Blind project: 1958 Lancia Appia Coupé by Pininfarina


That’s not a news seeing a project car without the lights, both on the front and the rear end: it looks like that headlights and taillights are the most cannibalized part of any car abandoned to its destiny.

This Appia Coupé by Pininfarina has had such destiny but, apart from the missing lights which are not cheap but quite easy to find, it looks quite complete. Indeed we see glasses all around (finding the rear window for this car could be a real nightmare) and a complete cockpit: this is an important area as the interior trims are hard to find and quite often they’re expensive.

The engine bay too is way far from being clean but also here we see (as far as we see by the photos) all the correct components in their places: this car has been parked many years ago and of course it needs a total restoration including a rotisserie job to fix the rust on the sills and, we guess, on the floors which will need to be replaced or patched). After all that’s not a bad start for a restoration project: we believe that the asking price is a little bit high but it seems that the seller is willing to accept offers. Find it for sale at £6,000 (today $8,500) here in Sesimbra, Portugal.
