Just noted this in this months Classic Cars magazine, only two Lancias, an Appia and his own Integrale, but lots of other juicy Italian offerings!

And a Motom !
Almost a Lancia,  a very modern design by Battista Falchetto, the designer of the Lambda

(I also like the Fiat 124 coupe in that sale, looks like a nice car!)

It's seized and in a right state Frank. And it's been for sale for months on gumtree and eBay. Not for me although someone will most likely buy it for a mobile pizza oven.
Plenty in Italy but most are restored.

I was thinking of going to this auction as there were a couple of Lots apart from the Ercole which might have been of interest and as it happens I was going to be in the UK on the day.
But..... only this week after a couple of years of looking on and off I have finally found a good 1957 Ercole here which is complete, a runner and the right sort of price. It has just been delivered here and we are very excited.
I don't need to bother with the auction now but it will be interesting tom see how much the Ercole goes for.
Our new addition should prove to be useful for a variety of agricultural type uses here once I have fully checked it over and tidied it up a bit. I think it will also be great fun if a little slow but it came with a set of chains so good in the snow?

That is brilliant Chris!!!  How lovely to at last get an Ercole after waiting for so long. I hope you and Jacky get a lot of fun out of using it!!!

By the way, do you drive it or ride it?Huh?

Result! Your patience paid off in the long run, how many near misses did you have or nothing you'd trawled through ticked enough of your boxes?

Brilliant !

You will have a ball ...... cab on or cab off ? I found that it was too noisy with the cab on, plus I like the wind in my hair

Thanks Simon,
I think I will probably take the cab off to give the engine a good clean and going over but I did really want a cab in reasonable condition so I might refit it later.
I hope to have time to have a proper play with it next week sometime but we are very busy pruning at the moment so the Ercole will have to wait.

Chris,

Out of interest what else caught your eye in that sale?   Do keep us posted with progress.
