Description

Being one of 4’300 Gamma coupés from the first Series with a carburetted engine, this example was originally delivered in May 1980 by the Lancia agents in Aarburg to its first owner. In June 1985, the car, which by then had covered 60’000 km, was stored in a heated garage until March 2008, when it was carefully recommissioned, including a replacement of the cam belts with their tensioners, the rear shock absorbers, wheel bearings and the complete exhaust system. The brakes and radiator were overhauled, the headlining replaced, the interior thoroughly cleaned and the body carefully polished. At the end of 2009 the Lancia was taken over by the only second (and current) owner and the Veteran MOT was successfully completed in October 2010. The following years, the car was lovingly maintained and, in October 2019, at 67’567 km the engine block was overhauled incl. new pistons, main- and conrod-bearings. The heads were shimmed and the cambelts were replaced again. In December 2019 the Lancia was shod with four new tyres. Naturally, all the work performed since 2008 is well documented. With now only 70’000 km on the clock, the Gamma is in very good, lovingly cared-for condition. Coachwork and interior are in nearly untouched original shape and the original document folder includes the service booklet. The most recent Veteran MOT was completed in October 2019.
