Does anyone know anything about the LHD Aprilia in the Italian National Motor Museum in Turin, formerly the Biscaretti Museum? Sorry about the quality of the photos. The lighting was horrid!

John,
Somewhere (if I can find it!) I have my guide from the Biscarreti from when we visited in 2004, I'll see if that has anything about it in there.

the passenger is denied the option of winding down her window......would be far too hot to travel in ....

The car must have been used and refurbed in the not too distant past;nice instruments , the whole dash has been modified it seems .maybe a second series gear stick, first series steering wheel and recent side indicators which are as much use as a chocolate teapot and shouldn't have been added to such a nice car.

Another possibility is that the car is owned by a beautiful woman, and when she last gave a lift to a man he stole the window winder so that he could demand something in return .

The museum has many nice cars with things like instruments missing. We heard that items could once be stolen to order. I'd be surprised if an Aprilia window winder was on someone's list, but it would't be too difficult to find another! The museum has many shortcomings, like where are all the other Lancias?  Like not much mention of Biscoretti himself, without whom there would probably be very little. Worth a visit, though.
