The Škoda 1202 This two basic body styles, the open bed pick-up and the STW station wagon. It was either a five-seater passenger four-door car, used as a family car produced as a station wagon with a distribution of weight for all roads with 35.3% front axle, and larger 64.7 % at rear axle, or Commercial vehicle light panel van and pick-up (Utility) and also special builds by Czechoslovakian automaker AZNP at their subsidiary plant in Vrchlabí.
The station wagon had an unusual body with one door on the driver's side and two doors on the passenger side. A saloon (sedan) version was never produced. It was introduced in 1961 as a successor to the station wagon and pick-up versions of the Škoda 1201 and closely resembled the slightly smaller Octavia Combi.
The car was powered by a 1221 cc four-cylinder ohv water-cooled engine delivering 34.5 kW (47 PS) of output, inherited from its predecessor, and which later also found its way into the company’s Octavia model. The four-speed gear-box included synchromesh on the top three ratios, power being delivered to the rear wheels via a jointed prop shaft the final drive as spiral bevel with final ratio of 5.25:1. A top speed of 100 km/h (63 mph) was quoted as from 1969, the engine now had higher power.

Although volumes were never high, the model remained in production until 1973.
