The Zagato-built Sport coupé achieved first in its class at the 1968, 1969 and 1971 Targa Florio, a second place in its class finish at the 1969 12 Hours of Sebring and first in its class at the 1969 24 Hours at Daytona.
This Lancia had a complete, ground-up restoration by Corrado Patella’s Autofficina Omega in Vicenza, Italy. Their firm is well-known as an Italian marques specialist and the restoration was performed with no expense spared. The paint was returned to the original “orancionni” color of the car when it was delivered new. The 1.3S engine was completely rebuilt, and the seats changed to Zagato Sport style units.
The engine bay and undercarriage were both included in the restoration works. The paint work was done to high standards over straight panels. The brightwork is beautiful throughout and new rubber gasketing everywhere. The bumpers have been removed giving the car a more muscular competition oriented appearance. The car sits on restored Campagnolo wheels shod with new tires. The interior is ‘as new’ with the original gauges, switchgear, and gear shift knob.
The car runs as good as it looks. The rebuilt engine is smooth, crisp, and powerful; mated to a 5-speed that is a true pleasure to shift and very effective brakes. The suspension has the feel of a new car and it is particularly composed over rough road surfaces.
