I am still waiting for the info on my Aprilia Cabrio, I made the request in Feb last year, asked again in August and December, had the 70 euros debited from my account before Christmas .......

When I asked for the same thing for the Aprilia berlina several years ago it came back within a week - progress !

Is there an Italian Aprilia Club ( like the excellent Italian Appia Club ) who might help I wonder?

Yes Brian, but if someone is prepared to pay and they still don't have any info it does not work.
The Lancia Club Italy inspected your car, supplied you with a "passport" and a grille badge which was numbered, all for free (I think).
I have it for my car.

ACI do/did this service in Italy and it is certainly not free. FCA is now offering this service (for a tidy sum) providing a dossier and certificate etc after a detailed examination of the car by a marque knowledgeable technician (I will not use the word engineer). This service obviously requires the car to be present. It still is not a guarantee that the technician knows everything they should about the car.....

What Simon and others have been trying to buy is a certificate of origin which simply is a statement of the production top level data against a (any old) chassis number given to FCA to be certificated.

What is depressing is that FCA cannot perform this simple task without a lot of headache.

I am rather less than pleased with the Certificate for my Appia. They are unable to confirm the original engine number - i have no reason to believe that in the car is not original, but it would have been nice to have it confirmed - the original colour is quoted as Beige, when the evidence would suggest that it has always been Marrone, and the build date quoted is three months after the car was first registered! It's almost as if they have investigated the wrong car. At least the trim details are correct!

Response form enquiry on my Theta.

Dear Mr Williamson,

With reference to your request I inform you that there is no information on your car, we are sorry but unfortunately in the past the Lancia Museum, which managed the Lancia archives, did not keep any production register or other list of Lancia Theta.   

Best regards

Maybe the chassis # is different too?Huh? Have you taken this up with them as a complaint/quality control?

This saga comes across as one big laughing stock!

Advertised in all it's glory full page across a host of classic car magazines and motoring journals it offers absolutely nothing for a number of it's important models- in particular the Fulvia- Embarrasing to say the least!

I bet all the details are all there somewhere which is probably in the offices of Lancia Club Italy if they still have one.
I know the archive was moved there years ago, and Enrico Masala assisted letters and enquiries being forthcoming, he is no longer there.
I suspect the missing files are somewhere in Mirafiori.
