The Škoda 1200 was a family car produced by Czechoslovakian automaker AZNP at their plant in Mladá Boleslav. Sedan and station wagons versions were offered. The car appeared in 1952 as a successor to the Škoda 1101. It was the first mass-produced Škoda to use the steel ponton format body.

The car was powered by a four-cylinder 1213 cc ohv water-cooled engine producing at maximum power 36 PS (26 kW) at 4,200 rpm. The four-speed gear-box included synchromesh on the top three ratios, power being delivered to the rear wheels via a jointed prop shaft. Front suspension: Independent using transverse leaf springs. Rear suspension: independent using transverse leaf springs with floating half-axles. Top speed: 105 km/h (65 mph).

The 1200 was available as a four-door saloon, three-door van or five-door station wagon. There were also made about 2,000 ambulances.
