    Finally found (and now own) a Lancia Scorpion!!

    A few years ago I began my search for a Lancia Scorpion. I ended up inherenting a project car Beta Coupe that was supposed to be turned into a vintage racer. Then came along an 81 Lancia Zagato (black and gold) which took precedence over the Coupe and I’m now getting her ready for the summer. Now comes a 1976 Lancia Scorpion...right in my backyard. So close that I purchased it from an ex-girlfriend’s (from high school) cousin. They are extremely nice and wonderful people and I am so honored and lucky that they have entrusted me with this car.

    Here are a few pics from when I was loading her up. Last time she was on the road was in 1989. However, the PO ran her regularly and she started right up. I had a bit of trouble getting her into gear as I believe a lone my be broke or deteriorated. I have a video of the engine running but not sure how to post it.

    Here are a couple more pics. She is very original and unrestored and you can only be those two once so if I can bring back her original paint, redo the seats and make her mechanically well, I will keep her as an "original driver quality car" for as long as I can befor doing a full restoration.

    Congrats on the acquisition! What number is your Scorpion? Has it been reported to the Montecarlo registry?
