Racing through East Ham, a suburb of the British capital, the classic shown here came into view at a somewhat scrawny garage company. A true Lancia Flavia convertible that had not seen the light of day for many years.
Dozens of years ago the - previous - owner had started a rigorous restoration, but lost interest in the process. Tinkering in a damp shed is not everything ... And then he died. The heirs cleaned up the house, garden and buildings and thus the current owner came into the picture. He received the Italian thoroughbred for a little more than the kilo price Old Iron. Without a license plate, because that tie might have already entered the Kliko in almost all of the time. And let the car be for sale right now (from passing): £ 1.500 say 1.800 euro. With just 'tipping' you will not make it, although this Lancia was not really rotten. The interior, for example, was really spotless ... And ... getting a new license plate is not so difficult in Great Britain. Is just a matter of entering the chassis number on the form, paying £ 23 and waiting four weeks. So if you are interested in a fun (...) 'project', let us know, who knows that business can be done?
