Description

William I’Anson Ltd are delighted to offer for sale the ex - Philip Morris, Marlboro Press Car 1974 Lancia Stratos Stradale.

The third Lancia Stratos Stradale ever produced, numbered 1003 with body number 4 and finished in Rosso. Sold to Philip Morris Cigarettes in 1974 and used by them in Marlboro livery as a press car. Present at many race, rally and show events, 1003 remained in Marlboro colours through the 1970s.

Sold to England in 1980, 1003 is only in its second ownership since, lasting around 20 years with each. Used enthusiastically in the current ownership, 1003 has been subject of extensive work which included engine rebuild, suspension rebuilt and repaint.

Presented today remaining fresh from rebuild, and liveried once more in the iconic Marlboro colours it wore from new.

One of the earliest remaining Lancia Stratos Stradale, one of only a handful of cars to ever be owned by Philip Morris Cigarettes and wear the Marlboro livery, 1003 sits in an special group of historically significant Lancia.
