The 1300 Coupe will be returning to the city and land of it's birth in June this year. My son Jack is living in Trento for six months, so this seemed the ideal opportunity. Judging by the annual mileage over the years evidenced by the MOT certificates this is most likely it's first trip home;

12th June: sail Hull to Zeebrugge.
13th June: drive to Swaibische Halle, Southern Germany
14th June: drive to Trento via Austria and the St. Bernhard pass.
17th June: drive to Turin staying in the Lingotto Tech Hotel (part of the former Fiat factory).
19th June: drive to Dijon via the Alps (not sure which pass this takes us through. Is it where Vincenzo tested his cars?)
20th June: drive to Brussels.
21st June: drive to Zeebrugge and sail home to Yorkshire.

My plan is to update this thread with the preparation then our progress if we can get onto the internet.

2058 miles in total with complete reliability from the car in temperatures almost constantly in the high thirties or even more. Just some fuel vaporisation on our day trip to Lake Garda while driving in slow traffic causing some hiccupping on acceleration, otherwise perfect, and running better all the time, 38 years of crap finally blown/burnt out of the engine and carb no doubt. Two days of empty French D roads was Beta heaven...

I was quite apprehensive when I set off with tools and a parts box both of which were of course untouched. I would certainly have needed some serious shade to do any work....

I'm going to write up this wonderful trip in due course, but for now some teasers; the car adjacent to the former Chivasso plant where it was assembled nearly 39 years ago and on Via Vincenzo near the former Lancia HQ.

Good to hear you had an enjoyable and trouble free trip. I think most people start off apprehensive then as you get a couple of days under your belt at high speed then sitting in hot traffic you realise you've survived most conditions so it should be OK from now on. You certainly hit the hot period which has its pluses and minuses. I can feel the heat in the Chivasso photo with that tiny shadow under the car.

You are right, it was phenomenally hot at Chivasso.
