Racecar trivia: 1959 Lancia Dagrada Formula Junior


The seller of this little racer has posted a photo of a Zagato bodied lancia Formula Junior: in our opinion that photo has nothing to do with the car auctioned.


However it could be really a Dagrada racecar: Angelo Dagrada began to built these cars using a Lancia Appia 1100 engine with an head completely modified by himself: these cars reached even nearly 100 h.p. but, of course, the point is if this car has still the original Dagrada head.


Also, Dagrada used a Flaminia gearbox to mate his engine which was installed slightly transverse to the longitudinal axis of the car: so you must also check the engine mounts to be sure that it is the real thing. Other than that, the seller says that the car needs only to be painted and reassembled: will it be an easy job? Find it for sale here in Palm Desert, CA, with bidding at $20,000 and no bids so far.
