Tatra T82 Bus 1937 by Autocult
On Behalf of the National Railroad
In the design of the T82 truck, the
wishes of the military were specifically taken into account. The T82 was fitted
with the proven chassis in tube construction with the Tatra-typical pendulum
axles and leaf suspension. The frame carried a 2.5-liter four-stroke engine in
boxer design, which was forcibly air-cooled by two fans and produced 55 hp.
These horsepower were transferred by eight forward and one reverse gear to the
double-driven rear axle. The truck, which weighed just over three tons, was designed
for a payload of two tons. The military as the main customer ordered the T82
mainly designed as a team bus. However, the open truck, which was only equipped
with a tarpaulin, was not the only option. Also ambulances and busses for the
civilian sector were among available T82 versions. The buses were ordered by
the ‘ČSD’ – abbreviated for Československé státní dráhy – loosely translated ‘Czechosolvak
In 1939, the tender was issued for
a batch of 14 new buses based on the Tatra T72 and T82. In 1939, ČSD awarded
the order for eleven identical buses to the body maker specialists of the company
‘Sodomka’ and the remaining three to the company ‘Peter’.
The design of ‘Peter’ was given an
arrangement of the rows of seats one after the other and at ‘Sodomka’ seats
were installed longitudinally – as was common for intercity buses at that time.
The arrangement of seats was a requirement of the railway company and probably
expressed that the ones dressed by Peter were intended for the inner-city regular

Limited edition of 333 pieces.
A relatively new maker of very well finished resincast models, established in 2015. Very imaginative choice of subjects, often concentrating on the more eccentric episodes in motoring history! Production limited to 333 pieces of each subject, which often means that we get one delivery and that is it, so pre-orders strongly recommended!! Made in China for Germany.
