Hello colleagues,
My name is Rossen Kolev, from Bulgaria.
I would like to present you a tables with paint code of Š105, 120, 125, 130, 135 and 136. The tables are made by me and a friend of mine – Todor Tomov.

Seeking the code of the paint on my 120L, I came across quite sources, that information in it was different. Then we found in Internet most original brochures of the proposed colors for the Š105, 120, 125, 130, 135 and 136.
To be accurate, clear and complete the information, we made a table. It can be used to learn in what year, what kind of modifications and what colors were available. The sources of information are not random, but only official issues.
We used the help of employee of the museum in Mlada Boleslav, who sent us a few missing facts. She also paid attention to some spelling mistakes (in the Czech version) and our gaps, and then we sent her the latest version of the table. Meanwhile, the table was made in English and then shaped in four different ways to make it suitable for use in various ways and occasions (information in the four tables is the same). For the different modifications are used the factory indexes:
type 742 – for 105, 120, 125 and 130 (sedans, conventionally marked as S1)
type 743 – for Garde, Rapid 120 and Rapid 130 (coupes, conventionally marked as C1)
type 746 – for 135 and 136 (sedans, conventionally marked as S2)
type 747 – for Rapid 135 and Rapid 136 (coupes, conventionally marked as C2)
Here are the tables (in Czech and English):

Hi Maciek,
I would like to ask you for your Skoda - is it an 105 L with rectangular or with round front lights? I am curious about this - is there an original 105 L modification with rectangular front lights and which years it was available?

This is my Skoda.
As far as I know this type of Skoda was produced from 1982 to 1983. It was produced only for export, and that's why I've found German service book behind the rear seat, while I was cleaning the interior. In Poland, there are much more Skoda's with chrome bumpers. Plastic bumpers and rectangular lights (as my Skoda has) are unique.

This is my Skoda...

It looks good! This color (2021 - béžová šampaň) is one of my favorites. My father's first car was 1982 120 L with the same color, but with chrome bumpers.
What modification is your car 105 or 120, L or GL?
Here, in Bulgaria, the black plastic bumpers are very rare, too. There were only S and L modifications of 105 and 120 on the market.

It's Skoda 105L, produced in 1983.
Are there many Skodas in Bulgaria? Was it a popular car?
Do you have some brochures, documents, invitations for Skoda shows?
It's very interesting for me.

These rectangular lights were made between 1981-1983 for 105 L, 120 L and 120 LE.
