R129 only had a little over 50k miles, it was absolutely pristine. Also the Lancia Flavia is probably one of the more obscure FCA products.

The Towncar has the same Ivory Pearlescent as my Mark VIII but despite being clean the owner clearly is struggling to keep it that way.

Also a red 146 which is always a great sight.

Some Shite I picked out at Goodwood:

These two were rather fit -

Gold plated Shite. Apparently the modern thing behind it is worth a bit? Not sure though -

Haven't seen one of these before and I've no idea what it is as I didn't really look - a Fiat of some kind. Handsome beastie though -

A Nova that wasn't on its roof at time of recording -

And finally, a god tier automobile in my eyes - a 635CSI with manual box. It was minty mintola and had been in the family for 25 years. Utterly sensational -

That is a Series 1 E24, built on the platform of the E12 Five. They were built up to April 1982. The rustproofing of these early ones wasn't very good, so there aren't many UK-market ones left. I once stumbled across an open yard in Claygate which had a number of S1s and the earlier E9s just sitting there rotting. All gone now.

The front airdam / spoiler is not correct for the car; it's been taken from the later Series 2. To be strictly correct, the dam should be a plain moulding, with the front fogs (Hella) mounted on separate brackets in front of it.
