LANCIA APPIA SERIES I/II

Saloon.

Delightful little car with compact V4 engine (38bhp, Series I; 43bhp, Series II), unitary body (at first incorporating some aluminium panels), and classical Lancia front suspension. Looks like an Aurelia, but mechanically simpler (beam rear axle, conventionally-located 'box, outboard rear brakes). Too expensive ever to catch on here, but a rust-free one would be a desirable property. Series II has notchback styling and slightly longer wheelbase.
