Appia S1 - 2006 Turin centenary Car of the Century


WWW
« on: 19 February, 2015, 08:33:29 AM »

I have sinned. Looks to have last been on the road circa 1973 (the last tax disc is on the dash, but I can only read '197...' In the pic). Story is that it has been in storage (along with a lot of other cars from the collection) for 30 years while the family fought over inheritance.

And look what I got at Automotoretṛ to put on the boot lid (it lights up, and was a period accessory for Appias and Aurelias!). For some reason it has come out all squashed in the pic, but it isn't really like that!

The car's not quite as good as the other one (it's got S2 sidelights and headlight rims, and it has been reupholstered in nasty 60s vinyl). But I have seat covers (LOTS of seat covers), and also spare S1 sidelights that I got off Ron Francis years ago for the other one - and the accessories on it are to die for (rear number plate surround, bumper overriders, crankcase breather, St Chris on dash, floor mats, horn...).

Given that I'd quite like to stay married, I should probably have kept away from Turin last week, but I can never walk away from an unrestored S1 Appia...

Thanks! You just can't beat S1s! Is yours the brown one that was being sold by the guy from Cambridge who acts as an agent for Nervesauto? I was tempted by that one too!

If the wife isn't looking, next weekend  Wink

Actually, I've managed to get her to agree to come with me, so I'm taking the car trailer next Saturday and we'll make a weekend of it - we've just found a really nice little family-run hotel near the town centre that does B&B for 38 euros, and Turin is only 175 miles from home now so it won't cost much to fetch it! Mind you, I am in Stafford at the moment, so it's a heck of a lot more than 175 miles from here!

Can't wait to start plastering it with tasteless accessories sorry recommission it and get it running...  Smiley

Sadly the Augusta had gone (these are the pix he sent me - I forgot to take the iPad!). But he had some fantastic stuff, and all in lovely unrestored condition. My favourite was a 1934 Bianchi S9, which is €30000, or about €29000 more than I could afford. But I might have broken my 'only Appias' rule if I'd had a spare €30000 on me. I'll post a pic if I can find it.

My other Appia also has a serious horn - I think it was a popular fitment back them, to help with the 'GETTA OUTA MIA WAYA' that you needed to make progress in the 50s. It seems to work off the manifold vacuum. Should be fun...

I once got stopped by Mr plod when driving a 1940's Wolseley fitted with something similar who considered it "Somewhat Excessive"

Fantastic find, i`m really envious as i have been thinking of getting an Appia to sit alongside my 815 Coupe.

Just for the future, how difficult is the import to the UK, and what did it involve, as although I collected mine from Italy, all the importation stuff was sorted out by someone else, and I am interested in going over to buy, and drive back another car.

No real problems, Bob , except DVLA would not accept my documentary evidence for an age-related plate because everything I had was all in Italian (no doubt in the future they will only accept documents if they are in Welsh!); as long as you car's identity numbers are accessible, the LMC can resolved things.

Looks very nice! I agonised over it for SO long (he's had it for sale for about 3 years), but in the end the money didn't materialise. It hasn't now either, but I couldn't let this one escape. I love your plastic peak number plates - nowadays everyone has pressed aluminium, but back then everyone had plastic peak, and they look much nicer.

The DVLA used to be pussycats, but apparently since NOVA they have got a lot more awkward and less competent (refusing to accept documents because they are in a common, European, foreign language is incompetent at best and bigoted at worst). As far as I am concerned they can go hang, because I shall be importing mine into France. However, the French DVLA are not renowned for being nice people either...
