I'd put this in the cars for sale section but it's not allowing me to post there yet? Can an admin move this?

Spotted on Facebook. No connection to the seller.

Describe it as a Fiat Brava....

That's quite a good price for the description.

For info, you can enter the correct details on marketplace by selecting the appropriate dropdown option.
It's, I think, a 2 step process.

I checked it's MOT history with the DVLA - currently expired, not many recorded and a 10 year off the road period. Not that that matters really. Look before you leap? Hope it's back on the road soon.

The listing describes it at "NOT Brava". Has the vendor edited it? If it was pre first facelift I'd be seriously twitching for my wallet.

Facebook marketplace doesn't know what a Lancia is unfortunately hence why this person has listed it as someone else - same thing happened to the seller I bought mine from.

Attractive car and an unusual colour - presuming that and the pinstriping are not original

I'd agree the striping is non standard but very much of its period like this Spider (Zagato) in the US. (For my sins it also slightly reminds be of the stripe on the Brabham tuned Vauxhall Viva HB.)

I like that Smiley It's like someone had asked what if there had been a John Player Special version of a Spider

Sold, it appears, and for a bargain price.   I saw this advertised when it was for sale by its elderly owner last year.    EDIT:  No I didn't. I saw another green one, but that was an early 1600.
