It looks so smal compared to the car next to it!  And yet it is a roomy car....
At least you guys can go to a pub!

Appias, like HPEs, are Tardises - bigger on the inside.  Lancia made good use of space.  See also the usable rear seats and huge boot of a Flavia/2000 Coupe.  Its boot is a cavern.  Compare and contrast, for example, its rivals the Alfa Bertone GTV and the Fiat 124 Coupe - their rear seats are for hamsters only (OK, Beta Coupes are the same), and the boots are small to medium sized at best.   The Appia has a decent boot space for its size.

When still a student we managed to get with six grown up (at least physically) people into my Beta coupé, although I must admit a head was sticking out of the sunroof, and shifting gears was a bit troublesome...

When I was a student...
we managed to get 4 adults in a Fiat 126. With tents, sleeping bags, stove, and camera gear (each) for airshows at RAF Fairford and Farnborough. No roof rack either. I think it was snug inside!

Summer 1966, Austin 1100, four adults (my parents - aged twenty eight, and my favourite aunt and uncle, aged thirty), three children aged five, four (me), and two, a huge tent, and luggage (roof rack) - Birmingham to Pisa and back again.   Some of my earliest memories are of that trip.  My uncle did all the driving as none of the other adults knew how to drive at that time.

Summer 1969 - by that time my dad had learned to drive.  Three adults and ten children in a Morris Traveller for a day trip to a seaside town.

Austin 1100 was another brilliantly conceived car - a world leader at the time and very nice to drive even if not up to Lancia quality standards.

In memory of my favourite uncle, I've come close to buying an Austin 1100 on several occasions, but I've never done so. 

I wonder if Fessia and Issigonis ever met.

My father in law had an 1800 Landcrab which he described as a small detached bungalow with a wheel at each corner. The best load I heard of though was just 4 adults and 6 teenagers.

Hmmm, Appia carb leaking fuel.   Not ideal!

There is a small crack in the float chamber cover.   Jim at the Consortium has a cover available.   

I have by the way only just learned the factoid that the little Solex is the same as used on a Willy's Jeep.

Various improvements - the carb has been repaired, and the throttle cable has been adjusted to operate more smoothly.
