About this car

This is a genuine 1600HF tipo 818.740 model and one of 3690 made. It was supplied new in Italy and first registered in Sicily on 28/4/1972.

According to the Italian papers on file, our car first changed hands in 1978 to a new Catania based owner who would keep his cherished HF until 2016; in the history file, there is even a photo of him with the car in 1978 when he first took delivery.

The Lancia was used regularly until 2002 when it was repainted in the original Lancia blue colour and thereafter used sparingly, mostly on regulatory rallies and other local events such as the Targa Florio tribute in 2004.

The HF left Sicily for the first time in 2016 when it was imported into the UK and sold to the current owner, who has retained the stock Lusso appearance but invested in an exciting high performance engine and other improvements, the aim being to achieve a technically brilliant example. Over £31,000 of receipted expenditure with the likes of specialist Tanc Barratt shows the cost no object approach taken with this car.

The icing on the cake is the very cool “Torino” style personalised registration number.

This car isn’t a show pony so it does have some cosmetic age related wear but is quite superb to drive and is ready for your next event or road trip.


The body on our car is nice and straight with decent panel fitment. The Lancia blue repaint (the original colour) has some touched in areas and some colour variation. Most panels have small marks or imperfections but as you see she polishes up well and makes for a strong first impression. The doors were recently rebuilt and repainted.

The chassis has received attention in recent years with new floors and other works. All stainless trim is present with a few parking dings. The Cromodora alloy wheels wear their original dull finish.
