The Lancia Ardea was quite an innovative and advanced car for its era, featuring a monocoque chassis with pillarless bodywork, a five-speed transmission and 12-volt electrics. This 903cc example is described by the vendor as running very well and regularly used, and was restored in Italy around 2015. It was initially registered and used in Italy in 1952, but only registered in the UK in May 2016, post-restoration. Since coming to the UK, it has had two registered keepers. Its odometer shows 3799km. As an historic vehicle, the Lancia is now MoT-exempt; there is no online record of it having had one while in the UK. The paperwork accompanying the car includes the V5C, Italian registration documentation and the car's Italian ASI plaque.
