*Early UK RHD example
*Dry stored
*50 year ownership span with single owner from 1974
*Sold for restoration


First presented at the 30th edition of the Paris Motor Show in October 1936, the Lancia Aprilia was a pioneering design and was one of the first cars to be designed using a wind tunnel. This early UK supplied example was sold in January 1974 to the registered keeper who owned the car for 47 years. A restoration of the car was started some 40 years ago, however only a few panels were removed and the project was put on hold. The car has been in the owner's dry storage ever since awaiting restoration, and is now being sold due to retirement and redevelopment of the storage location. All removed parts are being sold with the car, plus spare components such as a gearbox, engine parts, panels, switches and gauges. The car also comes with a log book, V5, and some paperwork. The engine turns, and the car also rolls easily for loading.
