Whilst ferreting around for original material to help with the Appia furgoncino rebuild, I came across this book for the first time.

I have since discovered that it was reviewed by Jack (I think) in VL a few years ago and Ade has mentioned it here on the Forum, but it is a beautiful book and worth another mention !

For those of you who haven't come across it, Bruce Lindsay has taken a slightly different approach to Lancia history, using period sales literature and photos to tell the story. It is especially good (in my humble opinion) for the commercials. I thought I knew a bit about buses, lorries and scout cars, but no way - this is exhaustive ......

Some nice, simplified data panels give production runs and general stats and show that I now need to find out what has happened to the other 432 Appia S2 furgoncinos !

The DVD that comes with it is also very useful (it has a pdf of virtually every sales brochure produced by Lancia up to 1975),  the original photos help with some of the finer details when trying to rebuild a car to original spec.

The only problem is that it has (almost) removed the need to find the original material !    Having said that I did buy a lovely original of the furgoncino/camioncino sales brochure , but don't tell Juliet !
