In the same way that the automotive world in Spain would not be understood without the Seat 600 in the 20th century Czechoslovakia, vehicles such as the Skoda 1203, a van Born in 1968 and mass produced for almost three decades. In fact, the model was still produced on a small scale until 2017.

This gives an idea of ​​the icon what became this compact van from Skoda. So it is not so strange to see how one of the designers of the brand has decided “reimaginar“the model with this modern design, turning this classic van from the middle of the second half of the 20th century into a modern and versatile camper.

The Czech Transporter, modernized

His name is Daniel Hájek, is currently responsible for the design of the user interfaces of the Czech firm’s models, although it has collaborated in a new and striking Skoda initiative known as Icons Get a Makeover, which is precisely responsible for bringing to the present some of the most historical icons of the Czech firm such as this Skoda 1203.

Skoda

Hájek’s case is special because he has also had a very close bond with this model, since they had one in his family. “We have one in the garden of my grandparents’ house, but it is no longer suitable for driving. It was my first car, so to speak, we used it on our farm, and when I was fifteen they let me start the engine from time to time and drive her through the field “ although the last push to take charge of this “resurrection” came with his friends. “Yes, I discussed it with my colleagues and they told me that if I had experience with the 1203 I could try to reimagine it for the new millennium. But I also think a vehicle like this would be fantastic for the Skoda brand today. “

Tribute to the past without abusing the retro

And so, also taking advantage of the current fever with the Hájek campers, he got down to work and the result can be seen in images. The main lines of the model are maintained, for example in its front with rounded headlights, the front frame or the sloping roof on its sides, but now it has been accompanied by more modern touches such as the elaborate LED lines that run along the front a body that it now features a floating roof format, with a top that rises to offer more interior space, as well as a more rounded windshield and much more modern and large wheels.

“I wanted my study to make it clear that this is the same vehicle, but I didn’t want it to be too retro.”, Explain. “I designed a vehicle modern that yields tribute to the legend. Thus, even the interior is modern and minimalist, without looking too much to the past, but almost also forgetting about digital screens.

Skoda

Of course, such a model in the current Skoda would be the most interesting, but unfortunately this is still a proposal that seems to not go beyond these sketches, although who knows what will happen in the future.
