I have been doing some research on the various type of Superjolly recently for a friend.
I realised that there was not a complete list of the body styles online or in any other publication,
with their different type numbers.
The data in the pictures below is from the 'Lancia Superjolly Istruzioni per le riparaziono'  (Repair instruction manual)  
The total number of Superjollys produced of all types was 2,947.

Thanks for the extra photos Frank, the Chassis number types for these are covered in my list.
I saw the Car transporter at the Duemila Route auction in November 2016, (The photo you have posted is one that I took) There was no makers mark for the body, but I thought it looked rather heavy, so much so that there wouldn't have been much payload capacity. It was built on the longest wheelbase chassis, Type 315 410.
The open top bus, or SPIAGGINA that you have labeled as a beach buggy is one of two built by the factory to take visitors around Chivasso. The other one as seating around the back, bench style and was offered for sale by Coys at their Legende et Passion auction in May 2016.

Yes this is the one that belongs to my friend, that I have already put a link to on this forum
https://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=10669.0
It is a Furgone, i.e. van, not a camper as you have put on the photos taken from his website.

Ask Louise Kennedy about them and you'd buy it tomorrow, ask Jason and you'd rather a hole in the head.

Isn't that just fabulous, if only I'd have gotten one before the prices went skyward for available projects.

I can say from first hand experience, having driven both Jolly and Superjollys that unfortunately the Jolly is just a bit too slow with a heavy body and small engine. The Superjolly whilst not quick is much better to drive, you can even get to 60mph in one!
I have seen the Superjolly for sale at European Classic Cars, I don't think it has ever been a camper, there is no sign of anything ever fitted in the back, it is actually remarkably original and looks like it has had an easy life.
If it were mine (And no I don't need a project) I would cut the back off, put a back on the cab, and then get a company who specialise in car transporters (like this https://jdbodies.co.uk/ ) to put a body on it. (They do it for 1500!!).

Judging by what the one that sold at the Duemila Mille Route auction made, it would even make economic sense.
