Footnotes

  • Resident in Portugal since new, this Lancia Lambda limousine has not had a complete restoration in its lifetime. The bonnet, wings and boot lid appear to have been repainted many years ago and are nicely patinated, while there are no signs of damage anywhere. All the Weymann body joints are present and the structure is still covered by the original material. Important parts like the correct door locks, hinges, securing bolts and Weymann license plates are still in place, indicating that in all probability the body has never been taken off the chassis.

    The chassis and underside are good, having recently been sympathetically refurbished by dry-ice blast-cleaning and Lanolin preservation. A lot of the structure has never been dismantled and there are bolts that have never been undone since the car left the factory 80-plus years ago. Even the exhaust system appears to be the original mild steel one, showing only minor signs of repair.

    The suspension, brakes, engine and gearbox are in fine running condition, having benefited from careful servicing and maintenance. Worn parts have been replaced whenever necessary and a modern fuel pump installed for safety and reliability (original system with car). The electrical wiring would be improved cosmetically if some of the plastic-insulated repair sections were replaced with period-correct fabric-insulated cable. On the road the Lambda drives smoothly and effortlessly with good oil pressure and smooth gear shifting, the engine and transmission making no unusual noises.

    The entire interior is well preserved, the inlaid woodwork of the door cappings being in good order. Items such as the door lock opening straps have survived in original condition, while the leather strops to adjust the angle of the backrests have been carefully restored using as much original material as possible. All the original leather seats are well preserved and even the carpets are original. The dashboard is well equipped with mostly all original instruments and switches.

    Recently re-commissioned, this Lambda has had only five owners from new and has been in a private collection since 2011. It was last registered in Portugal in 2008 and comes with Certificado de Automóvel Antigo (CPAA) and old Portuguese registration documents dated 1928, 1937 and 1958. This car does not need a restoration and waits only for a new owner willing to maintain its exceptionally original condition.
