Many of these panel cars were made by Lancia as they were often used by small companies in order to make quick deliveries around the city.
Unfortunately most of them were scrapped as, once they became old cars, they could not be recycled in the used car market: indeed the few cars remained are basically all in the conditions of the car you see here.
Which is a “Furgoncino” (panel) from 1955 which has been for sure abandoned somewhere for decades, before being exhumed by someone with a good will. The good is that this car has been stored somewhere and not left to the elements; it need a total restoration but it doesn’t seem a rotten car: many parts come with it and many aftermarket spares are available on the market: we have seen restored Appia like this one and we know that they’re worth every cent spent on them.
