Just when I've splurged on the Saviem and the LD (oh, and the Trooper I bought last week), I receive a second chance offer on this.

Can anyone lend me some money? Oh, and a barn?

Hmmmm. I think its going to have to be a loan off a mate or a credit card job. Can't let this one slip - not in that colour. A truly fantastic car - whats the engine like? Whats it like structurally?

Engine is an unknown quantity as not bee run for some time, but I'm expecting that it would have issues as it's a V4 and they don't take too kindly to long periods of standing around. Structurally it's going to need a few bits of welding but by the standards of 36-year-old Lancias it's not too bad at all. It's a one-owner-from-new car so probably been well looked after.

Wonderful. Where will they all live when you move, though...you've got to keep lovely motors like these away from the sticky-fingered populace really.

Its a beautiful thing OK, I bet its the sort of car where once youve clocked up a few hours behind the wheel, you'd want to drive nothing else.

Gorgeous little bricks - I've been ogling a few over here, usually more money than I have though and it would/might have to act as a 'daily driver' (or second bedroom for me), living on the street. Don't think it would like that.

These are all valid points, but is it still worth £410 if the engine's Donald Ducked? As it might well be having sat since 1982. I can't see decent used Lancia V4s being particularly easy to come by. Decisions, decisions...

Is the engine goosed?I bet a pound it will come to life without too much pain, if it had been stored somewhere damp the body would have dissolved years ago. It might be sticky but a bit of diesel wanged down the bores and some turning over with a spanner, I bet you'll get a result. Carbs might need some TLC though, I can see them leaking like sieves when some fresh pez reaches their dried-out seals + gaskets.TBH it still is a little more than i'd like to pay.... but then I would probably save £50 by buying one in France then spending £300 picking the damn thing up.

I'm secretly looking at this one from 1968 even though I shouldn't... bids from 1500 euro. But then I would have to store it far far from home etc. Grrr.

I'm bang in there with Mr B. Car looks too good to have been stored badly -so unless it went in seized or overheated etc -I'd expect it to free off OK. Carbs though will be a royal pain in the butt -difficult when used and in fine fettle. But the club is full of helpful types.....
