1966 Skoda 1000 Mbx
Skoda 1000 MBX
The Skoda Hundred MBX Luxe sour 50. The graceful two-door notable its introduction at the Outside Centrifugal Appearance in Hollands in Border 1966. The wide five-seater with bum locomotive and back bike cause was launched into serial yield in the October of the like class. The modelling delineated the peak of the one-litre year in its day.
”The fabled two-door Skoda Grand MBX with its munificently glassed consistency laureled the winner of the low Czech big output car – the four-door Skoda 100 MB,” says Andrea Frydlová, Caput of the Skoda Museum. “This makes the fomite an significant milepost in Skoda’s chronicle. The yield figures increased importantly end-to-end the Sixties in Mladá Boleslav. Many imperfect technologies in batch yield caught on, including heights pressing die-casting for cylinder and chalk cases, too as gearbox shell.”
The MBX was based on the mass-produced four-door Skoda Grand MB, which boasted a forward-looking monocoque personify and the locomotive was installed backside the compulsive bum axle. Skoda reinforced an wholly new embed in the contiguous neighborhood of the existent mill buildings in Mladá Boleslav for the structure of the Skoda Grand MB at the origin of the Sixties. The new output works comprised mod facilities with more 40 output halls and early buildings on the 80 hectare locate.
The story of the two-door MBX dates cover to 1960 when the two prototypes to the Skoda 990 Tudor were existence reinforced. The exceptional bodywork with distinctly negative-sloping ass pillars that menstruum into the bird’s-eye arse windowpane and two doors with frameless windows was created at the Kvasiny engraft. The torso plate maintained the generous place of the master notchback with an enhanced position purview.

The Skoda Hundred MBX Deluxe was outset presented to the world at the hatchway of the Hollands Drive Prove on 10 Abut 1966. The simulation beguiled the visitors with the originality of its form. The two-door gave the picture of not having a primal column with its extensively glassy surfaces. In fact, the essence column concluded in the midriff of the fomite trunk below the windowpane job, and its narrower amphetamine part could be rolling devour collectively the arse position windows. At this consequence, the occupants could love vivid views and an exceptionally aerial and wide midland.
The Skoda Chiliad MB and the two-door MBX set standards in modern locomotive and driving engineering. In price of locomotive fabrication, Skoda was the beginning European manufacturer always to merged the aluminum die-casting summons in cylinder-block product. The four-speed contagion cause was besides produced victimization this twist method. Therefore, Skoda reinforced on a procedure primitively devised in 1922 by Czech organize Josef Polák, the briny vantage existence importantly shorter yield multiplication.
The Skoda Grand MBX was powered by a four-cylinder gas locomotive with a translation of 988 cm3 and an yield of 38 kW (52 hp) at 5000/min. With an unladen burden of 815 kg and a loading content of 375 kg, the machine reached a top amphetamine of 127 km/h. The fire expenditure was 7.8-8.0 litres of gasoline per 100 km. The car was fitted with two Jikov carburettors as received; an locomotive with a i carburetor was just installed in a few 12 units. The time-consuming gathering of the Skoda Hundred MBX, demanding lots of manual lying-in, began in October 1966 in the standalone procedure incision of the Mladá Boleslav embed, so as not to decompress the independent line. The end 12 MBX models of the tally 1403 of the one-litre variant trilled off the line in former 1968.
In November 1967, the sword’s reach was lengthened to admit the dynamical 1100 MBX Deluxe variation. The locomotive turnout remained unaltered with a translation of 1107 cm3, the reward organism the improve lugging capacity – 81.4 n.m compared to the master 75.5 n.m. Promote improvements included a more knock-down oil heart and more effective chilling. 1114 of the stronger reading had been produced by 1969, handsome a tally of 2517 MBX two-door units. Scorn the comparatively low yield bulk compared to the mass-produced four-door Chiliad MB (443,156 units), this rendering made a substantial donation to the vulgarisation of the Skoda sword in many discreet strange markets. Nowadays, the example is among the almost coveted and extremely precious vintage cars with important admiration in assess. The fabled Takeoveré Skoda 110 R (1970-1980), followed by the Skoda models Garde and Speedy, continued the winner of the attractive two-door MBX adaptation.
