The B10 berlina remains should be either interred or cremated...........

The Augusta is only marginally worse than mine was when I bought it in 1981. It will be a labour of love as the cost of restoration of an Augusta is not fully compensated in final value - even a March.
However if I were 20 years younger..........
It would be nice to know the chassis number just to see if there is any possible LMC history etc.

Ran when parked  ;D

Not sure you can describe that as an Aurelia  if less than half remains!

FYI when I see things that interest me then I record them in the database with details of when it was for sale, how much, mileage, condition - it has been surprising how many have re-surfaced a few months later :) My interest is the non-integrale deltas (as that's what I know) and a good example will be on the NEC stand next month as I recorded it two years ago when on eBay - and now it's part of the club :)

But, at the least you do need a chassis number or registration otherwise we'd just end up with a database of 'unknowns' :) But, again, I suppose if there are very very few examples it may not be much of a problem there !

The Aurelia is a Halloween special.

The Augusta looks an exciting prospect for someone.  Substantially "more there than not".

It doesn't look like a parts car to me. Definitely worth restoring for lots of reasons, eventual value being one of them. You could probably buy a running Augusta saloon for what this project will go for!

Mike Wheeler and I will be there tomorrow. If I were 20 years younger, I would have been very keen to get it.

Enjoy your day John, are you just watching or are you after something?

If I were a few years younger I too would have been bidding for this. Please let us know the results.

I can't believe these prices.
I am trying to sell a restored aurelia for 30000.
Then someone pays that for pieces and the price for the Augusta is amazing.
Maybe I should get mine back into pieces:)

Breath taking, am going to cover my panels in lichen, distress them a bit more, dip all mechanical parts into etching acid....double their value!

12k for the Augusta is less than I thought it would sell for , but imho a fair price , if a standard saloon is worth 5k for restoration then I suppose the price is about right  , rare car however needs someone who likes a challenge  to put it right ,

Still think the augusta is a worthwile and rewarding project, but hey, I managed to stay away (I'm already well known enough in Belgian Lancia circles as the keeper of hopeless projects)

An excellent result, well done.

I hope we will be able to see some more photographs as things get uncovered.

I think you might be jumping to the wrong conclusions. I didn't buy any of it. (Too old!) perhaps one day we will find out who did.

A reliable source has told me that the Augusta was sold to a buyer in The Netherlands.

Was anyone able to find the chassis number and indications of a Registration number?  I took an interest in March Augustas in the 1970s when I bought a load of old Lancia spares from Middleton and Townsend in Edinburgh.  They were then the oldest Lancia dealer in Scotland.  The spares included  parts of a green March Augusta that had been broken up in the 1960s.  I found the owner and the car was 34-1840 in the list I offer below.  This list is well out-of-date and I would welcome revisions to it.

Paul,
The actual chassis plate was missing, but there were traces of the chassis number in the rust on the scuttle, but not clear enough to make out without a wire brush!
