SODOMKA SUR­PRISE

Classic Sports Car - - Lost & Found -

Ev­ery June, the east Bo­hemian town of Vysoké Mýto in the Czech Repub­lic holds Sodomka’s Mýto, a trib­ute to lo­cal coach­builder Sodomka, which bod­ied a wide range of chas­sis. Na­tion­alised af­ter WW2 and re­named Karosa, it pro­duces Iveco buses to­day.

Reader Ivan Pachl at­tended this year’s cel­e­bra­tion and spot­ted a bizarre three-wheeler, which ar­rived on a trailer but was sub­se­quently driven around the town square. “The fu­tur­is­tic ve­hi­cle was built in 1967 as a styling ex­er­cise by ap­pren­tices of the Karosa fac­tory,” said Pachl. “It’s pow­ered by a two-stroke Jawa 350cc en­gine good for 70kph.”
