I attended the Malaga Retro classic car show and auto jumble today.  As in previous years, there was a small display of cars from the collection of the Museo Automovilistico in Malaga, and one of the three cars was a stunning 1939 Castagna bodied Astura.  As this car is on public display I imagine it is well known to forum members but I thought I'd show a few of my pictures anyway.   

The display card stated (verbatim):
“Lancia Astura 1939, V8 84hp 3000cc.  The Last Work of Vincenzo.
This model was customised for an Italian Countess of the high society, where the famous coach builder, Castagna, did a wonderful work, both inside and out, elegant upholstery, a wooden dashboard and its boudoir with perfumes and make up jars in the back seats.”

How many Lancias can boast a boudoir!
