Well this is pretty unimpressive. An ex-Brin Edwards Ardea listed as an Aprilia. About as significant an auction house mis-cataloging as I've seen...

Regardless, it might be a nice car for someone.

William have you pointed out their error, not only is the caption wrong, the complete write up is for an Aprillia.
I saw it when shown his collection by Brin back in the 1990's, at which time it was still in pieces.

I have already contacted Bonhams and pointed out their error; the chassis number they quote is for a Series 2 from c1946, although the photo shows a car with Series 4 bumpers (I cannot see whether it has a split rear window, which would confirm it as a Series 2).

Regardless, it will be an exciting sale.

It is a long time since I have seen so many Lancias in one auction.
The late Brin Edward's collection.
The Amey Lambdas.
3 Lambdas in one sale!

I hope they will go to good owners, and not to the trade.

I agree with your last sentiment Sebastien, wondering whats been the outcomes of recent sales of   classic/vintage Lancias, ie how many have gone to the trade versus private hands?

PS I also enjoyed re-reading your 2007 article of the first 3 years on Lambda ownership, was there a second instalment since or doing another one covering the last 10 years?!

Might be faulty memory or lack of lighting, but I thought Brin's one was grey?
I'll have to see if I can find the photos.
