Note incorrect Lancia badge on bonnet.  The correct HF badges are both present.  I wonder why on this type the HF badge has no elephants.  Wim Oud  Weernink, whom I am coming to think is a little bit overrated as a Lancia guru, incorrectly calls the HF badge an ie badge in his book on Fulvias, Flavias, and 2000s.    His book on Appias is very good, but I am not quite as impressed by La Lancia or by the Fulvia/Flavia/2000 book.

My mechanic likes the car.   He is impressed by the engineering and build quality.  The bodywork issues are fixable.   The car is very complete and appears always to have been well maintained.  The mech is still working on the car and has has not yet discovered what is wrong with the brakes, but has discovered that the steering idler arm needs a repair - lots of play in it at the moment and the car noses to the left when you lift off the throttle.  Repair kit ordered.

We both love the design detail like the clever "keep the rear window clear" airflow thing at the back end of the roof, and the lovely door open warning red lights (only one of which is working, but it is the offside one).

Ah ha: the rear brakes are a bit fottato, and so is the hand brake.  Needs a special tool to to get the hubs off,  apparently.  I will ask the Consortium and Omicron and what not.

Fab, thanks, will check the magazine to see whom to ask about tools.

At least on the Fulvia some of the hub nuts had three slots and some six so might be worth establishing that so Tim can sort the right tool.

Thanks!

Three slots on the inner for the handbrake drum.  Bearing tool not needed at this stage as wheel bearings seem OK.  So, a three slot rear hub tool needed, I think.  I will contact Tim.   I will enquire of the Consortium (I've just joined it ) about hub nuts.

I have in the past re used the hub nuts but a new one won’t do any harm of course.

Panel -





Engine bay.  The exhausts have been flattened off by speed bumps near where they exit the engine.







Front hub, and bits of suspension and subframe.

The fourth owner, who restored the car, has provided some helpful extra details via another forum.    The cloth interior was never grey.  The sales form contained an error.  The rear seat may be original.  The front seats, door panels and headlining were redone in 1989.  The car may have been painted whilst in Ireland and possibly again since then.  The fourth owner made some mods to the front arches to improve rust protection.

OK, it is after 9PM, but if you are of a sensitive disposition, look away now.

Here is the horror of the rusty arch, before and after a temporary repair with filler.
