Shame the rear wheel arch is angular and not curved to match the front ones.... I wonder how many times over estimate it'll go for?

There was a gearbox in it when I saw it!

It was the auctioneers who said there was no transmission!

does anyone know if the Super Jolly used the Flavia subframe and cast alum suspension towers, or were unique ones made for it?

Well the winning bid was 55k Euros plus premium.  Prices flew up from 20k and there was a lot of interest.  I'm guessing that someone has bought it to transport their lovely Ferrari, Mase or Lancia and won't be put off by the lack of clutch or brakes.  Small fry if you own an expensive Italian super car!

What's very interesting is that from the spare parts in a box in the cab, it's clear this was once an ex-military vehicle which someone has bought and spent a fair bit to get in a tidy but not yet useable state.  I can't wait to see it finished and in good use.

And if anyone knows who bought it, we'd be very happy to help out with any advice needed and to invite them to our very limited  SJ club - just me and Dikappa for now ;-)

Geoff, the front subframe on the Superjolly is the same as the Flavia, but the suspension, although of the same design is all much larger. For reference see this article from a 1988 LMC Journal http://www.lancia.myzen.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=8486.0

The subframe is indeed a standard Flavia item, but that's about it.  The alu suspension towers are of a much more heavy design, the spring is much heavier, and all other items are adapted for the wider track.
Steering ball joints are the same, suspension ball joints are not and very hard or impossible to come by I've learnt...  Wheel bearings are much heavier, and housings are wider to accomodate them.
Also the engine inlet manifold is of a lower built, fan drive is from the crankshaft, and thus thermostat housing is also different...in short it's a real Lancia!

But you get a free tyre change machine with it!
Hope he at least will repair the front seat, or is that extra?

I know you're talking about the Super Jolly but I'm still recovering from the 30,000 being askied for a 1.3 Fulvia Monte Carlo below.

It seems that the only tool these fast-buck traders have is a camera.
Fancy not even bothering to unload the tyre-changer!
