Lot 222: 1963 Lancia Flavia Vignale Convertible

Spirit of Motoring, Coys (29 September 2005)

For many decades, Lancia has been synonymous with innovation and quality engineering. Many automotive firsts have been credited to the marque, such as V6 engines and independent suspension to name just two. At the Turin motorshow in 1960, they introduced the Flavia with many advanced features, notably a flat four engine, front-wheel drive with front suspension consisting of unequal length wishbones and all wheel disc brakes. The 1500cc engined saloon proved a popular choice on the domestic market, even before the introduction of an 1800cc engine in 1963, with consequent increased performance. In 1963 Vignale introduced the Convertible, this being a four seater with the same 1800cc, 90bhp engine as the Coupe. Production of the convertible stopped after 4 years in 1967.This left hand drive 1963 Vignale drophead offered here is finished in silver with blue interior and is described by the vendor to be in good condition. The car has spent considerable time in California and South Africa where it has certainly benefited from the dry climate. The car was imported into the UK from South Africa in February 2004. With V5 and current MoT valid until late September 2005, this elegant model will certainly provide graceful open air motoring for its new owner.
