With the caption "The 'S' of the Lancia B24S simply means 'Sinistra', or left-hand-drive. Lancia stuck firmly toright hand drive until 1954."

Well almost. There are a few LHD Lambdas amongst others.

Where is this photo from Richard....and roughly what year? Is it a photo of a British registered?
I am wondering if the car is Jacky's B24S Convertible as the driver looks familiar and the colours are correct for the car.

 Aurelia berlinas were available as LHD from 1951.

I have always thought that right hand drive was simply the default situation, left hand drive was available as an option.

I have seen it somewhere, but my brain refuses to tell me where, that different states in Italy had different rules relating to the correct side of the road for driving. Indeed, in some states it varied depending whether you were in the country or the town. Changeover locations must have been interesting!!!!

They were available from the eighth series of Lambda. That's why both front wings were made with a "cut out" for the steering box.  They didn't offer the option on Augustas or Aprilias, even though there's a LHD Aprilia in the Turin Motor Museum (formerly the Biscaretti) which was apparently made just for the museum. I have no idea why! There are at least five LHD Lambdas known to exist. The steering box was very "thin" on those models, as it had to be fitted next to the magneto / dynamo - and there wasn't much room for it.

In Italy they drove on the left until 1922. A few cities - I remember Turin, Milan, Naples and Rome - we allowed to keep to the left for a couple of years while their tram lines were changed.

1987, Midwestern US. I was twelve years old. We opened a barn - these are a couple of the images that I snapped with my Kodak "Disc" camera.

Both cars returned to Italy shortly after.
