1935 Lancia Augusta

Older restoration: smart condition requiring some recommissioning after a period off-road; sound bodywork; lots of bills - £14k spent 2012; UK registered example from new

The continuation buff logbook for this smart Augusta takes its history back to 1966 when it lived in Edgware, London. It was first UK registered on 25th September 1935 and was registered JR 3864, the number it wears today.

Copious bills on file date from the late 1970s, showing a comprehensive restoration including major engine work - rebore, reground crank and new pistons etc. By this time it was in the hands of Mr Gunner who lived in Hampshire.

The car was retrimmed in around 1980 and arrived in the hands of the vendor's father in 2007, a prominent Lancia enthusiast and collector.

He commissioned a major overhaul in 2012, which included fresh brakes, a suspension overhaul and careful welding of the monocoque body structure. The wings were removed, much cleaning and painting taking place and the car resprayed. New tyres were fitted at this time.

The itemised bill for this came to nearly £14,500, more than the low estimate the car carries today! We don't know how much use it got once it returned to the collection, although it will have been used carefully and dry stored since then.

Now in need of some gentle recommissioning, it presents very nicely and looks great value. These Augustas offer a tremendous driving experience, covering ground faster and more easily than virtually any pre-war rival.
