I’ve only owned the appia for a short while, my intention was to keep it long term but i’ve lost my storage facility and certainly don’t wish to store the car outdoors so sadly it has to go…. i think the best way to describe the car is from the previous long-term owner’s advertisement, he is a great ‘lancista’…..

“i bought this car around 15 years ago. It had been sat in a garage for many years unused and did the same with me up until 5 years ago. I decided to get the car out of storage and put it on the road as is, as an oily rag / rat look car… the list of repairs are as follows….
fuel tank removed, cleaned and sealed, water pump rebuilt, dynamo and starter motor both rebuilt, new clutch, all brake hydraulics replaced/ renewed / rebuilt, cylinders are all stainless steel sleeved and the car has been upgraded to the later s3 twin leading shoe front brakes, new electric fuel pump, carb rebuilt, new back box, 4 new tyres, new headlamps and rear lamps, there was probably more…..
it does have slight wear in the front lower guides, however, it is one of the nicest driving appia’s that i have ever driven, mechanically the car is strong, engine runs lovely and quiet, gearbox is exceptional, often they can be noisy in 1st & 2nd gear, this isn’t.
body is solid, the rust you see is all superficial and no rot, i have waxed the car regularly with bee’s wax which has helped protect it. Ideally it wants the four wings unbolting, stripping and the whole car painting, being an s2 it benefits from aluminium bonnet and doors which are near perfect, the car is very straight with no major dents and excellent panel gaps, all the chrome, stainless steel trim and bumpers etc are in excellent condition seats are excellent as are the carpets and rubber mats, headlining is a bit scruffy as are the door panels, these are just plain grey wool cloth. Fuel gauge is stuck, i suspect the tank unit is seized.
this is a very early s2 with the early dashboard and side lamps, s2’s are quite rare compared to the later models and these are the last of the cars made by lancia before they went bust so it still retains the desirable shield shape traditional grille. When i bought the car it had a a mix match of wheels in poor/ dangerous condition, at the the time i could only source the alloys wheels as fitted, i now have the correct wheels for the car which will be included in the sale. The car is also very original having all its wiring loom tags etc still in place, i thing the mileage is probably correct and original looking at how unworn the seats are and how it drives, however, i cannot prove this. The cars was imported in the 1970’s from italy, i had to do battle with the dvla registering the car as it’s chassis number did not match their records eve though i could prove its provenance and that their records were incorrect, they issued me with and age related number plate and vin number” (sic)

the car now has some period seat covers (not brilliant) fitted to keep the seats clean and i also have the original vin plate the car was built with…. the dvla really need to get their act together!!!

the car has a has an mot until april 2022

the last picture show the car as imported in the 1970's

the car can be viewed at most times, any questions etc, just give me a call….
