This 1977 Lancia Scorpion
is in the hands of its third enthusiast owner from new, with just under 77,000
documented original miles. The original owner kept it until 1981 when it went
to its second caretaker. I purchased it from him in July, 2011. It is
completely original- and that is rare for these cars.


I am an automotive
historian, appraiser, writer and Lancia enthusiast who looked for the right
Scorpion for many years before finding this one. I wanted a car that was as it
left the Pininfarina factory for America- without modifications and
‘updating’. 


The more desirable ‘flying
buttress roof’ model, it has never been neglected or left parked in a barn. The
original paint shows a few signs of aging but is very presentable. It features
the original vinyl interior, which shows minor signs of wear and aging, as does
some rubber trim. It has its working original cassette radio and speakers, the
power windows operate perfectly as do the seat backrest wand adjusters.


The top functions correctly
and the 1800cc single carb engine runs beautifully. The factory A/C blows
strong and cold and recent work has included shift linkage bushings and an
emissions system overhaul. It has been driven on the Texas 1000 rally and
performed superbly, and been shown at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering in
Carmel Valley, CA. 


This Scorpion is a blast to
drive, with superb handling balance, excellent visibility and stunning looks.
The large front trunk holds sufficient luggage for a weekend or week on the
road, which this car encourages you to take. This is a rare opportunity to find
an unmolested, always cared for and driven Lancia Scorpion. The car can be
viewed by appointment in Palm Springs, CA.
