Typical Zagato Look: ’60 Lancia Appia Zagato Series III
This 1960 Lancia Appia GTE Series 3 Zagato Coupe is a rare bird. It is powered by a narrow-angle V-4 engine capable of producing 60 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel drum brakes. The Zagato bodied cars were lightweight coupe GTs and proved to be very capable machines in competition, including the Mille Miglia. The Series 3 cars had covered headlights and a smooth roof. This car has been the subject of a restoration a few years back and still looks fresh. It is finished in red paint with a tan and dark-brown vinyl interior. Our research shows that this car (unless there is a twin with these unique driving lights) sold in 2008 at the Gooding & Company auction held in Pebble Beach, California. It was estimated to sell for $125,000 – $175,000. The lot was sold for $104,500, including buyer’s premium. The Sports Car Market Price Guide has top cars approaching $125,000. Not sure if the market moved to warrant this seller’s asking price of $125,000. It has a lot going for it: rarity, restored, California and Italian. Click here to see the eBay listing.
