service schedule as well as the initial PDI checklist. MOT certificates date back to the very first in 1992 until 2004 when the car was taken off the road upon Mrs Haselden ceasing driving. Post 2004 there are tax reminder notices/SORN applications relevant to the years the car was not in use and the last tax disc from 2004 remains in the front screen.

In March 2022 KGF Classic Cars purchased the car from a charity lot at Manor Park Classics auction which was highly publicised by TV personalities Paul Cowland and Fuzz Townshend with all profits donated to the Ukrainian Refugee Fund. Over the last seven months here at KGF Classic Cars, we have thoroughly immersed ourselves in the world of Skoda’s and the car has undergone total recommissioning with lots of blood, sweat and tears, a real labour of love! Every aspect of the car was checked, tested and the program of works included full overhaul of ignition system, fuel and carburation, total renewal of braking system, major service, new tyres and electrical wellness. The car is remarkably original and some localised professional paintwork has been carried out to bring the car back to the glory you see today.

Following on from the initial motive to buy the car, KGF Classic Cars will donate all profits from the sale of this car to Ukrainian Refugee Fund. Contained in the large history file is a full breakdown of all works undertaken. We are immensely proud of this little Skoda and the car now looks and performs just as it should and never fails to put a smile on your face whenever you drive it, and the attention it attracts is simply wonderful!

Skoda Felicia Fun Pickup

SORRY NOW SOLD – SIMILAR WANTED

A Lifestyle Edition of 612 UK Skoda Felicia Fun Pickups with only 17,301 miles.

MODEL HISTORY
Released as a limited-edition Lifestyle Vehicle in 1997 and produced until 2001, the Skoda Felicia Fun was a huge departure from the marques usual staid and sensible family vehicles. Built at the Skoda factory in Vrchlabí, Czech Republic, the intention was to produce just 300 units for the UK market. As much as a surprise that Skoda produced the car in the first place was that the car was very well received in the UK market despite the vehicles design somewhat ill-suited to UK climate. In total 612 cars were sold into the UK. All cars were factory finished in Yellow Fun paint and featured the ingenious sliding rear bulkhead to reveal 2 folding rear seats which were exposed to the elements. UK buyers thankfully were offered respite from the poor weather with a number of factory optional additional roof combinations. Most cars came with a darker yellow body kit, bumpers and trim and in some rare instances buyers were able to choose this body kit colour scheme in orange or green.

EQUIPMENT
Type 796 pick-up body with 2+2 seat configuration, sliding rear bulkhead to reveal 2 folding rear seats, full body kit with integral bull bar, large bumpers, roof rails, roll-over bar, unique Yellow Fun paintwork to body, contrasting dark yellow body kit paint, Frog Prince C-pillar and rear door decals, Yellow leather/cloth upholstery with Frog Prince logo, rear storage lockers, wooden load bed protector slats. Dealer options; Truckman Aerotop SL with side windows, mud flaps, tailored floor mats with Frog Prince logo, interior wood fascia pack.

EXTERIOR
This amazing limited-edition vehicle from Skoda is finished in factory original Yellow Fun, (Code L651), with contrasting dark yellow bumpers and body kit. Having covered just 17,267 miles from new and been in the ownership of a fastidious Skoda Owners Club member and former Skoda employee, the vehicle is simply outstanding. The paintwork boasts a bright polished shine throughout. All panels are pin straight and free from damage as are the unique trim sections, body kit and quirky Frog Prince decals. Supplying dealer number plates remain with the car. The factory optional and very sought-after Truckman Aerotop SL with side windows is fully intact and easy to manoeuvre on and off the vehicle. This idiosyncratic dare to be different Skoda is guaranteed to live up to its name.

INTERIOR
Absolutely fabulous in every respect is this wonderfully peculiar interior upholstered with factory Yellow leather and cloth with Frog Prince logo, reputedly inspired by the Frog Prince fairy tale and a reference to Volkswagen’s partnership with Skoda. Having covered just 17,267 miles from new, the seats are in amazing preserved condition. The matching door cards are as new and the often-discoloured yellow leather to the steering wheel, gear knob, handbrake lever and gaiter remain super-bright. Incredibly, the first owner had the foresight to retain the original floor mats with Frog Prince logo unused and still in the cellophane covering! Standard carpets with a yellow beading protect the carpets front and rear instead. The clever and effortless system of folding and unfolding the perfect rear seats allows this full adult four-seater to be enjoyed whilst retaining plenty of load space storage for whichever adrenaline sports activity you have chosen for the day. The rear seats have three factory seat belts. All equipment operates perfectly including the original Grundig MS201 Skoda branded stereo. Weird and truly wonderous!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Fitted with the time proven 1.6MPI four-cylinder engine with a power output of 73bhp, the fun never stops with a top speed of 101mph and 0-60mph in 12.5 seconds. A spotless clean engine bay features factory stickers and plates clear to see as well as fragile paper labels lost on most higher mileage examples. The five-speed gearbox is light and robust.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The unique seven-spoke alloy wheels are unrestored and in fantastic condition with only faint markings visible upon close scrutiny. For originality purposes the factory Michelin MX80 165/80 R13 tyres remain fitted all round thanks to being stored off the car since new. Dual circuit servo-assisted brakes with 236mm front discs and rear drums offer ample stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Skoda Auto Main Dealer, Tran’s City Car Centre Ltd of Walthamstow, this example was registered new on the 2nd June 1999 and has covered a mere 17,301 miles from new. Purchased in 2002 by the previous owner, Mr Briars, who is a former Skoda employee and was a prominent member of the Skoda Owner’s Club GB. The owner of an eclectic collection of various classic cars of which Skoda’s were the majority, this Fun remained in his ownership for 20 years and the preserved condition is quite incredible. Attending various shows and even used in a publicity photoshoot for Playboy this car is not for the fainthearted! Virtually impossible to source items include a brand-new unopened set of floor mats with Frog Prince logo and an original Skoda Felicia Fun Brochure. The full book pack includes the additional Felicia Fun handbook and there are two sets of keys. In July 2022 at 17,301 miles a cambelt change and service was carried out.

An amazing preserved example of this strange limited-edition Skoda.

Finished in factory Swan White, (Code 1061), the paintwork presents in fabulous condition with a bright uniform shine throughout. All bodywork panels are arrow straight and the underside, sills and wheel arches are structurally perfect. Such is the factory originality of this 13,835 mile example that Skoda afficionados will notice small patches of dark grey primer at each end of the sills and within the wheel tubs where the car would have been secured to the production line during painting leaving these areas unfinished! All trim, etched glass and light fittings are perfect aside from a small crack to the front bumper corner and the supplying Skoda Main Dealer number plates and rear screen sticker remain fitted. Quite possibly the best surviving Skoda Favorit to be found.

INTERIOR
This top of the range GLXi interior features plush contoured seats in polyester trim which are in pristine condition commensurate with the 13,835 miles covered.

All equipment and controls operate perfectly including the factory fitted Blaupunkt Boston CC20 stereo. The luggage area is spotless and even the GLXi standard boot torch remains in place. Perfect modern classic family motoring for those who dare to be different!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES

The wheels are in amazing unrestored condition with clearly defined part number stampings and perfect Skoda centre caps. Factory fitted 165/70 R13 Barum OR52 all-weather tyres are a rare sight on a UK car as UK customers were offered an upgrade to a premium brand Goodyear tyre alternative which most buyers opted for. On grounds of age, the tyres should be replaced if the car is to be used for anything other than display/show purposes. The servo assisted braking system is factory standard and stops the car as it should.
