VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Classic Car Overview

This is the last iteration and the ultimate refinement of the 1963 Lancia Appia Sport Zagato on the highly desirable shorter wheelbase. This is available for public sale for the first time in 40 years and one of only 200 made. This has been part of a large collection of important motorcars in the Los Angeles area owned by a very knowledgeable collector of rare and highly original examples. This Lancia is no exception and does not disappoint. It wears its correct and original California Black Plates helping to attest to its provenance. This Zagato was bought by the present owner about 40 years ago in Newport Beach, CA. It had previously been owned by the well known TV Producer, Arthur Vitarelli , who made scores of shows including Mary Poppins, Zorro and The Love Bug. Mr. Vitarelli would often drive the Zagato from Newport Beach to the studios (at a time when traffic was rare in Southern California). The Pale Green livery is a repaint from about seven years ago and is still in very nice and serviceable condition. The glass, chrome and stainless trim are all original and in good condition. We love the fastback rooflines and the Frenched taillights. The Appia Sport was the design inspiration of the young Ercole Spada who had just joined Zagato. It was his mission to adapt the Appia GTE bodywork to the shorter, 92.5 inch wheelbase (a full 6.3 inches in wheelbase and 8 inches shorter overall than the Zagato GTE). The result is stunning! The interior is in very nice condition overall, with the original black leather and carpet being replaced a couple years ago. Black Wilton wool carpet was installed in the front of the passenger compartment with the original black carpeting in the rear somewhat faded. The original Blaupunkt AM/FM stereo is installed and not presently working. The Lancia Appia is powered by the more powerful Series 3 V4 1.1 liter engine that produces 60 hp. It features a four speed manual transmission with synchromesh in the top three gears. According to the owner, the Lancia is in good overall mechanical condition. The fuel tank has a non-original inside tank that was installed years ago. This Zagato comes complete with NOS suspension components as well and historical documentation from the seller. The odometer is displaying 6,758 miles, but the true mileage is unknown. For more details and information, please call or text Harry Clark at 1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com . The Lancia remains with its present owner in the Los Angeles vicinity.
