A T 600 urban legend?

Legendary T600 1953 EVO V8 is going to Le Mans
The picture is the legendary T600 1953 EVO V8, the only car of its kind in the world, originally donated to Hanzelka and Zikmund’s traveler on February 13, 1953. This is the EVOluce transition from T600 to T603.
T600EVOV81953J.Smarda
According to severeral sources this T600 from 1953, named by its owners Tatyra T 600 EVO V8, is an evolution model between the T 600 and the T 603, donated to Hanzelka and Zikmund in February 1953, something that could not be confirmed by the Tatra Museum.  In restored form it was believed that it would compete in the Le Mans Classic race as a rarity. Drivers named are Duncan John Arthurs, Josef Smarda and Austen Wells
Austen Wells is an experienced British classic racer.
Duncan John Arthurs is known in the UK for his outings with his T 11 sports car.
T11-1925DuncanArthurs
Question is: Is it an original T 600 transition model? Personally I do not think so though more stories would be welcome.  There are too many odds in the present story. The T 603 is said to have 180 hp. Impossible in 1953 imho. The claimed fact that it is an ex Hanzelka-Zikmund car could not be confirmed by the curators of the Tatra Museum either. Further, Tatraplans fitted with a T 603A engine had louvres in the rear bonnet (on the same position as the T 87) and not louvres low down as on the T 603.

The region is preparing a new museum of cars in Kopřivnice


Sept. 2017. Ostrava – The Moravian-Silesian Region wants to build a car museum in Kopřivnice in Novojičín, which would be followed by a successful exhibition of the Technical Museum. People could get acquainted with the history of Tatra production. Regional representatives today approved a Memorandum of Cooperation between the Region, the City of Kopřivnice and Tatra Trucks on this project, Deputy Governor Lukáš Curylo (KDU-ČSL) told reporters.

“We would like to have a museum built in the former production hall in Kopřivnice, this is a brownfield that is currently unused, and we have received 123 million crowns from the European Union,” said Curylo.

According to him, the museum should introduce the history of the production of Tatra cars, especially trucks, which are located in the warehouses, and people do not have the opportunity to see them. “The repaired building will feature unique museum exhibits that Tatra has left free to use for thirty years,” said Curylo. The museum could welcome the first visitors in 2020.

The region is counting on the reconstruction of an unused industrial hall, whose environment is also in poor condition. “We were looking for partners to go with us, and in the reconstruction, we started reclamating other communications or halls,” said Curylo.

According to him, Tatra Trucks should modify the space for the well-known Slovak motor gun and with the town the region wants to cooperate in building access roads and parking. The museum will be a branch of the contributory organization of the Novojičínsko Museum.

The Region has already prepared the project documentation. Next year, he wants to choose a contractor. The Kopřivnice Museum is one of the most visited museums in the region and 90,000 to 100,000 people visit it every year.
