What Car Is This? Now Updated With More Pics Of The Lancia Appia

My SIL shot this in Europe, and sent it to me. I think I have it narrowed down to a few key suspects, but I’ll let you pinpoint it.

Update: you guys got it, with the Appia. That was my hunch too, but then I knew it was from Italy (where’s the “I”)? Tonight, SIL sends a few more pictures; I didn’t know she had them. Oh well.

The Appia was Lancia’s smallest car, and lived in the shadows of its more famous siblings, the Aurelia and Flamina. But the Appia developed a rep for being extremely well-built and very reliable. It used a 1098 cc version of the famous Lancia narrow-angle V4, and was built in three series between 1953 and 1963.
