From the Turin, Italy, desk of our project car department comes this 1960 Lancia Appia coupe. According to the seller, this V-4 powered lightweight Italian rear-drive coupe was only recently awoken from a 20-year barn nap. For those wondering where the other carburetor went, the answer is that the Lancia mill used a single cylinder head to bridge both banks of pistons in the narrow angle V-4 block. Restore for the love of all things Lancia, or spend just enough money to make things mechanically right and drive as is. If taking the latter route be sure to save enough scratch to buy a few gallons of matte clear coat to preserve the barn-fresh look. Spoon some vintage Pirellis onto the hoops, and fine Italian motoring could be yours at a reasonable price.
