1978 LANCIA MONTECARLO
Celeste blue, 27,500 miles from new, mot till 24/06/10
The last owner acquired the Lancia from a garage in Cornwall in September 97, it was a local car supplied from a dealership in Plymouth in 78. The garage where he bought the car knew it well due to the fact that they took it in part exchange on three occasions 1980, 1994, 1997. The garage could assured him of the care and cosseting it received from all previous owners.
With the car is the MOT certificate from when he purchased the car 12 years ago stating the mileage and written confirmation from the owners of the garage that the mileage was genuine. The garage is a well- known prestigious business and is still in operation. Because the car has not been used very much in its lifetime there are not many written documents. The green original owners handbook is with the car. The owner prior to the last kept the car in a garage and did not use it for 14 years except to run it to keep the engine etc in tip-top condition. In the past 12 years only 3,000 miles were put on the clock. It has been MOTd regularly and there is all the paperwork from the past 12 years intact.
The car has appeared at several Lancia Owners club meetings, so it is known in those circles and I am aware that it is one of the best in the country, still available. There is no rust, it is wonderful - floor pans as original, turrets as original and all original body panels. An exceptional example.
