The original owner claimed he bought them with the car as a dealer upgrade. They are the original silver. At some point long ago the HF letters was put on the rear alongside the 1.3s. Those will go bye bye. I think the gold wheels will look great with this color.
    i would believe those to be a dealer installed upgrade. my car has a set too as well as a formula one enterprises momo steering wheel, both installed by the dealer. (or so i was told)

Of course as with most things Lancia, there are likely as many exceptions as rules...
    Hi Ed I have 2 originals of this article and cannot convince myself the wheels are gold. Indeed the rear wheels look grey and the fronts look dirty in the poor photographs. Interestingly that car is a 1.2HF and competed in 1967 in a very limited way - 3 events (consensus is this car does not exist anymore). I suppose it could have had an engine upgrade as this was the time the 1.3HF came into being. Another thought is the number plate could just have been moved to another 1.3HF for press work as the car has the works 1.3HF seats....
