Well spotted Brian !!

What a beautiful little thing, and appears to be unrestored to a large extent.

It is a pity there is not at least some Lancia elements in the body/frame, particularly a sliding pillar front axle.

That's made MY day.  Shows how a "special" can still look good on a long wheelbase and steel wheels.  Just had to check about when the five speed boxes came in, wiki says the third series.

Anyone else think that mascot on the back is doing a wee into the tank?

For me the Fiat chassis (if it is) is no issue, but I don't think that's 509 front suspension...

Anyone recognise the instruments, wheel, or peddles?

The Aurelia B20 GT and the Flaminia 3c also look rather tasty!
