On reflection, pun intended....why would you photo the inside of a car you're selling through its side window??!!

Either he's lost the key or the door will never shut again. Probably the latter! I'd love a car like this, or preferably an earlier Flavia saloon. There can't be many RHD left. This one will no doubt need loads of work.

This earlier one looks nice, and I rather like the colour

A very under-rated Lancia , in my humble opinion. They were very well built, big , strong and capable cars that could be driven very swiftly (especially the HF) . Fantastic family cars that could be driven 5 up all over Europe with enough camping gear and baggage for a fortnight. Elegant and sophisticated

Yes , I loved them - we had 3 or 4 of them in the late 70s and early 80's  ..... the car I learnt to drive in along with other memories !

Lots of talk about Fulvia Berlinas at the moment - this is another unloved classic that deserves more recognition !

Yes, I know exactly where the car is parked and it has been there for many years, about 5 years ago I did knock at the door to ask about it, there was no reply on 2 occasions I tried.  I have not seen it move, if any one would like to visit it, I can direct them and/or come along if they wish, I suspect it may need a fair amount work, it has been covered up of late which may have preserved the car a little,   I may have some photos I took a while back if anyone is interested.
