Lancia Appia 3rd Series

Even if this is my least favourite version of the Appia, the third, subject of a Flaminiesque front restyling, this car, the Lancia’s range entry level, has all that an elegant sedan has to embody.
At the shooting time (my bad) I didn’t shot the classic “panno Lancia” interior that reserve that warm feeling of a well styled car.

As I already said, even in the 2nd series Appia video on YT (I’ll put it also in IGTV in the next weeks) not essentially a luxury one, but an elegant and refined ambient that leaves a great sense of distinction.
On this car in photo, a big contribution comes from the color, the Azzurro Vincennes metallic, a good midway between grey and alluminium.

Showed by the Registro Italiano Lancia Appia (here at the Auto e Moto d’Epoca Padua) fair, these tiny Lancia quite cheap to buy but really charming to have, if you are not a guy in a hurry.

MG Midget MKIII

One side of the MG/Austin Healey connection. This is a fine tiny MG Midget third series, in an interesting orange color, caught on sunday at the “Domeniche al Piazzale” gathering in Florence, Italy.

This third series (recessed front grille, rounded rear arches) could be dated back to 1972-1974 just before the introduction of the odd rubber bumpers (requested by the US regulations).
These little British spiders are not that common here around.

In the same meeting there was also a Austin Healey Sprite MK I, the frogeye, and it’s quite upsetting the strong lost of personality that affected that model when they unified the production with the MG Midget.

Mercedes-Benz 250 SL (1967)

If you’ve seen the stories, you already know that today is a special day for the Mercedes-Benz world. A good celebration require a coordinated post, and what’s better than a Pagoda?

This Mercedes SL W113 is powered by the 6 cylinders, 2.5 liters MB engine and is the rarest version of the Pagoda: made for only one year, has been produced in only 5200 pieces.

The car in photo, from the 2020 @milanoautoclassica fair is a US specs car (you can spot the sealed-beam front lights) imported in Italy in 2005, in a wonderful color combination.

I suggest you to spot the third picture of the carousel to the great leather interior matched with a wonderful Nardi wooden steering wheel. Awesome car.

Citroën Traction Avant 11BL (1952)

What’s more classic than this. The beauty of a Traction Avant, the car I always name as the “perfect wedding machine”.

This 11BL is a late production model from 1955 (you can spot the straight bumpers and the bigger trunk). Remember that the original TA has been presented in 1934, in a world that was so different from the date of this car.

Simca 1000 Rallye2 (1977)

The last years of the Simca 1000 has been powerful and sturdy. A project that inevitably was facing its age, pushed to the limit with the last Rallye versions.

Here a late Rallye 2 version from 1977, a post restyling version with the squared front headlights, to follow the 70s vibes.

Under the hood more than 80 HP, the last step before the end with the fireworks of the Rallye 3. Good memories for many with those little pest.

BMW 2002tii (1975)

With the classic cars you’ve to be always aware!
Here I was gettin’ back from office and this orange thing come in front of me. The awesome BMW 2002 Tii in immaculate conditions just came by stopping in this repair shop.

Driver was quite in a hurry but there was time to catch some pics and take a look at the 2 liters 4 Cylinders BMW engine, here powered with the Kugelfischer mechanic injection, providing 130HP.

It’s the most powerful series 02 car behind the Turbo, quite a thing at my eyes, but when I approached the owner with this words he complained that his true dream was an Alpina version. How to not agree…..

Volkswagen-Porsche 914 2.0

The story is quite known. A joint venture to unite two brands with a linked history but a different identity for a mid engined small car to substitute the Porsche 912 on one hand and the VW Karmann-Ghia on the other (evenf if the KG stood still at its place till 1974!).

“In medio stat virtus” philosophers say, but maybe not this time. Too much for a VW not much for a Porsche, the 914 never got the hoped success.
It’s gettin’ some attention in this years and I’m glad of it as if you don’t care about brands and identity, you get a fancy midengined small car to drive and have fun.

Fiat 126 (1972)

A very common Italian sight in the late 70s/80s, quite disappered nowadays (in contrast with the car it was meant to substitute, the 500), the Fiat 126 was the perfect A-to-B city transporter back then.

Is not a secret it made its fortune even outside Italy, and most of all in Poland where it became what the 500 has been for Italy: a real mass mover.
This one, peacefully parked in a green street near Florence is a intense early model dated 1972, first year of production.

Don’t be fooled by the white powder you can see on the top.
Is a pure daily, only parked under a molest tree.
As quite everyone guessed, was the #tccchallenge protagonist. Results will come up later in the afternoon

DKW F89 (1952)

As part of the big family of mdels based on the F9 prototype, the F89 is the first mass production DKW model after the end of the WWII.
Basically the name defines its nature as that 8-9 means that this car is a combo of the F9 desing retaining the two cylinders engine of the F8.

Here we have 23HP under the hood for a car that draw a line that will be kapt quite intact till the first years of the 60s.
One of the peculiarities of the the F89 is that it has a sister. At the end of WWII, with the division of the German territory, the Soviet Union gained control of the east part of the country.

The DKW F9 production projects were found in the abandoned Auto Union factory in Zwickau, so the DDR created a model based on the same prototype: the IFA F9. The body is almost identical to the F9 (and F89) and it retained the same F8 engine (even the F8 has been cloned by the IFA).
I really appreciate these lines. The descending back (look at the second pic) gives to these 2 doors cars a distinctive look. I’ve been glad to put the car in the last #tccchallenge that turned out as one of the toughtest of the season.
