History & Provenance

I have owned this cherished vehicle for 15 years. It is registered to me at my home address and i have the log book.

Registered in 1980 this is the desirable Targa model with the superior 2L engine and a Weber carburettor.

I store the vehicle in a heated garage with my other classics and it is not exposed to the elements.

I have the original tool kit, original spare wheel, original lancia stamped handbook and 2 sets of original keys.

For a car that's celebrating its 40th birthday next year its in outstanding condition testament to the amount of time and money invested in it over the years.


This vehicle can only be described as in remarkably smart condition for its age with much time, money and love being invested in it.

The car is mechanically perfect. Both engine and gearbox run faultlessly.

Neutral front wheel drive handling, independent suspension with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

I have fitted a custom made cherry bomb stainless steel exhaust system that carries a lifetime warranty by race specialists Custom Chrome Ltd.

Drives as it should with the distinctive note putting a smile on your face every time.

Many new parts have recently been fitted including starter motor, alternator, Air filter, temperature sensor, new rubber seals all over car to include targa top, boot, and doors , refurbished calipers and new brakes, petrol tank sender, new ignition system with distributer, spark plugs & rotor, mats, wipers, full rad flush and engine service.

Carburetor was refurbished by Omnicron Engineering.

A full engine flush, filter and oil change were performed 100 miles ago at 33922 miles at the same time as the MOT. Brand new battery with 3 year warranty added 4 weeks ago.

MOT conducted 2 weeks ago next one due 11/6/20 by which time it will be MOT exempt.

Passed latest MOT with no advisories.

Body work

This is the most desirable and best looking version of this car being the 2 door convertible featuring a Targa top roof panel, a roll-over bar and folding rear roof. The styling is unique.

Finished in the best colour, 'Rosso Red' the exterior is in stunning overall condition with no rust, scratches or dents. The finish glows and is a highly unusual shade of red.

Colour coded Fold down rear section made at great expense by Roger Davies Coachworks of Birmingham.

It is in excellent order with no holes or stains as vehicle has always been stored in a garage. I even have a colour coded cover for the rear fold down section.

All Wheel arches are in great order.

Super rare front / back original chrome bumpers are in perfect undamaged condition.


Very Hard to find original Lancia alloys have been fully professionally refurbished by Perfection Alloys Midlands with a mirror polished chrome edge and recess with sparkling silver painted and lacquered face.

Wheels are in mint condition with not a scratch on them. Lancia center caps all round.

All 4 premium tyres are in excellent order with plenty of tread on them. 4 Wheel laser alignment has also been recently done.

Brakes and calipers and are in excellent order.

Interior & Coachwork

The dash and instrument panel and vents are all in perfect condition with no cracking.

Seats are upholstered in original black ribbed leatherette which is in remarkable condition with no damage, rips or holes.

New mats.

Overall the interior is in clean as new condition.


No Problems to report.

Original Blaupunkt radio cassette is present and has been fully refurbished. Its in perfect working order as is the original clock. Even Original cigarette lighter is present and working.

What it is

A vehicle that would sit well at any show or in any collection anywhere.

Mechanically and aesthetically sorted Ultimate Hipster / Retro Classic Vehicle that will turn heads, increase in value and is thrilling to drive both as an everyday vehicle or to display at weekend shows.

This vehicle can only be described as a top collector quality example of a classic Lancia with much time, money and love being invested in it over the years.

After being invited to display it at the NEC motor show alongside modern supercars i was told by the Lancia Motor Club that it had to be one of the finest surviving examples anywhere.

Its a piece of motoring history that's an investment and will only appreciate in value.

What it is not

This car is not a ‘barn find, or ‘honest project’ that will never be completed due to the ridiculous amount of time and money it takes to properly resurrect an old heap.

A banger with little or no history belonging to someone with 2 months ebay history that is hiding a myriad of structural / mechanical / electrical faults that will bite you within the first week of ownership. You can find these for less money depending on how many holes they have in them and what is missing / not working.

Number Plate shown on car will be placed on retention prior to sale.

This is a Cherished vehicle from a private collection that has been meticulously cared for and looks the business. There’s nothing left to spend on, just get in and enjoy.

Cream Rises To The Top!

It turns heads everywhere it goes and you will receive endless compliments whenever you stop at the fuel station.
