Those lamps look really good on the car Gerard but it might be worth getting a check on the current consumption as the dynamo will be on the edge of it's output with all the lights on plus the heater fan on a chilly day. Don Cross reckons using an Appia in the winter will gradually discharge the battery.

That the lamps would place a strain on the dynamo doesn't surprise me!  An alternator is one of the next upgrades, especially as the broken heater is due to be fixed.

For an Appia alternator check out:
http://www.fossewayperformance.co.uk/dynators-dynamos/
In the latest ALR Newsletter, just received, there is a picture of the alternator for series 1 Fulvia - looks absolutely superb!
Not cheap, but certainly a nice modification for winter use.

Only just come across this thread - what a lovely little car !

- & great to see it being used as intended.

Unfortunately I can't access your wife's video as when I click on the link it says "This video is private" & asks for a password ...

Cheers!  The password is Appia.   The video is quite charming, except for the bits with me in it.

Great!  I shall tell my wife.  She used to make The South Bank Show for ITV but now teaches television at a university, and she had fun making the film on her phone.

The Appia is indeed a time machine.  It has been out a bit over Xmas, and gets jet washed underneath after every trip.

New front plate, to be fitted.





Other jobs upcoming: alternator or dynamo upgrade, heater diaphragm, number plate lamp wiring, radio wiring.


The Appia may be going to live in London, as I have been offered cheap secure car storage near my London flat.  My wife is not all that fond of my Beta, so that will stay in the barn and go on frolics when I am at my country pad.

HNY Jim and many thanks for this.  Mark has been trying his hand at 3D printing one as well.  I think that 3D printing may become a really useful thing for classic car owners over the next few years.

Just watched the video , thanks for sharing. Makes me yearn for the simple thrill of taking a car out for a drive, just because...
And also for why I fear for the electric future, it really won't be the same.
Lovely car, what's not to like.

Thanks!   My wife had fun making the film - an impromptu thing on her phone.

Here is the car visiting some local foals (Italian country Vet Giacomo Herrioto maybe), and also visiting the local Wartburg  (Cold War spy stuff, probably - this Appia appears to have spent some time in Germany).
