With the engine in that position you can literally do running repairs.

Somebody told me today at Padova that the reason all these desirable Lancia  (and Alfa Romeo) Lots are being offered without reserve is that they have been confiscated from someone and are being sold in lieu of debts. This also would explain why there are finished and unfinished projects.
Certainly there are some desirable cars being auctioned - very tempting.

Louise and Jason are very quiet. Do you think they are counting their money for the fifth time surrounded by smashed piggy banks?

Apparently no transmission in the SuperJolly transporter.

Chris Is the gear lever just for show? I saw this on another car (Fulvia Z) for sale the other day so maybe its new thing.

On an unrelated point I love the "tray" in front of the steering wheel. Just right for a cappuccino and croissant...

I notice they put an estimate of between 5,000 and 10,000.

Still having to buy lottery tickets mind....

Been very remiss not checking up on the forum so missed this discussion!  Yes we're aware of the SJ transporter and can confirm that sofas are being checked and double checked again.  It would be mighty useful (if/when it works) given we're currently transporterless with 5 race cars.  But the auction is getting a lot of interest and the low estimates are likely be blown out of the water so it's doubtful there will be many bargains.   As Chris says, this is a seized collection and the government have a tax bill in the tens of millions to be paid...

I can't speak for the condition of it overall but can confirm everyone's comments re the engine location- as well as the engine compartment, you need to take the passenger seats out to get decent access as well.  It does look in reasonable condition but as per Gino, looks can be deceiving and parts are super tough to get so it will be interesting to see the underneath condition etc.

We'll be heading over to Milan as we've been thinking about a long weekend away before Christmas anyway and haven't visited Italy this year so no other excuse needed.  Other than a big red truck....😉

You know me too well Tim!  Actually I have refrained from looking at the bikes and motorbikes - I must be getting sensible in my old age!!

So we are currently in Milan and have taken a look round and watched a few of the lots go.  First thing to say is that it's simply heaving.  Someone told us there were 3 hour queues to register yesterday and that rings true with how packed it is.  The auction area is constantly rammed full of people and prices look very high.  Only seen two Lancia lots go and both for triple their estimates so as expected no bargains.

As to the SJ well it's had a respray so looks quite smart (some issues especially around the windscreen) but it's clear the brakes aren't working (story of our lives!) and it looks like the clutch needs replacing as there's a new kit boxed up in the van.  We'll have a think about it as we know how expensive it is to get the brakes working and there's a lot else that could be wrong.  I think a lot of people will get lulled into thinking it doesn't need much given the paintwork so I'm sure it will go for a lot over estimate.

Stiil on the upside I find an original and barely opened Super Jolly parts manual which we purchased for Gino.  Dikappa and kind Beligium friends gave me a photocopy of the manual which I cherish but it's nice to have an original to keep with Gino.

Please look out for the Moto Guzzi mountain mule and if there is space on the back of the Super Jolly transporter, drop it off on your way home ....

Hope you have fun !

Is this an original Lancia Superjolly body option or a much later modn?
And if the transmission is missing (?) what are the chances of finding one with the correct final drive?

I wonder why the transmission would be missing, seen the engine is supported by it, it seems strange it has the engine in a normal position.
