"RHD Italian registered 1964 6x2, 10ltr diesel with 197hp, Perlini rear steer, restoration project, my barn storage for this Lancia has now been lost so sale required urgently or she will have to be weighed in, which I think will be criminal...."

Totally agree......... save it for Lancia`s sake..!!!!!!!!!!
it may be too much for one person to take on, so what about a group of 5 , thats only £400 each, far more reasonable i`d say.....then it can be wrangled about who wants to have sole possession or not....OR IT WILL DISSAPPEAR !!! Be warned...
i have a small holding that i can store it at, no problem... it can be converted to a hospitality truck for events and even hired out, who knows....Unfortunately i can`t contribute at the mo but would love to help keep it from being scrapped...
Surely its worth saving isn`t it....Huh?

Tempted momentarily to consider this for conversion to a race transporter for my B20. It would be awesome but I am forcing myself to find reasons why this would not work.

Go on Chris!!  It can't be much more thirsty than your V8 tow truck...  With the advancing years a little more space to catch 40 winks between races?

MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE

Can i suggest that we approach the club to purchase it, so it could be used for events, not to sure about the HGV side of things mind, i thought that there was a way around that for older lorries, just a thought.

You would still need a HGV licence to drive it, however I can offer my services!

If someone would check it out thoroughly and report back on how good / bad it is, AND we can find a place to store it for CHEAP, I will consider funding the purchase...  Undecided

Volunteers please!

Guy, see the post from 'Sweeet-twincam' re storage, I'd be prepared to help with funding it subject to the same provisos !! Also, we have to shift it from its present barn to its new storage, that won't be cheap !!!

David,
As you know, Jacky always drives the V8 + trailer + B20 to the races and she doesnt have an HGV! And nor do I for that matter.
On a serious note, i would have thought the club could find a use, volunteers etc for it. It is a one off opportunity after all.

I'd be up for a share, but couldn't store/move. Can't see this scrapped. Maybe we could do something similar to the Appia Consortium. There's a committee meeting Sept 5th and would be happy to raise it there too.

Agree it should be raised with the committee and you would have my backing/support/contribution if it was to be moved forward on the same basis as the Appia pickup.

MY 1600HF IN HEARTBEAT GARAGE


« Reply #11 on: 25 August, 2010, 07:30:39 PM »

Well, we have positive vibes,lets hope we can pull it off, i remember i spoke to the guy who had it at his yard when it was on E Bay as i was considering buying it then, but i then woke up in the shower  Wink, he told me it started right away when he put batteries on it, he also told me it was solid. So heres hoping the club can come to the rescue Roll Eyes

Funds are tight, but I'd be happy to contribute in some way, perhaps we can widen potential donation/ownership to as many members of the club as possible. I can see the aghast looks in the centre of Bristol next April.............

If you've never seen how wonderful Lancia's trucks can look take a peek at: http://www.flickr.com/groups/lancia_trucks/pool/

Am I right in thinking that it's in Stafford? If that's the case I might know somewhere just west of Stafford that could provide potential short term storage - where my Fulvia currently lives along with a collection of old bulldozers and buses.

I suspect if asked, most Members of the LMC would be prepared to put in, say, a nominal £10 towards saving this lovely vehicle, as Lee says it would look great at Bristol and many other events, it would be great at "Classics on the Common" at Harpenden,  where commercials are welcome.
I used to drive HGV's for a living back in the days when I still had hair Cry but no longer have a licence, but it used to be the case (I think) that if it didn't carry goods it could be driven on a car licence, no doubt that's no longer the case, but does anyone know what is the current ruling?
