The Lancia Ardea was a small family car produced by Lancia between 1939 and 1953. Its unusually short bonnet contained the smallest V4 configured engine ever commercialised in a small family car. After the Second World War, more than 8,500 commercial adaptations of the Ardea known as Furgoncini (light van versions) and the Camioncini (car based light commercials) were also produced. The Furgoncino, literally meaning, small van, had already been built in 1941, however, full production only begun in 1945.
We are please to present, what is possibly, just one of two Lancia Ardea Furgoncinos known in the UK. This example, built in 1947, was imported into the UK from Italy and is now UK registered. Presented with dark grey over black coachwork, this little Lancia requires completion, the 903cc, V4 engine having been removed, however, this charming van would make an ideal promotional vehicle or just a weekend runabout. Please note, the engine is complete with the van. With fully running examples fetching more than double our estimate, we feel that this represents excellent value and is an ideal opportunity for Lancia and commercial vehicle enthusiasts alike.
