LANCIA ASTURA SERIES 4

4-light saloon, 6-light saloon, cabriolet, various specials.

It has the same engine, but for this one there's a platform chassis. The overhead cam engine only puts out 82bhp, so performance isn't spectacular, especially with some of Pininfarina's gorgeous but overblown creations clothing the chassis. It's still got the hypoid rear axle, and centralised chassis lubrication, and one interesting touch is the rubber roller race supporting the steering column where it passes through the dash.
